Is there a beach (free) like paradise beach in Costa Maya? Don't know if we will do any excursions there even though I'd like to. Just looking for a beach to hang out at.
Costa Maya is a quaint little beach town. There is a pool (salt water) at the little shopping center at the end of the pier. You can't get in the water (at the pier) due to the waves and currents...but they do have lounge chairs in the sand around the pool with some wonderful drinks!!
You can take a bus into "town" for $3 per person each way. We stayed at the pool, but our table mates took the bus into town and described it as a neat little beach town. I think they even said the main street was sand. But there are beaches there with little shops and bars/restaurants.
