It saddens me to see the 1 & 2 star reviews on here. We did the Dune Buggy through the city excursion. We were able to see what Costa Maya really is. I felt it a privilege to be able to tour their city. Our guide was wonderful. He showed us the good & the not so good. He explained what we were going to see. Explaining was one thing but seeing was another. These people have nothing (in most cases). But they have great hearts & they were so excited to see us come by. The children would come out & wave & smile at us. I was more excited than they were. It was a humbling experience & one I’ll never forget. I saw the seaweed & I smelled the seaweed. I also was able to understand that they can’t control Mother Nature and her ocean. If you get the chance to visit Costa Maya take advantage of it. Explore & experience the hospitality the city & its residents have to offer. I hope you are able to see what we were. Plus they have great Mexican blown glass to purchase. Thank you for reading this review.

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!

Cozumel was my favorite port UNTIL I saw Costa maya. Wow. Beautiful. My wife actually had tears watching the dolphins lol. She said it was a child hood dream and she didn't know they would be right there at the port

$2 dollar cab to the beach and $20 dollar professional message how can you beat this, $10 dollar all day bicycle rentals, what more do you need, Plenty of seats on the sand if you buy from their restaurant, definitely a good day.
