All the beaches in Mexico are considered as public, everybody can freely walk along the beach strips of the Mexican territory. However most of the hotels located on the beach would not allow you to use their facilities if you are not guest of them or unless you do some comsumption at their restaurants or bars.
In Cancun there are several public beaches and beach clubs where tourists staying at downtown hotels or local people can go to take a sunbath, swim and relax.
Here is a list of the most popular public beaches:
  • Playa Las Perlas

  • Playa Tortugas
  • Playa Caracol
  • Playa Chac Mool
  • Playa Ballenas
