It Helps to be Crazy
The Story of Maya Chan Beach
“You don’t want that piece of property…”
That property had been thoroughly decimated by a category 5 monster named Hurricane Dean. It was now five months later, January 2008, and that little stretch of beach still had nothing to offer but sea grass and sand. There were no palm trees, no hammocks, no solid structure that we knew of. It had no functioning plumbing system. There was no electricity. Everywhere we looked was destruction and impossibilities. Yet that property spoke to us. And we listened with passionate attention. Flash forward nine years and Maya Chan Beach is the number one thing to do in the state of Quintana Roo. With well over 1,000 five-star reviews, it’s also the number 14th attraction on the entire Yucatán peninsula. We developed a cruise ship day resort and have had the great pleasure of sharing our piece of paradise with almost 100,000 new friends. Actually, almost 100,000 new family members. We have visited many of them stateside and cruised with a few more. Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, even celebrations of life have been shared with us on our Little Mayan Beach. To embark on such a journey took more intestinal fortitude than we anticipated, but It Helps to be Crazy.
