Playa Caracol

Playa Caracol (Snail Beach) is a beach situated in Cancun, Mexico. The beach is located near Plaza Caracol and the Xcaret dock, close to the heart of the Hotel Zone. Playa Caracol is hindered by the rocks that jut out from the water to mark the beginning of Punta Cancun, where Boulevard Kukulcan turns south.

The beach features shallow clear blue water and the flat bottom, making it an excellent choice for children. If this beach is crowded a short stroll west, to the left, will bring you to a lovely and less crowded beach. There are many water sport activities available on Playa Caracol (particularly, windsurf) as well as rental shops along the beach. Playa Caracol is also the launching point for trips to Contoy Island.
