Playa Mia beach break. It was very close to port and even though multiple ships were in port it didn't feel full surprisingly. Even though the ship was offering it as an excursion, we just took a cab and paid 60 per person for unlimited everything including food and liquor. Service was great, people were soooo pleasant. When it was time to leave, cabs were waiting right outside exit. playamiacozumel dot com
Please oh please book some sort of reputable excursion here. We woke up late and got a tour from a company located inside the port area of Falmouth. He brought us to a garbage ridden beach. he told us there was a bathroom and a bar, however it was more like a guy with a cooler and using the water as a bathroom.
We didn't catch the name of the company, but they were located in a building inside the port mall area. Our driver did offer us his private card for future needs. Of course we will never call. I am only listing his number as a warning. His card read Arnold's Sunshine tours 876-820-0909 sunshinetours1@yahoo dot com
Much of swimming areas had rocks that cut up your feet, however there is a lagoon that is rock free. Ask a worker to direct you to the no rock area.
