    The beach was fantastic. I would give the sand SIX stars. The limestone and shell sand is a fine powder, which does NOT get hot even on a blisteringly hot day. It is AMAZING. The water goes from a deep blue to aqua, then turquoise all the way to white foam. The whole family spent hours collecting shells, walking for miles, and body surfing. It is in my top 10 beaches in the world, and near the top.

    Playa Delfines in Cancun's Zona Hotelera is the only place that I've seen surfers on the mainland. The waves aren't huge, but between July-November (hurricane season), they're big enough to enjoy the surf. The Quintana Roo Surf Association runs a booth (ok, a shack) on the beach, where they rent surf boards and offer classes too. They may be a great resource for other good surfing beaches in the area. Have fun!

    The best public beach in Cancun is a doozy: it slopes down dramatically from the road to a huge long stretch by the water, almost a kilometer in length without any hotels blocking the view. It's a big locals' scene on weekends, with lots of families hanging out. There are usually food vendors up at the road level, and some umbrellas for rent by the water. The only catch is that the waves here can be a little rough and the currents strong, so it's not always great for swimming.

    Aqua blue waters and right on the strip. A good place for beers and a relaxing swim.

Description

Do Cancun the way it was meant to be done--on a long, impossibly wide sandy beach, the view unmarred by hotels, the water incredibly blue. Let your children loose to fly kites on the terrace specifically designed for that purpose. Head up to the road to grab a snack from one of the local food vendors, or rent an umbrella if you need a bit of extra shade from the tropical sun. Surfboards are ... read more
available for rent, and if you get here during hurricane season (July-November), the waves are just about perfect.
