In Costa maya take a shuttle ride to downtown for 3:00 $ per person. Once there find a nice spot on the beach.
Beach is free but have to pay for chairs and umbrellas rentals.
We did a massage on the beach for $10:00.
Ordered few beers and snacks.
Rented a waverunner $30:00 for half hour.
This beats all ship excursion. Just enjoy sun/sand/waves. And can be done by yourself.
The water was terquois blue. Amazing, never seen anything like it.
