Nearby Beaches

Playa Marlin

Naturally, since Aloft Cancun is located right 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. For vacationers who want to venture farther away, the following options each offer something a little different. Clicking on each link below allows you to view our detailed article:
