Activities > Mahahual Water Activities

When the seclusion that Mayan Beach Garden has to offer is not enough, and you like water sports, take a drive into Mahahual and visit any of the small establishments booking tours, or leasing jet skis. If you are coming from the pier, you can either take a shuttle, or a taxi into Mahahual. As you walk from the pier, you will pass Tequila Beach (a big orange building) and then the town of Mahahual is not too much further down the malecon, or pedestrian walk-way. If you are driving a car, you won't be able to park or drive on the beach because of the Malecon. You can park on one of the back streets, especially around the soccar field. If you see a sign with an E and a circle with a line through it, that means no parking. Please watch for the one way roads.

Costa Maya from air
This is such a great shot of the Costa Maya. The Caribbean is famous for its incredible blue water and you can see for yourself (if you go parasailing) that it is truly breath taking. This same beachfront and turquoise water extends to Mayan Beach Garden, 20 km north of Mahajual / Mahahual / Majahual.
