We were at first concerned about this excursion, because the reviews were not that great. However, once we found out that Mahahual beach was not going to be the destination, we went ahead and booked the excursion. Mahahual beach was closed for construction, so maybe it will improve. Another review had mentioned how fancy and great Uverro beach was, and this is where we were taken.
First, we enjoyed the Costa Maya port itself: great shops and beautiful pool in the middle of it! It was like something out of a movie! Therefore, we were glad that we chose a later excursion time (11am), because it gave us a chance to enjoy a nice breakfast on the ship, and then shop and swim in the beautiful pool!
When it came time for our excursion, we were led to some great travel buses, and taken to the beach. The bus ride was about 20 minutes long, or so, but it was very enjoyable: air conditioned, nice remote city to view, comfortable.
When we arrived at the beach, we were in awe: absolutely beautiful, resort type beach. The sand was white powdery, the ocean blue/green, huge sitting/ eating area, shower to rinse off, etc. We absolutely loved every second spent on that beach.
There was a wooden bridge, which led to a dock in the middle of the ocean. There was a zipline, safely secured, in which you could zipline across and then into the ocean (you just have to be able to swim back to the dock). My 15 year old daughter, and husband, loved that. My 9 year old son enjoyed swimming in the beautiful ocean and making sand castles.
The lunch was delicious, and the drinks were inexpensive. Overall, we had an awesome time.
We had done this before and had a long bus ride to a beach club at Uverro Beach. This time we were taken on a short tram ride to Mahahual. It wasn't as fancy as the place at Uverro, but men were cleaning up the seaweed to neaten up the beach, there were plenty of chairs, there were clean attended restrooms, food for sale, drinks were already included. The waiters were very attentive to see to everyone's needs. There were some vendors set up on the board walk to sell souvenirs. The water was very rough the day we were there, but a little snorkeling could be done in spite of the wave action. Our tickets included a taxi ride back, and there was no waiting. We did some shopping with the vendors at the port, and were very thankful for the neat little train/tram ride on the dock to & from the ship.

Not what it is advertised as
There is no "club". It is a bar on the beach. The beach is not a beach. Chairs right up to the rocky edge. No sandy beach to walk on. The trash is terrible strung out all along. I stepped on a bic style razor. Thank goodness it was the handle I stepped on first and not the blade head. There was so much trash and debris floating in the water that you had to wade through to get to areas to snorkel. Not kid friendly at all. Pass on this one!
This was a 20 min ride from port. Nice beach although not very big. With our group, the beach was crowded. Sun was strong and the shady locations were taken over quickly. We were given a tag to give the cab driver when ready to return to ship so you could leave whenever you wanted. Drinks were good. Water was clean and warm. Restrooms in restaurant across street. No changing facilities..
