We took a taxi to the beach, $4pp/one way, and they dropped us off at El Tropicante. It was very relaxing! You can pick whichever chairs or loungers you want, and simply order whatever food and drink you want all day. No cover price, no reservation fee, no minimum order amount, just show up, eat, drink, be merry, and pay your tab at the end of the day. Perfect! And beautiful. Not secluded in any respect, but we didn't mind being around other tourists in Mexico. There were people selling items, but they didn't harrass us at all. If you're not interested, we just said no thank you, and they moved on. We would definitely go back! Read Less

I pre-booked a stay at Maya Chan here, and they warned us about aggressive people in port. They were right. It is quite confusing to get out. At the meeting point, they said they had a storm the night before, which brought in massive amounts of seaweed. They showed us a photo and gave us the choice of going or a refund. I chose to still go. The van ride took about 20 minutes. And when they say the road is bumpy, they mean it! The driver did a good job of navigating it, though. We arrived, staff gave us a tour of the place and showed me to my area. Since I was solo, I had a beach chair and an umbrella, which was perfect. The guacamole they provide is delicious. The seaweed was definitely abundant, but they had people clearing it from the moment we arrived until the moment I left, and they still didn't get it all. But that didn't stop the kids in other groups from getting in the ocean. I passed, however. We arrived in port rather late, so they didn't end up serving lunch until about 2 or so, but it was as good as everyone says. Tacos - and the best part was that all ingredients were separate and you created your own plate, so you could avoid any foods you didn't like. They had an amazing hot sauce that I wish I had a bottle of for home. One thing you hear about Maya Chan ia the amazing service. I'm not sure on this yet. I don't know if it was because I was by myself or what, but the servers would all go around to different groups to refill drinks, and just about every time they skipped me, so I had to walk up to the bar to get a drink. First world problems, I know. The highlight of my time there, though, was the massage. They offered a 1-hour massage for $45. Worth. Every. Penny. A very petite woman (which I am also such) gave me the best massage I think I ever had. They asked us when we wanted to leave, took us back to port, and on to the ship we went! They called three people multiple times. I'm not sure if they ever made it back to the ship. One thing I thought was strange was that they had us turn our clocks forward one hour before Costa Maya and then back that night. Read Less
