How was the water? Was it still as bad as Shirleycruiselover mentioned?
We just returned from our cruise where we spent a delightful day in Costa Maya at Maya Luna.
We found the water to be beautiful and the beach pristine. As has been mentioned before on the board, there is seagrass growing in the ocean directly in front of Maya Luna, but the water is very clean.
Carolien, the owner, and her staff were very gracious. We took a quick boat ride out to the reef ($25/per person) and did some snorkeling. The reef is stunning. Our guide, Yolanda, took extra care with our 11 year old daughter and basically gave her a private snorkelling lesson while the other 6 in our boat explored the reef closeby.
The food and drinks at Maya Luna were AMAZING. We couldn't believe when the bill came and for an entire day of gigantic Mexican beers, margaritas, fajitas, ceviche, guacamole and much more (yes we ate and drank LOTS), plus the use of the gorgeous beach and clean restrooms and shower was only around $50 U.S. (for 3 of us.)
We will definitely return to Maya Luna. Three BIG thumbs up from 3 VERY picky travelers!
