Beach excursion in Cozumel and excursion in Costa Maya for family of 3 with 11 yr old

Recommended Posts


This is our first cruise...Navigator of the Seas.....we are so excited...I know there are questions about the beach resorts for day trips for Cozumel...we have 11 year old....best for him to be around kids....and all inclusive....so Nachi, Mr. Sanchos....or????

Also looking for advice for Costa Maya....maybe dolphin adventure???

Thanks for all words of wisdom

We've been to Playa Mia 3 times (first time my kids were 15, 11, 8 and 3).  It is great for the included aqua park plus there are very nice kiddie pirate themed splash pools and larger waterslides where my then 3 yo could even go down.  Also they have very basic and easy snorkeling there (we bring our gear).  The downside is the food.  It is buffet and I am not crazy about it but if you go to the buffet early and it would be fine.  While the RC excursion goes there, I buy discounted tickets online and take a taxi over.  Our last time there they wanted full payment for the first time which I wasn't crazy about.  We did it and it wasn't a problem.  

We don't have an upcoming cruise to Cozumel but if I did I would probably try Mr. Sanchos mostly due to the food.  I like the sound of Nachi for adults but looks like little to do for the kids.

We were just in Costa Maya last week. I highly recommend Maya Chan Beach for a beach day ($55 for adults; $49 for ages 8-17; $39 for ages 4-7; $19 for 0-3 years). The cost includes transportation to and from the port, drinks, lunch, paddleboards, kayaks, floats, and beach toys for kids to play with. It was a great day!
