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.

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.
