Although it’s not located in the Cancun Hotel Zone, North Beach is close enough and amazing enough that I had to include it in this list. North Beach (or “Playa Norte”) sits on the northern end of Isla Mujeres, a small island just off the coast of Cancun. Here you’ll find several beach bars along with the best water in the region—no rocks and no waves, just clear, shallow water. It’s also one of the only spots where you can see the sun set over the ocean.
