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?
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.
I'll be 6 miles up north starting Saturday........ Sounds like it's not gonna be good,I was thinking about renting a golf cart, but from what I'm reading it sounds like I shouldn't waste my money??? And I have lots of OFF packed for off season!!
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.
