What's Near Ritz-Carlton Cancun

The sparkling beaches in Mexico are touted as the most alluring attractions in this part of the world.

If you are a big beach fan, Ritz-Carlton Cancun is set in the perfect location for you. This property is located on the coast, so vacationers can spend all day every day in the sun if that will make them happy.

Nearby Beaches

Of course, since Ritz-Carlton Cancun sits directly on Playa Ballenas, relaxing at the water's edge is a popular pastime 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 are willing to venture off site, there are some additional beaches worth investigating. Click on the following names to see more details:
