When it’s time for a break from the beach, head to one of the restaurants or shops which line the town of Cancun.
Playa del Carmen
Playa del Carmen is a lovely beach which provides a great atmosphere. You’ll find wonderful food places, so you won’t run out of options when you’re feeling slightly peckish. For relaxation and sunbathing, Playa del Carmen is a great choice, however, it’s perhaps not the best for swimming as the water can often be a bit rough.
Zihuatanejo is located just north of Acapulco in Mexico and is well known for its long stretch of clean sandy beach.
