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.
