Almaplena is far from the town, is like 11 km in a road that is not in the best conditions, but is not the worst road either. From Mahahual town it takes you like 15 or 20 min in a regular car to get there,...More

Hubby and I had a delicious meal. We had chips, salsa, fresh guacamole, fish tacos, chicken tacos, and beef tacos. We ate on the porch facing the beach. It was a relaxing lunch!

This is a breathtaking beach and everything is very comfortable at the resort. My only issues are that the service wasn't all that great once you were situated and I thought the food was good but not remarkable. However, if you're looking for a secluded,...More
