Quite a few travelers make plans to vacation in Mexico simply because they want to experience the breath-taking beaches that the region is known for.
If you or your group are big beach fans, Flamingo Cancun Resort & Plaza is the perfect locale for you. This lodging is located along the water, so guests can spend as much time as they like soaking up the sun if they want. This beach is a well-visited attraction, which is great for tourists who like to be one amongst a crowd.
Naturally, since Flamingo Cancun Resort & Plaza is located directly on Playa Chacmool, hanging out at the beach is popular with guests staying here. Watersports and aquatic activities may not be popular on some of the island's other beaches, but great conditions at the Playa Chacmool make them a big hit with beachgoers. There are even places on the beach where you can rent snorkeling gear and other equipment watersports.
