Sometimes picking accommodations near the right beach will ensure that you can take full advantage of the beautiful sand and water here. Visitors love that this property is right on the water and sand, so you won't need to go very far to see one of the most naturally beautiful features of the area. Beware that there are a lot of people who frequent this popular spot in Cancun, setting up a lively atmosphere for people-watching and sun-bathing; keep in mind, though, it is known to get full with tourists very quickly.

The waters off of the Playa Ballenas are sometimes rough, which make them less than ideal for swimming but beachgoers can enjoy outdoor activities like parasailing, tubing, and volleyball. Of course, more leisurely pursuits such as sunbathing are also encouraged and can be a great way to rest up between adventures.
