There’s a great new listing of a one-bedroom house in New Mahahual, which is the main residential area near the Costa Maya cruise ship port. Only 5 minutes from the beach! This house is perfect for a couple or single person as is, however building regulations in this area allows you build an additional two floors if desired. As this house is in New Mahahual, unlike the beachfront houses, it is on the main electrical grid and has town water. Nearby there are many conveniences such as small supermarkets, internet café, DVD rentals, telephone call centre, a few bars and restaurants. Check out my listing no. 1553 for more details and photos.
This week Mahahual has seen different events which has been interesting. A new Italian hotel, “Quinto Sol”, opened it’s restaurant and bar on Monday with the hotel part to be opened shortly. This hotel is at the start of the promenade “malecon” and has some stylish Italian touches.
Tuesday night there was a reggae party complete with street volleyball, huge palm leaves decorating the bar, Aroma, and a raffle organised by Diamonds International. The idea was to raise funds to buy rubbish bins and “don’t litter” signs so that we can keep this area clean and tidy. Apart from being pleasant for residents, all Costa Maya cruise ship passengers pass through here before going to the beach or the Mayan ruins so it’s vital to keep it tidy so they decide to come back and stay for longer in our hotels or beachfront rental homes.
Wednesday was market day – a first in Mahahual! The Mayor’s office “Alcaldia”, made a deal with local farmers to come to Mahahual to sell fresh vegetables, fruit, plants and cheese. Fresh and cheap made it very popluar! They plan to make this a bi-monthly event, the next one to take place on the football pitch in the village so it’ll be more easily accessible to more people. This will hopefully become a weekly event as, apart from a couple of small supermarkets, fresh produce has to be bought on your big shopping trip to Chetumal.
So, there are lots of things happening in the local community and you can choose to take part in any event you like – all are very welcome!
