I did enjoy my fajitas at this place which has seating right on the beach with umbrella's for shade and I have to say while it was great food and the Wi-Fi was free, but not great, it was a bit expensive. This is to be expected in the state of Quintana Roo, which is almost all tourism. The quality... More

One of our Liberty of the Seas stops was in Costa Maya...we had no clue where to go when we went ashore. A local suggested the Green Iguana so we figured...why not? It was a $2 charge per person to take a shuttle which would let you off anywhere along the strip. Staff working for various restaurants tried to encourage... More

The service is wonderful and they work hard to keep you happy. The drinks were non stop and the FRESH ceviche was wonderful. Even more amazing, the staff remembered us on... More

Costa Maya was the 1st stop on our sailing on the Norwegian Star and we just wanted to relax and that's what we got. We took the $2 cab from the dock to Mahahual and Carlos flagged us down as we were strolling the beach. He showed us some very fresh looking fish, had us sit at a table at... More

Christmas day dinner- fresh fish on the beach for 6! The service is excellent, atmosphere is divine- sitting in the sand under a Palapa 25 ft from the turquoise water @ the beach! You choose the 'live' fish they bring to you & while your meal is being prepared you can relax & soak in the incredible scenery or barter... More

My family went here last week of February 2012. Costa Maya was a Port of call, on our cruise. We found Green Iguana and were very pleased with the time we spent there. The massages were excellent and priced right. Food was good, and service was prompt. Ernesto, thank you for the free picture of my girls with the mascot... More

We were in town on a cruise, RCCL, Jewel of the Seas. A large group of us (14) ended up here. It was deemed by all as "the best day ever". Ernesto and Mikey took amazing care of us. There is a beach rigth there where we all hung in the water. Ernesto and staff delivered drinks, great margarita's and... More
