OK, so the best view "for us" is on the right side of the plane, you can see more of the beach from that side...... there are "hundreds" of resorts scattered along the beach above the airport, EPM is the furthest North all by itself, but unless you have been there before and know just where to look for it you will most likely not be able to identify it.... you are only in range of "viewing" the resorts along the beach for a few minutes anyway.... IMHO.

Most aircraft approach Cancun over the Yucatan so if you sat on the left side and knew where to look you could see where the resort was at but you won't be close enough to see it well.

Upon departure most of the planes take off over the Hotel zone then turn north and fly right over EPM, depending on the path you may get a good look see then.

Best place to sit on the plan is in front so you are the first ones off the horrible uncomfortable sky bus and first through immigration. You will have to wait a bit for your bags anyways but always nice to get off first and not wait for all the idiots who but crap all over the place in the overheads as they take their sweet time.

In the front seat, I believe this is the best view, at least that's what the captain says!

We sat in First Class, left side of the plane and had a great view of EPM when we left Cancun. When we arrived in Cancun we had not stayed at EPM yet so did not no where to look!
