Playa Langosta

Family-Friendly Favorite

Cancun may have a reputation as a major party zone, but a few hidden gems within the area attest to the resort city’s ever-increasing family-friendly appeal.

Playa Langosta, located near Boulevard Kukulcan and the Casa Maya Hotel, is one such place, and it draws parents and kids who can’t get enough of the clear, shallow waters.

Beat the Crowds

That Playa Langosta is a family hotspot is no secret to locals. They’ve been enjoying fun, sunny afternoons at this sandy stretch for a long time.

Be warned that on weekends, the area gets quite busy. If you’re looking to stretch out and have a relaxing picnic while the kids build sand castles, it might be best to take your excursion to this beach during the week.

Activities

Aside from water-based fun, there are a few things for families to do near the beach. There’s a playground complete with swings and a mini-obstacle course, plus a colorful Cancun sign ideal for family snapshots. The park directly behind the beach (across Boulevard Kukulcan) is a great spot to stretch your legs and view interesting sculptures and monuments.

A boardwalk meanders through nearby Jardin del Arte, a sliver of a park between Boulevard Kukulcan and the lagoon. Little white pavilions dot the boardwalk and provide some shade.
