What's Near Ritz-Carlton Cancun

The beaches in Mexico are the most alluring attractions that the area has to offer.

Therefore, most guests are delighted that Ritz-Carlton Cancun is located on the water, so you won't need to travel far to see what makes the area so special. This beach boasts a wonderful balance when it comes to crowd size; it's not far off from attractions in Cancun, but nurtures an atmosphere that isn't too over-populated.

Nearby Beaches

Obviously, since Ritz-Carlton Cancun is located on Playa Ballenas, hanging out at the beach 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. For guests who want some variety, the following options each offer something a little different. Click on the names below to read our detailed article:
