  • I find it practically impossible to find a beach that is not worth in this area, the sand looks like talc, it is very quiet, it has very little hours, excellent place to relax

  • You want to go to enjoy a public beach in Cancun be sure to visit Playa Ballenas which is the entrance to the public between 2 large hotel chains The Vine and Hard Rock. If you arrive early you have the opportunity to park very close to the access and has bathrooms and shovels. The sea in this area has many currents that do not manage to distinguish these with the naked eye so it is not recommended for small boys or people who do not know how to swim well.
