“Small and noisy beach”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2013

Sea is wonderful in Cancun, no doubts. And this small beach is not bad. But it is very noisy, full of seaweeds, and you are asked every minute if you want to buy something. Of course it depends on what you are looking for, but beaches in Isla Mujeres, or south to Puerto Morelos, are way better.

“Beach, bungee and locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

This is at kilometer 6 towards the zona hotelera. You can bungee jump, get lunch on the beach or go further down the beach and find a nice little spot to relax surrounded mostly by locals. The water is nice for swimming (not really any waves, which a lot of the Playas out here have plenty of). Easy to snorkel by yourself and see a few fish. People selling mangos or Kebbes on the beach (look up kebbe on google for a picture and description). Nice if you want a local atmosphere more than a tourist type area.
