Often, finding a hotel located near a nice beach can make your trip even more exciting.
Many guests are excited to learn that Hotel La Tortuga is right on the water and sand, so you won't have to go far to have an amazing view of the water. No matter the time of year, there are crowds of people who frequent this popular spot in Cancun and the Mexican Caribbean, setting up an undoubtedly fun social scene; keep in mind, though, it gets full with tourists very quickly.
Needless to say, since Hotel La Tortuga was built directly on Half Moon Bay Beach, relaxing at the water's edge is a popular pastime at this property. A small protected inlet that keeps waters calm and supports a rich underwater marine habitat, Half Moon Bay Beach is a great spot for snorkeling, but it is quiet and relaxing enough that you can spend a day relaxing on the shore as well.
