Playa Mexico has now opened its' doors on the Sac Bajo road. The entrance is just past the old Cristal Mar Condos, so not very far past the turtle farm. In fact, it may be the old Playa Tiburon. Not really sure about that.
There is a small parking lot for your car, golf cart or motorscooter. After you leave the parking area, you are led down this garden path to the giant palapa.
And I do mean giant. This thing is huge.
Although not open when we there, the restaurant area looks like it would be a great place to dine.
Passing through the restaurant area, there are a few steps down to the actual beach. The main bar sits off to your right. If it is your first visit, your first drink is free!
There is a huge volleyball area, should you feel the need to work up a sweat.
Of course, the obligatory swing seats at a bar. Whoever thought up this idea should be shot. (IMHO) They are nothing but knee bangers and not comfortable at all.
The actual beach area lies between two docks. I'm sure these used to host tourist boats from Cancun. I doubt that they see much activity now days. A friend of mine says it is great to walk out to the end and jump off. I'll take his word for it.
Here's a better shot of the beach area. Like most of the beaches on the west side of the island, those facing Cancun, it is covered with seagrass. You can only go a little ways out before you encounter it. If it doesn't bother you to wade or swim with seagrass rubbing against you, go for it. Me, it gives me the creeps to even think about.
There is plenty of room though to put a lounge chair in the water. Another drink just a waiter away!
Kite sailing off a boat in the bay area.
Usually though, the most activity that you will see is the occassional fishing/tourist boat pull up to the dock next door.
