Costa Maya

Costa Maya is located in sunny Mexico, very close to the Belize border.  It offers the visitor many activities to choose from, including exploring Mayan ruins, swimming with dolphins, and zip lining. It boasts a very tourist friendly port, with plenty of food, shops, and even a public swimming pool, complete with sand and lounge chairs.


The port area truly offers so much that many are tempted to merely explore there, or lounge in a chair near the water.  However, with the close proximity to excellent beaches, the call of the sea is hard to resist.

Yaya Beach is the newest beach club in Costa Maya... and it is also the absolute BEST! 

With plenty of seating and tropical palapas for shade, this is really a beautiful place to relax and enjoy the calm, clear waters that gently lap across the sand.  If ultimate relaxation sounds like just the thing, then even lounge on a beachside bed.


If adventure is calling, then take out a kayak, or try a bit of snorkeling.  Hosted by the beach club you will also find Doctor Dive Costa Maya, the safest dive shop in Costa Maya, offering snorkeling, scuba diving, and even boat trips.


And if you work up a hunger or thirst, never fear, because Yaya Beach offers a wonderful restaurant and bar!  Your server will even bring your food and drink order right to your chair on the beach!  The Mexican Combo, my personal favorite, is an appetizing array of Mexican favorites, all prepared with fresh ingredients.  You may view the complete bar and restaurant menu HERE.

While you are a guest at Yaya Beach, you can also take advantage of the free Wifi, as well as the shower and restroom facilities.  This is absolutely the best place to visit while in Costa Maya!


Yaya Beach makes it even easier for their guests by offering several packages to enhance your visit.  Packages can include a nacho snack, open bar, and a lounge chair to Mexican and Fresh Fish combos.  This is definitely the best fresh salsa that I have ever had!  Also, do not leave without trying a margarita... or several.  

The beach club is not only a tropical oasis, but it is also within very close proximity to the cruise ship pier.  It is actually only a $2 taxi ride!  Now tell me, who can resist a visit?
