The inviting beaches in Mexico are boasted as some of the best attractions that the area has to offer. If you are a big beach fan, Aloft Cancun is set in the perfect location for you. This property is situated on the water, so tourists can spend all of their time soaking up the sun if they so desire.
Of course, since Aloft Cancun was built directly on Playa Marlin, hanging out at the beach is a popular pastime here. Because the waters around the Playa Marlin beach tend to be rough, swimming can be difficult and even dangerous off these shores. But the same conditions that make it dangerous for swimmers make it ideal for watersports, particulary sail boarding and parasailing.
