We had a wonderful shore excursion at La Bamba during a port call in Costa Maya last week (February, 2020) during the annual Bare Necessities "Big Nude Boat" nude cruise. Carnival Legend and Bare Necessities arranged for a buy-out of La Bamba for our visit, giving us a luxurious clothes-free day in this lovely destination. After a 20-minute motorcoach ride from the port, 300 of us arrived at La Bamba in seven coaches and were greeted by their superb, friendly and efficient staff. All of us had our choice of shade or sun on the hundreds of loungers scattered around the property, and we all enjoyed soaking, swimming and wading in the warm, clear water along the long beachfront. The sandy, hard-packed and rock-free beach was an inviting spot to spend the day, which many of us did. Lunch was included and was excellent. Delicious grilled chicken, Mexican favorites and vegetarian options satisfied everyone, and there were no lines for food thanks to the efficient layout and buffet service. Drinks from the numerous large bars were also included, and our attentive and friendly bar waiters were ever-present to keep us supplied with local beers, rum and vodka drinks and fresh-made Margaritas. The two "container" swimming pools were filled with fresh, warm, clear water for soaking, conversation or rinsing off from the ocean. We also had beach volleyball, pool and beach games, and great music from the DJ during our lovely six hours at La Bamba. We can't say enough good things about the La Bamba and the staff. Everything was excellent. The property is large, spotlessly clean, welcoming, sunny, and roomy. The staff is outstanding and very, very attentive. Having cruised over 350 nights across 30 years and 39 cruises, this was one of the best port of call destinations ever, and especially so for our group from the nude cruise. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, we will return every time we come to Costa Maya!
