    What time of day are you landing? In general the planes land going east (into the wind) during the day in which case your approach is over the jungle and you won't even see the ocean at all while you are landing.

    Early in the morning, at dawn, and sometimes at night, and sometimes when the weather is weird the planes land go west, in which case the approach is from the ocean. In that case you are likely to see more on the right side of the plane, assuming they circle in clockwise.

    Nine times out of ten than I've landed in Cancun we've landed going east with jungle views on approach.

    EVERY trip to cancun I sit on the left side, and I have always had a great view. Especially when leaving for home, last few times they flew the entire length of the hotel zone, it was simply amazing!

    The first time we went to Cancun, I thought we were going to crash into a jungle. I saw nothing, then a bunch of trees getting closer and closer.....and then, finally, the runway....

    Ive been 3 times twice just got jungle views but the most recent time we was on the left side of the plane and got an awesome we sort of flew in over isle majures then then you could see down hotel zone mainly down the start where temptations , then came inland abit and flew over what looked like a very poor area where it was all white dirt roads and basic housing some didnt appear to have real roofs. Altogether interesting fly in .

    On the way there, we always seem to fly over the jungle - no view of the Hotel Zone. But, 9/10 times on the way home, the pilot will do a fly by the Hotel Zone. So, at least on the way home, as you sit facing forward, sit on the left side.
