  • Superb beach. Big surprise for its clarity and peace. Plenty of fish and reefs to see. Few tourists at the moment. It's worth the detour!

  • Though somewhat crowded, it exudes a Mexican climate. The beaches are a bit short but the Palm trees and the color of the sea make it the perfect OASIS to relax.

  • Mahahual is still a nice place to relax without so many people, with beautiful beaches and natural. Its reefs still show you a wide variety of fish, snails, lobsters and a without number of easy-to-see espcecies. You can rent a snorkel if you're not wearing one or only being one of the many hammocks on the beach. Dawn views are fantastic and the night of stars is out of this world. It is a place with a wide variety of meals
