Absolutely ! I am a single lady traveller, and felt very safe doing this on my own with info from this site. Follow signs for taxis, I highly reccomend the shuttle down the dock, it is way longer than it looks, especially on the way back !! LOL The rates are set, they have vans, I just looked for a smaller van almost full, I think it was $5 pp, and offered the driver an extra $5 to leave right away...sitting in a hot van waiting for it to leave isn't fun. I walked from the taxi stand onto the beach and looked for the most comfortable chairs, it was $10 for the day and the first beer was included....I ate at my chair, it really is a small town and beach easy to navigate. When it was time for a bathroom break, I was escorted in a very polite manner to a very near CLEAN restroom. If you have been in Mexico before and know to politely say no and ignore, you will have no problem. I had a great day, very happy with my decision to get out of Costa Maya, would stop there again if it was on my itinerary. Loved the local small town.
