Relax at Mahahual Beach, and experience the laid-back atmosphere of the small fishing village. Rarely crowded, except for a few days each month when the cruise ships arrive, the beach makes for a great place to rest and have fun on the Caribbean coast. The proximity of the barrier reef ensures excellent snorkeling, scuba diving, kayak trips, and fishing. Enjoy the view as you lounge on the sand, sunbathe, or swim in the vibrant turquoise waters.

  • This place has become my favorite Beach! Literal is a natural pool, water is super quiet and crystal clear, I felt in the movie Blue Lagoon. It is the perfect place to relax and forget everything. The only "downside" is that there are not many food options. But... who cares? It is the perfect place to forget the city and enjoy the beauty of the Mexican Caribbean ❤️

  • A long beautiful beach, with opportunities for Sun beds. The beach is lined with restaurants, offering beds "free" opposed to deals with food and drink in the. Took a type of open Shuttle bus with roofs of straw from the port area when we added with Seaside MSC. It cost $3 and it was easily worth. Back to the ship had to be taxi, $2/person/Beach Street is lined with shops.

  • He had not seen a beach so beautiful like this. To get it is a little complicated but it is worth. I Mty to Chetumal bole making scale in Cdmx there are no direct flights and in the afternoon there is no transportation of Chetumal to mahahual by what opted to take the flight with the largest scale hours in cdmx to have time to walk a little and reaches to Chetumal only dormi r. being in Chetumal must go to "old bus terminal" and there there are splinters that lead to mahahual, the output is at 10:30 am, you can leave this same splinter in Bacalar. The splinter leaves you right in the center of Mahahual and from there you can order a taxi to your hotel, I stay you at the silver Moon hotel which I would recommend 100%. It is a really cheap, take jn snorkel tour, which cost $400 pesos for 2persons and was super nice. Rent a pair of paddle boards for $600 pesos for 3 hours. The food is also quite cheap. Definitely a destination that you should switch before urbanization more.
