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!

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.

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 :)

Take the tour that goes to the ruins and the takes you to a Mayan village where the local women cook an authentic Mayan lunch for you. It is a small and delightful tour! Awesome!

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.

We booked an all-inclusive beach resort (YaYa Beach) prior to boarding the ship. It was a good decision. Very relaxing. Had our own waiter all day (Sergio), and he brought us food and drink all day. The beach bed was comfy. The view was beautiful. It was a perfect day!
