  • Nice place to spend the day. Not the prettiest beach I've been on, but still very beautiful water. Area is rocky at first in the water so I highly recommend water shoes. Lots of shops lining the road ...  more »
  • We arrived by car, it's super close to bacalar are about 45 minutes or so it's like coming back for Tulum, only you get down a street that I don't know if it's so good, they're not so paved, but obviously I recommend that you go to mahahual , it is beautiful, its only defect is that if there are many people in the morning like 6 in the morning cruise ships arrive, then suddenly it gets crowded, then at night there is no one beautiful. But this particular beach is very nice
