4 out of 5
Costa Maya was very nice although they had a severe sea weed problem when we arrived. Overall nice quaint community. Did the beach snorkel excursion. Overall was good. Would have liked to seen more fish.

Cozumel, Mexico

4 out of 5
Been here several times. It has grown over the years. Weather was not to goid the day we arrived but we did an awesome ATV jungle/snorkel excursion that I highly reccomend. Not a fan of the vendors trying to lure you in their shops.
