Included free food and drinks. Enjoyed the sunny weather and calm beach water, outer breakers help to keep water calm. Food was great and our server was attentive to our needs. We did get the occasional sales pitch from the locals but they were polite and not pushy even when they saw my wife buy something we were NOT suddenly surrounded by locals as mentioned by other cruiser comments.

Uvero Beach.
Uvero Beach. Only 40 or so people were on this excursion with us. Had a great time, felt like we had the whole place to ourselves. Would do this excursion again.

This was a repeat visit for us at Maya Chan. Can't say enough good about the all-inclusive beach day. The staff take great care of their customers. Transportation to and from the resort is included (the road to MC is rough but worth it). Activities included: Paddle boards, Kayaks, water chairs, volley ball, bean bag toss and other various games. Food included: Authentic Mexican style taco meal where you build your taco as you like it. And of course the best Sex on the Maya Chan drinks! Read Less

Just did our own thing... shuttle to beach at Mahahual. Margaritas and Nachos and walking the beach area then taxied back.

We booked the Almaplena Beach Break directly with the resort. The resort is beautiful. It had already rained there by the time we arrived. We enjoyed cool, breezy, overcast weather for about 3 hours. Drinks and lunch were included. Lunch was the most well-seasoned guacamole that I’ve ever eaten, black bean nachos, shrimp tacos, and steak tacos. The resort staff arranged pick up times with the cab driver when we arrived. We were in the cab and on our way back to the port by 3:15 ship time for a 4:30 onboard time. It's a 60 minute round trip cab ride on very bumpy roads but it's worth every penny. Read Less

This was amazing. You get a free shuttle there and a free taxi ride back. If you have a collapsible wheelchair, that will work as well. The ride to the beach is 5-10 minutes tops. There are a lot of people on the beach, but you get to know lots of great people that way. You can still relax even with the popularity of this excursion. You can stay as long as you want. There are attendants that give you drinks at no charge (please tip) unlimited amount as well. I don't recommend getting the icy drinks. Will was a fantastic attendant and very helpful. There is a swimming pool you can access if you don't want to swim in the ocean. Plenty of shade available, but make sure you get there early to get a spot. Read Less

Just chilled out in the water. Rented snorkel masks from a lady for $10 a piece -- great investment! Snorkeling was the best part of the beach break. We loved seeing all the fish and coral.

Jungle Beach tour was okay, the beach was difficult to get into the water but they had kayaks, and other activities to rent. We ate in the small restaurant on the beach and it was very good. You took a taxi back to the port at any time. Nice but not my favorite because to the length of walking to get back to the ship etc. very tiring especially in the heat. If you do not have a mobility problem you will be fine. Read Less

We enjoyed this beach break. The beach was a bit rocky but that didn't bother us. The water was lovely and clear. There were lounge chairs with umbrellas for shade and a very attentive waiter who cheerfully brought us drinks. There were some people on our excursion who were loudly complaining about the quality of the beach but it was very peaceful once they decided to leave. There were a few vendors nearby hawking the usual items but we were happy to find a gentleman who was a teacher for a local high school who had items made by the students. The proceeds went to the school and we were happy to purchase hand made items for a good cause. He recommended a cafe on the beach which offered fresh seafood and we were very happy to try it out - it was excellent! Great atmosphere and food (the fish tacos were fantastic)! Read Less
