Although we weren’t the first people to chart the Mexican toen of Costa Maya, we made a few discoveries of our own. We spent a nice, relaxing day scoring the perfect spot on the beach in the neighbouring settlement of Majahual, finding the greatest place for lunch, and hunting for the best bargains in the little tourist village by the port.
Arriving in Costa Maya at the break of day.
Admiring some hand-crafted souvenirs in the tourist village.
Deciding to leave the comfort of the swimming pool and deck chairs behind…
Venturing into unknown territory (Majahual!)
The atmosphere on the seafront promenade is unbelievable!
So we found the perfect spot!
And we ordered the perfect Caribbean cocktail.
Time for a dip!
Looking for the best place to grab a light bite… or not that light.
We found the best one, with a great view to boot.
And the food was incredible!
Guilty attempts to work off the ‘light’ lunch.
Waving goodbye to the stunning beach.
Back into the tourist village for a spot of further exploration.
So there you go. Hopefully I’ve proved that even a relaxing day on the beach can comprise of a string of discoveries and mini adventures. Exploring a new place (and in this case, a new country!) is always an exciting experience for me – the overall atmosphere, the colours, the smells, the people, the animals, the food and the emotions the place evokes all stay with me long after I’ve left.
