We arrived in Costa Maya with a private excursion booked to Maya Chan. Unfortunately due to mother nature, that beach was inundated with see weed, so we wound up in the town of Costa Maya.It's a very short trip from the port, and I think we paid $2 bucks per person for a taxi ride. It's a very quaint little... More

We were at the Tropicante on May 4, 2017 and had a wonderful time. We (party of four) had reserved our chairs with them ahead of time. They met us at the curb and escourted us to the chairs. It's a beautiful place and the staff was absolutely great. George and Reuben (Hippie) took care of everything. The food and... More

Our cruise itinerary was changed at the last minute and we were looking for a good option in Costa Maya. Followed Steve's directions (ignored all other offers as we got off the ship) and found Tropicante via a short cab ride. When we got out of the cab and mentioned Tropicante, staff was right there to guide us to the... More

We visited Tropicante last week and loved it. There were 12 of us and everyone had a great time! You can be in the sun or shade - your choice. Want a wonderful massage? You can get one right there for $30.00 and it was so relaxing. Shopping is available along this little strip of paradise. Try the fish tacos-delicious... More

My wife and I just visited the Tropicante on May 8, 2017 and enjoyed every minute! We were greeted by staff as soon as we got out of the cab who promptly took us to our awaiting shaded loungers. The staff was attentive and always took care of our needs. The shrimp ceviche and shrimp tacos were delicious. If we... More

So this review is for the introverts out there who hate having to try new places, especially in a different country! My wife and I do a lot of cruises and normally when we try a new port, we tend to stick to the excursions offered by the ship and avoid exploring on our own. That is just how we... More

Tropicante is right on the Malecon, the paved walkway along the beach in Mahahual, in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico. The beach is nothing short of spectacular with soft white sand, amazing blue and turquoise water, almost no waves because the 2nd largest coral barrier reef in the world, the Meso American Reef, is an easy swim, or at...

Through recommendations on Cruise Critic we decided to reserve 4 loungers at no cost. We arrived a bit later in the morning, around 11am & they told us we were *late*! But our loungers were waiting for us right in front of the water. Soooo nice. The side tables were all taken, but they found us some and quickly brought... More

We reserved 4 loungers for free right next to the water. Our waiter Reuben, aka Hippy, was absolutely wonderful. The concierge, George, was so helpful and did everything possible to ensure our visit was the best. We all felt so welcomed and relaxed. A must visit for everyone.

A small group of us off the Celebrity Equinox had made reservations for a beach day with Steve at Tropicante. We were met at the bus stop by his staff and walked the two blocks to the beach front. We got our choice of convertible chairs or recliners and side tables. The staff was very attentive to all needs. There... More

Mahahual’s premier ocean front dining experience. A unique cultural and culinary blend of the best of Mexico and the US. Our food, music and ambiance combine the tastes and flavors of both of these two wonderful countries. We are located on the Malecon right in the center of the downtown beachfront. We offer comfortable inside dining as well as tables in the sand, just a few steps from the beautiful clear Caribbean waters. Best food and conversation in town!
