Can anybody out there give me a recomendation as to whether costa maya or tropical paradise is the better place to stay.They are both about the same price, so that is not of concern. I realize that some people may not want to post such a message on this board, and if so we would truly appreciate it if you could e-mail us at .
Also, I've spent a lot of time reading past posts, and I am amazed first of all, at how many there are regarding accomodations, and, more importantly how many of you out there continually respond to these questions.(in particular "Keycocker")
I just want you to know that it really is appreciated.

Thanks so much,
Jon and Kayla

I have only one comment. Costa Maya
is directly on Front Street, which is the
main drag. Personally I like to be away
from traffic. Read some of the comments
at Trip but take them
with a grain of salt. Good luck and have

I have never stayed at either place but having seen both & walked by both many, many times, I would choose tropical paradise because it is by the water & has a restaurant & lounge on the premises. Also, it's location is on the quieter side of the village. But, absolutely every place does have it's own charm & I'm sure Costa Maya does as well. I've stayed at the Sea View twice (now called Barefoot Beach???), in the Sea View Cottage once (very, very rustic) & at the Iguana Reef once (the most luxurious on the island!!!!!!!!) A lot of people wait until they arrive before making their selection, as there are usually rooms available at most places (except maybe the Iguana Reef)

My wife and I spent 12 days at the Tropical Paradise last month and loved it! Nice and quiet and it's run by very nice people.
