Time to Go Coastal

If you're heading to one of Cancun's casinos or opting to experience some of the coastal activities but don't want to miss out on some prime beach time, be sure to visit Playa Langosta. Located right on the edge of the Hotel Zone and Mexico itself, this beach isn't a secret, but it is quite a gem.

Family-friendly waterfront fun can be had for all, including swimming, taking in the scenic views, or simply enjoying some sun-filled relaxation on the powdered coral beach. The snack bar is always satisfying, and mobile vendors are known to make regular stops to sell their delicious local creations. Playa Langosta doesn't have restrooms on site, however, so keep that in mind before going coastal.
