What's Located Around Westin Resort & Spa Cancun

Quite a few people have decided to spend their holidays in Mexico because of the beautiful beaches that the region is so well known for.

If you are looking forward to the beach more than anything, Westin Resort & Spa Cancun is just what you are looking for. This site is located on the coast, so vacationers can spend as much time as they like under the sun if that will make them happy. The beach on this property is an active site, the perfect choice for beach-goers that want to be one amongst a crowd.

Nearby Beaches

Of course, since Westin Resort & Spa Cancun was built directly on Punta Nizuc, hanging out at the beach is popular with guests staying at this property. 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 vacationers who are willing to venture off site, the following options each offer something a little different. Click the names below to view our detailed article:
