Often, picking a hotel within walking distance of a good beach can guarantee your family has a fun, fulfilling trip.
If all you can think about is the beach, Paradisus Cancun Resort is just what you are looking for. This site is located along the shore, so guests can spend their whole trip soaking up the sun if that will make them happy. Located near many of Cancun's hot spots, but outside of the congested areas, this location provides a happy medium; guests will be able to have genuine fun in the sun. The beach by this location is not very crowded compared with other beaches in the region.
Of course, since Paradisus Cancun Resort is located on Playa Ballenas, laying out in the sun is one of the main attractions here. 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.
