Cancun Mexico Beach Updates

submitted by Marcia Ring - Bursch Travel Group Department

FYI -Update is about the beaches in Cancun NOT the Riviera Maya area.

I just visited Cancun and stayed at the Marriott Casamagna. The beach appeared beautiful (first 2 pictures). When I got closer I discovered the 8 foot drop off from the beach to the water. This drop off has happened just since Jan 1 of this year. So lots of sand has been lost. The hotel people said Cancun is again working on fixing the problem. Now they are going to work on some "piping” to control the waves.

The beach was still very nice â€" but a little difficult to walk on the beach! I didn't walk the whole beach in Cancun â€" but it appeared that the beach in front of every hotel had the same situation.
