  • To get to Mahahual, it is ideal to fly to Chetumal, and from there, either take a bus or leave from the ADO terminal, or rent a car at the same airport. (eye that there is very little availability and in high season they are exhausted) Mahahual has the charm of a small town with a small tourist development (there are no chain hotels or resorts) The main street is pedestrian and goes parallel to the beach. There are quite a few hotels, for every budget. Both conventional and water bikes can be rented. Very close to the shore is the reef, where you can snorkel and see turtles and varied species of fish. There is a lot of tranquility and security.
