Mahahual

4.2
Beaches · Scuba & Snorkeling · Marinas
A growingly popular destination on Mexico's Caribbean coast, for most of its history Mahahual remained a tiny fishing village well off the beaten path. Still small and relatively underdeveloped, the beachfront settlement offers calm waters ideal for snorkeling and diving. Holidays in Mahahual draw mostly American and Canadian cruise-ship tourists, who keep the local tourism sector alive and kicking. When foreign visitors pile into the little town, you can retreat to the outskirts, where you can enjoy an uncrowded beach with a book and a cold drink. Our Mexico attractions planning website combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
