Mayan Beach Garden
Travel Blogs from Majahual
It was a long straight road to get here, punctuated by a few towns, several topes and the odd pothole. Just over five hours later we reached El Placer, miles from anywhere, just a small collection of beach houses, one of which is Mayan Beach Garden. This whole area was affected by Hurricane Dean in August 2007, the most powerful Atlantic storm to …
A port day. Responsibilities come with port days. Today it is Costa Maya. With about fifty Cruise Critic friends, I have a day at the beach at Tropicante, a $2.00 per person taxi ride (yes, only $2.00) from the port to the beach. John and Scott have reserved places for us all; some loungers and some tables and chairs. I opt for a chair at a table under an umbrella under a pair of palm trees. Our host there is a transplanted American, Steve. If you come ...

We managed to hit just about every deck on the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsMayan Beach Garden Majahual
All we have done for two days is sit in the sun, swim in the sea, walk along the beach and watch pelicans. We have a lovely airy room with a balcony, sea view and a beautiful mosaic bedhead that gave the room real style. We went for the meal plan option and have been delighted with every meal, especially Chris's veggie options, and have enjoyed eating 'en famille' for dinner, and chatting with other guests.
