What's Near Westin Resort & Spa Cancun

The delightful beaches in Mexico are touted as the most alluring attractions in the region.

If all you can think about is the beach, Westin Resort & Spa Cancun has what you need. This property is set along the shore, so vacationers can spend as much time as they like in the sun if they want. Every year, crowds of guests visit this popular area of Cancun, setting up a lively atmosphere for people-watching and sun-bathing; however, this means it can get very congested with people.

Nearby Beaches

Of course, since Westin Resort & Spa Cancun is located on Punta Nizuc, hanging out at the beach is one of the main attractions here. Punta Nizuc is perhaps the least popular of all the beaches in Cancun, but vacationers who don't know better and overlook this beach are missing out. The underwater view is one of the best in the area, so snorkeling and diving is a favorite pastime. For guests who are willing to venture off site, its not difficult to find another beach to experience. Click on the following names to view our detailed article:
