accessible beach for someone staying in town?

We will be in Cancun for only two nights and plan to stay in a downtown hotel. We do have one full day to spend in the area and would just like to relax on a pretty beach where we could maybe order a few drinks and food and have access to shade and chairs? Is that even possible without staying at one of the resorts or will we have to day trip to someplace like Mujeres?

Any advice is appreciated.

Wondering the same thing here. Hopefully someone will answer your question.

To be honest, if you're interested in ordering drinks and food, your best bet may be Isla Mujeres or Playa. Cancun really isn't set up that way. We spent the day at the beach club right by The City and it was nice to have waiter service, food, and bathroom access. But those who visit the public beaches generally pack in their supplies. You will be able to rent umbrellas though.

I know that the Radisson has some sort of service to the beach, but I don't know what it includes.

You will find this map very useful, it shows all the Public entrance Beaches in Cancun.


For a day at the beach I would really recommend going to this beach club: www.playacabana.com it's right next to "Playa Gaviota Azul" behind "The City" Nightclub. You will see it there on the map.
