#2 of 13 in Beaches in Cancun
Immerse yourself in the busy beach at Playa Tortugas, a sandy strip lined with cafes, restaurants, and bars. Relax with the lively crowds, renting an umbrella and deck chair to cool down after a roast in the sun. Take a swim or try out something more adventurous, such as jet skiing, with a wealth of rental stores located along the beach. When the mood strikes you, wander over to one of the lively beach bars to listen to dance music and enjoy an ice cold beverage.

Where to stay in Cancun

Cancun's accommodations cater to everyone from spring-break partygoers to distinguished luxury seekers. By far the most densely developed area for hotels is the boomerang-shaped Punta Nizuc-Cancun and the connecting Bulevar Kukulcan, projecting out into the sea and offering prime beach access. Among the stylish resorts, you can find expansive party hostels offering large swimming pools. If you'd like a more independent Cancun vacation, consider staying at one of the private rentals scattered along the coast.
