GREAT experience! They truly do provide all drinks and a great experience for a very low price. They constantly come by and see if you need drinks, help you out in any way you need, and the food was excellent! Hell, they chased us down and gave us several beers or cocktails to drink on the taxi ride back to... More

A place is just next to a dive center, on the beech. Good to have a refreshing glass of beer or a good fruit smoothie just after the dive :)

We were there on a cruise ship, we get off the ship and took a shuttle from the port down to the center of town. It was $3 a person for the shuttle. Don't let the ride through town scare you. Once you get to the back of the building, you will be at a nice palm tree covered beach.... More

Yaya has really comfortable lounge beds, as well as a beautiful beachfront. Its one of the nicer, more modern beach bars in town. It has a beautiful aesthetic. The guacamole is great, as well as some of the tacos. Sitting in the swings at the bar while you drink your day away is nice as well. Highly recommend visiting here.... More

My cruise ship made a stop in Costa Maya and booked an excursion to Ya-Ya beach through their website. It's about a 10 min and $10 cab ride from the cruise ports. The resort is located in a good area where there is shopping, restaurants and beach. This resort had loungers and beds and well maintained. We had the double... More

My wife and I saw this on Trip advisor so we decided to check it out and I'm glad we did. It's a $2 cab ride from the cruise ship. Drinks are good. Food wasn't bad at all. For the price it's a worth it. We did the all inclusive price and got our money's worth. We will be back... More

Great little beach resort, excellent service from our host Manil(not sure about the spelling). We had our own private little corner with beach bed, lounge chairs and picnic table. Snorkeling was great and reasonable.

I hesitate to write this review as I don't want too many people going to Yaya's when I go back! Seriously though, we researched on line and booked this on our own (not through Carnival) for our stop in Costa Maya. Short trolley ride ($5) from the cruise port to Yaya's in Mahahual Mexico. (You must take a trolley from... More

Yaya Beach is the newest beach club in Costa Maya, Mahahual. Our goal is to satisfy our customers by offering an unforgettable beach experience. What we call "Yaya day" will be the best memory of your vacation: it's not a regular beach break - our guests just chill at the beach and let us take care of them in our Yaya way. We speak English, Spanish, Italian and our restaurant and bar combine tropical drinks and cocktails, with local seafood and Mexican style dishes, including lobster. Plus, if you want something more than pure relax, the beach club hosts DOCTOR DIVE, the best and safest dive center in Costa Maya for snorkeling, discover scuba diving and boat trips. Moreover we have free wifi, showers, massages and male/female restrooms. Purified water is used for all Yaya food and beverage.
