The place is beautiful but very poorly put together outside the port. We booked our excursion individually with Native Choice and they were wonderful but there are not part of the port vendors so no one will drive you to their building about 15 min...More

Wonderful soft and sandy beaches, warm and cristal clear water, palm-trees and loads of bars en restaurants to find all you need. Definitely go for a snorkeling or diving trip along the reef.

Menus don’t have prices on them....so you are at their mercy when they figure up the bill! Kinda felt like we got scammed and left a bitter taste in our mouth on our first time in this port!

The beach is lovely, but it is extremely busy on "cruise ship" days. The small streets will be filled with tourists and eager vendors trying to make a living. We stayed in Mahahual for 6 days and discovered that if you want "cheaper eats" on...More

Take a taxi, it's faster and only $2/person each way. They'll drop you wherever you want along the beach. To access, just exit the port, there's a taxi stand 50 feet from the entrance, can't miss it. When they bring you... More
