my fiancee and i are considering going to mata chica for our honeymoon. we have some friends who went to victoria house and said the beach near there is in pretty bad shape. could anyone tell me about the beach near mata chica? (i like going on long beach walks!)
also, how secluded is the resort? we hope to feel like we are in the middle of nowhere as much as possible!
any other opinions/advice welcome...

2 resorts past Portofino,Costa Maya Resort(which used to be Avalon/Casa Caribe)-a further 2 and a half miles north is a brand new resort called Salamander which only opened last week.

I can't imagine what your friends meant by the beach being in pretty bad shape. Victoria House maintains their beach very well.

Perhaps your friends are just used to beaches like those found in Cancun and Playa del Carmen? If so, you should not expect beaches like that either up at Mata Chica.
A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest?

I've seen some junky looking beach trash to either side of the VH beach to be honest. Not AT the resort but close by...

i think that is what they meant- that the beach AT the resort was very nice, but not so nearby.
