Your vacation in the Mexican Caribbean is the perfect opportunity to take the time you may not have had otherwise to learn the sport, or perfect your backhand. Cancun in particular offers so many locations to play tennis that it is hard to avoid passing by a court.

Many of the tennis courts in Cancun are located on resort property, and available for use by guests free of charge during daylight hours – they even offer racquet and ball rentals for little to no cost. Guests will typically find these courts to be outside. Be warned that nighttime use may cost a small fee, which covers the cost of turning on the floodlights so you can play in the dark. If your resort or hotel does charge you for use, expect to pay between $10 and $20(USD), plus $7 to $11(USD) for racquet and ball rental. To avoid not only the nighttime fee, but the heat, reserve your game time before 10 a.m.

A few resorts in Cancun that typically charge for court use offer Tennis Packages, for guests who will be spending the bulk of their time playing tennis. These packages include room fees, as well as reduced rates for the tennis courts. JW Marriott Cancun Resort & Spa and Ritz-Carlton’s Exotic Oasis are two known resorts with tennis packages. Contact your hotel to find out if they offer any such packages.

Another option that many resorts offer is the use of their on-staff tennis pro, who will give lessons and provide coaching. It is also possible to schedule doubles matches with the staff at some locations. These resorts will typically offer the first lesson or coaching session free of charge, but charge anytime thereafter.
