We always go the flea market on the beach, its four or five blocks long, free beach. Lots of good food and a 20.00 dollar massage for 1 hour, ( the price goes down as you go up the beach. You will not regret it.

Take shuttle into town for $3 and exit shuttle on the third and last stop. You will avoid 99% of all tourists and get to quit beach before everyone. Negotiate and get $35 one hour massage on beach. It is awesome!

Grab a local taxi to Tropicante bar. It's on the beach and owned by a guy from Dallas. $2 each in a taxi plus tip (from outside cruise port). Sun beds on the beach and you just pay for drinks and lunch! They also offer cheap massages!

Chacchoben Mayan Ruins! That's all I can say! I have never enjoyed sweating in a rainforest so much! Learned a lot and had fun doing it! Even bought some organic chewing gum which originated from the gum trees there :)

Pool (no charge), restaurant/bar with swim up, and shops where you arrive. If you're looking to shop for souvenirs, go to the shops at the end of the Plaza. They'll give you the best prices.

This is going to be a fantastic port as they continue to add to it. All new facilities. Very nice restaurants, up scale shops, spa facilities, pool, swim with the dolphins. When the kids are bigger, there appears to be a large water park not far from dock.
