It's been over 2 years since our small fishing village suffered
the ravages of Hurricane Dean. We are proud of the amazing challenges that
were met by so many who suffered greatly and recovered so quickly.
The town has a new malecon (boardwalk) on the Sea which is
lovely and has many Mexican restaurants and shops.
It's natural to wonder why the mangroves are grey and some
homes have not been rebuilt. In the meantime, new growth is evident and with
time, the mangroves will recover. Mahahual remains a funky little fishing
village that is quiet on non cruise ship days and lively when the ships come
Our diving centres are all reporting healthy reefs and
aquatic life. We've had great reports from tourists who have loved the
snorkeling and diving here as well as the daily fresh fish served in our
restaurants. That's one of our main attractions - looking at the sea on a
clean beach and eating fresh ceviche and pescado!
This boardwalk on the beach has become a gathering place
for locals and tourists; it's not unusual to see folks bicycling, jogging or
just walking along this lengthy, well - landscaped boardwalk. There is
relaxed sense of well being and promise and lots of restaurants!
If you were here before and loved it, come again and see
our facelift. Travel south and enjoy the relaxed life on Costa Maya.
