Malibu - the roads in general seemed to be pretty bad (at least to me). I was there August 13-20 but stayed south only. There were big pot holes everywhere, except the new brick paved streets right in town. I followed the "gradder tractor" in to town one morning - but it had rained a lot earlier and it didn't look like they were able to smooth things out very well.

But of course, that was over a week ago and maybe things are improving? eek

It was very bad Saturday since there were a couple of rainy nights last week. Even some of the roads south had a lot of pot holes. They fixed the ones south one day but it rained a few days later. But it was bad up north. We only went as far a the Palpa Bar but heard it was worse farther north. But this was the first time we have been north so maybe it is normal, hope not.

To Palapa Bar - Excellent (which means poor)
Palapa to Capricorn - Poor (bad)
Capricorn to Captain Morgans - Very Bad (take your chances)
Captain Morgans to Journey's End - Poor
Journey's End to Mata Chica - Poor
Mata Chica to all points north - get a snorkel kit for your cart.

a golf cart one day might be fun. Otherwise you can always take Island Ferry to town and back which would save money.

The resort should be able to arrange that for you. If Island Ferry doesn't/can't pick you up on a special run they (Costa Maya) probably have the names of several private operators that can come and get you.
