This place was awful. (I’m sure due to the wind the previous night) the beach was a mess! Seaweed and plants you had to wade a long way through just to get to clear water. The vendors are RENTLESS and so annoying, making it impossible...More

lovely comfortable loungers and day beds all with shade... sure the food and booze is not as cheap as the places a street back from the beach, but it's still very reasonable and the minimum spend is not much considering the environment. Reading the reviews...More

No water activities at Yaya beach due to new laws and the near by reef but we rented jet skies at Lobster Beach but just to caution the jet skies were old and kept breaking down -would not suggest you rent there

Yaya Beach is the newest beach club in Costa Maya, Mahahual. Our goal is to satisfy our customers by offering an unforgettable beach experience. What we call "Yaya day" will be the best memory of your vacation: it's not a regular beach break - our guests just chill at the beach and let us take care of them in our Yaya way. We speak English, Spanish, Italian and our restaurant and bar combine tropical drinks and cocktails, with local seafood and Mexican style dishes, including lobster. Plus, if you want something more than pure relax, the beach club hosts DOCTOR DIVE, the best and safest dive center in Costa Maya for snorkeling, discover scuba diving and boat trips. Moreover we have free wifi, showers, massages and male/female restrooms. Purified water is used for all Yaya food and beverage.
