No....you don't need a beach break in costa maya but here's the best if you want to go that way. This break is reserved through Island Marketing. Beers are cheap ($2) everywhere but if you want an uncrowded beach with reserved lounge chair......unlimited drinks, and a great mex lunch of several courses...this is the place. Wiaters are constantly circling...asking for you order...an occasional buck or 2 keeps everyone happy! There is an outstanding massage therapist available for 40 bucks an hour at this club.....or stroll up the beach and get a great massage by locals for 10/half hour!!!!!! Outstanding. The cost is $2 bucks for taxi...each way per person and 40 bucks for beach club. Local peddlers are right around an hungry...my hunny got a beautiful torquoise bracelet fo $25. Yes...real stones and silver!!!
