Playa Tortugas, Cancun

(2.9/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Playa Tortugas and other Cancun attractions using our handy Cancun tour planner.
