Beaches in Cancun Mexico
In Cancun as in all Mexico, the beaches are public property and can not be owned by individuals or companies. So there are no beaches belonging to only the guests of one hotel. Once you stand on the beach, you can walk in any direction for as long as you like. As Cancun's Zona Hotelera is actually an island, you will eventually return to where you started walking.
