Visions of Cancun Mexico : Beaches

The Cancun area offers some spectacular beaches and sea-related attractions. Booking a flight to another destination (in Canada! from Chicago!), I noticed peculiar pricing that made Cancun Mexico one of the cheapest stopovers. Although it was completely out of the way, I seized the opportunity to go see Cancun as a farewell to Mexico before departing this region of the world. I’ve seen photos of the fluffy white sands and the clear transparent blue beaches, and Cancun has lived up to the expectations. What I wasn’t expecting was just how much that area has to offer beyond that, with gigantic pyramids of lost cultures and one of the largest selections of eco-parks and amusement parks I’ve ever seen. What ever type of traveler you might be, whether you just feel like doing nothing at the beach, swimming with sea turtles and dolphins, exploring underground water caves, or touring relics of lost civilizations, Cancun would have something for you.

So the beaches, well, the beaches are as good as it gets. Although I’m definitely not a sun/beach guy, and the beaches were hit with waves of seaweed from the recent storm, everything was gorgeous and relaxing and I really enjoyed the two days roaming the Cancun beaches. It’s definitely overdeveloped in some parts, but if you know where to go or – like me – you’re persistent enough, you’re bound to find your type of beach and escape the crowds.

 

So, to kick it off, here are my Visions of Cancun with my two days exploring different parts of the Cancun beaches – Isla Mujeres, an island approachable by ferry from Cancun, and the hotel beach strip of Cancun town.

To get there make your way to the Cancun town Punta Sam ferry terminal and catch any of the ferries heading out every 15-30min.
