A popular choice for Cancun locals is Playa Tortugas, or Turtle Beach. It serves seafood and classic Mexican dishes at the main beach restaurant, set under a huge palapa. After lunch at this open-air eatery, visit the nearby bungee tower, or take a swim in the clear, shallow water. I’d recommend this spot on weekdays because the beach crowds swell quickly on weekends.
