    Hi everyone

    I just wanted to ask a question about the beach along the hotel zone strip.
    The last 3 times we have stayed at the hotel we have never left the pool area far too much exciting things going on. :lol: But this trip I am hoping to force us away and see what the rest of Cancun has to offer if only for a little while!

    So I was just wondering the long golden sandy beach is that all public or do they have private areas for those hotels only? If so how do you get to the public areas? Are you not even aloud to walk all along it? and where do you ask the cab/bus to drop you off?

    Also wristbands if you have been before do you still get a different colour band to people that haven't?

    Thanks for your help guys, looking forward to being back in June.
    Kate :daisy:

    questions

    Hi
    I believe the public beach is right in the center of town, I have walked past it a few times, "if i have read the sign right" not always sober when walking lol.... but if im not mistaken, its right in walking distance from the clubs coco bongo and all that stuff, as far as the wrist bands, I also believe it is just a few colors now, Premier, RCI and Regular.... Not positive on that one...I dont know if they have the repeaters band anymore or not...im sure some of the others from the board will know these questions a bit better then me....

    None of the beaches "belong" to the hotels they are federal property and the public should be able to walk them unhindered. The problem is there are not that many access points, other than cutting through hotel premises and the security wont let you through without a wristband in many cases.

    From TTR you can walk a few miles towards downtown or about a mile in the other direction. Other access points are Playa Tortugas, Playa Delfines, Playa Marlin and others by the side of Coco Bongo and the Riu Cancun hotel. The beaches on the ocean side (as opposed to the bay side) are not what they were and have been washed away in places so may be difficult to traverse in places.

    I'm pretty sure that everyone gets the same bracelet at TTR regardless of wheteher you're a repeater or not these days.

    Playa Marlin, behind the Kuklacan Plaza is really beautiful. I have pics from July of 2007, but I don't know how to post them in this reply.

    Thanks everyone getting back to me.

    If we manage to leave the hotel during the day this trip we will be sure to try out your suggestions.
