When looking for things to do in Costa Maya, Maya Chan kept coming up over and over again. I typically stick to ship-sponsored excursions, but we were all SOOO glad we decided to... read more

When looking for things to do in Costa Maya, Maya Chan kept coming up over and over again. I typically stick to ship-sponsored excursions, but we were all SOOO glad we decided to venture out this time! Make sure to read the directions on how to get to the taxi stand. We slept in a little and arrived later than... More

We were a family of 17 ranging in ages from 20-70 and all of us agreed our day at Maya Chan was great. We easily found the designated pick up spot where we were quickly given our wrist bands and loaded into two taxi vans. The trip to Maya Chan was 25-30 minutes and the road was very bumpy, but...

This was my first cruise that included Costa Maya as a port. My parents had been to Maya Chan a few years ago and wanted to return so we made a point of booking an itinerary that included this as a stop. I'll be honest, Costa Maya itself isn't really a port I'll go out of my way to return... More

This place was probably the highlight of our trip, we sure were talking about it for the remainder of the cruise :) The service was excellent, the drinks delicious and we were never without drinks. The food was good and it was nice to have a dedicated spot in the shade. They even brought drinks to people in the water.... More

What an incredible place!! I will admit that all our party, were slightly nervous about the ride out to the location...HOWEVER it was so worth it. Taxie/Van driver so friendly. The view was nice during the ride, but you have to keep in mind it's a small poor area, but full of beauty! Maya Chan is a Gem of all... More

-Just back from there. Our first time to Costa Maya-not sure how to describe Costa Maya, the port is very modern and lot of shopping, actually almost more shopping than anywhere we have been. We truly enjoyed Maya Chan, not the best beach we have ever been but it is one of the most memorable and enjoyable things we have... More

Four of us booked a day trip to this resort, and upon arriving from our cruise ship as directed were transported to a truly wonderful day. I would add that many of the reviews talk about the bumpy ride to/from, and if you have aversion to that, DO NOT make a reservation. In addition, the seaweed the day we were... More

It was a great overall experience beach day! We were in a large group of 13 and they treated us great! We never went without. The beach area was not that big but they had games, interludes, kayaks, etc to keep you busy. They had us a shaded area as well as an area we could sun ourselves. The hammocks... More

Thank you for coming and enjoying the resort. We are a very small beach resort. "Chan" means "little" in Mayan. Hence Maya Chan Beach in Mayan, would be " Little Mayan Beach". Glad you enjoyed the water and beach. Come back soon. More
