Costa Maya is developing and growing, so it's not fancy. We took a cab to the near-by Senor Frogs beach resort. It was a 5 minute drive and very affordable. We got all-inclusive bracelets for all the drinks you want at the bar. There's a nice swimming pool, the beach was pretty, and the lounge chairs and palapas were included. There are restaurants in walking distance within the resort, as well as shopping. It was an easy, affordable port, and we were able to stay a long time and get our money's worth, since we were so close to the port.
