Cancun Beach Mood

Once you’ve lived in Cancun for a while you get kind of jaded about going to the beach.

Cancun has more than 14 miles of sandy coastline so picking a beach is actually harder than you might think. Even now, after Hurricane Wilma, with half of Cancun’s beach areas wrecked, deciding which beach to visit is still something we have to debate. Before Wilma hit there were about 7 different stretches of beach in Cancun that we enjoyed going to. Now we’re down to only 4. Four is enough to make the decision hard.

So how do we decide which beach to go to? It depends on a lot of things. How much time do we have for beach that day? Some beaches are quicker to get to than others. What time of day is it when we leave the house? Some beaches are shadowed by tall hotels late in the day. What time of year is it? In summer we want beaches with shade, but in winter we want sunny beaches. How much wave action do we want? The northside beaches have smaller waves than the eastside beaches do. What day of the week is it? On Sundays the easy-access beaches are packed with locals.

But mostly it comes down to mood. Different moods dictate different beaches. Today’s mood was “I’d love to go to the beach but I’m too lazy to decide which one”. Sometimes too many choices is a bad thing.

    Thanks Vidman, HEHEHE, I sure don’t miss the snow. I did my time though, I grew up in New Hamphire in a big house heated by wood, my folks couldn’t afford to heat the whole thing so most rooms were cold all winter.

    And I don’t know if it makes you feel any better but it’s actually rainy and icky out today. We’ve had a big ugly cloud over Cancun for 24 hours and it’s been raining on and off. It’s still warm enough to be barefoot though…
