Tropicante: 100% satisfied with this relaxing day at the beach

Recommended Posts

While I haven't been to every attraction in Costa Maya, this was one of the best stops I have ever made on a ship's excursion. We e-mailed Steve and he reserved us some beach chairs on his property. He will send you detailed instructions on how to get to his property. Print the little treasure map and follow them. You won't be steered in the wrong direction. We spent $3 per person and took the open air trolley from the port. It cost $2 per person to return in a cab. $10 round trip for 2 people! His staff is so friendly and accommodating. He told us that many of his guys have been with him for nearly 10 years. There is no cost to hang out at the beach. They do ask that you order food and beverages. One beer, 3 Diet Cokes, 1 bottle of water, order of fresh guacamole, and some amazing batter fried fish tacos cost only $26. They have massages available and can hook you up with any water activities. The owner, Steve, spends time chatting with all of his guests. The beach was small, the water clear, and the palm trees gave much needed shade. I can't say enough great things about Tropicante. Should we return to Costa Maya, we will definitely go back.

We have reservations at the Tropicante for Wednesday but I'm afraid we won't be able to go if this storm forms that the news keeps talking about.

I also have to add a plug for the Tropicante. Steve will take care of you and you should have a great day. We love to go there when the ship stops at Costa Maya. He can also turn you on to some really good Tequila and some Mexican Whiskey. Fantastic day. :cool:

Tropicante is the place to go in Costa Maya..We have been going there for about 7 years and it is great. You will love Steve, the american who owns it and he will spend time talking to everyone. :)

I also loved Tropicante. I made a huge mistake of going to Blue Kay after reading a review on here. Tropicante was definitely better.:cool:

Are there "activities" for teens here? Kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling, volleyball etc?

Tropicante actually has a great website with information! I was able to answer my own question. Lol

Yesterday I made my 3rd attempt to reserve at tropicante for Thanksgiving day. I have not received a response. I contacted through their website, facebook, and I finally emailed directly. Our group was most excited about this stop and tropicante. I wish I knew why they are not responding. With such amazing reviews this surprises me. We are very disappointed and starting to look for other restaurant/beach options. :loudcry:

This place sounds interesting. I will be in Costa Maya in March. Is it appropriate to bring young kids there? (age 6 and 8)
