The gorgeous beaches in Mexico are undoubtedly some of the most relaxing (or active!) spots in the region.
If you are looking forward to the beach more than anything, Ritz-Carlton Cancun is the right spot for you. This site is situated on the coast, so vacationers can spend all of their time soaking up the sun if they so desire. This beach boasts a nice balance as far as crowds; it is situated not too far from the landmarks in Cancun, and still presents a feeling that is not too over-populated.
Obviously, since Ritz-Carlton Cancun is located directly on Playa Ballenas, relaxing at the water's edge is one of the main attractions at this property. 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 vacationers who want to venture farther away, its not difficult to find another beach to experience. Click on the names below to see more details:
