This is one of the most frequented beaches in Cancun. Right behind plaza Forum and Coco Bongo, it's a popular beach to visit, specially during spring break. The waves aren't normally that strong and it's great for playing volleyball, soccer, or even throwing a football....More

Hello, We are coming to Cancun in January 2017 (yeah!) and staying in a condo in Playa Blanca, along Carr. A Punta Sam. What is the beach like there? Will it be good for sunning and swimming. Can you recommend any restaurants nearby. What is transportation like to the Hotel Zone? Thanks in advance for any info. Marc

Coming to Cancun during Spring Break in 2017. I'll be traveling with my daughters ages 14 and 17. Looking for someplace that's not real crazy with College Kids. Any suggestions would be great.
