As part of a Trip to Cancun , we spent some time at this Beach langosta. The difference to other beaches is that the water is here shallow, maybe too shallow.

It appears this is the preferred ferry ride to the Dolphin Discovery on ISLA MUJERES. This is NOT ULTRAMAR. We got there for the 9am departure to be greeted by a lady who was shouting at folks as they approached the+pier. We were shuffled into a small area to line up, and were strictly told only one person from the family to enter the line. The rest of everyone were to huddle up further along the pier. Despite the six feet apart Covid instructions that were visible everywhere lots of people complied. We stood aside with our two kids and waited while my husband inched up in the line. Of course this lady returned to our spot several times to shout and glare at us even though we were no obstacle to anyone. Upon facing a representative I approached. Because my husband did not purchase the dolphin encounter tickets, and was unaware that we were on,y paying $15. And no picture package. As soon as approached I was greeted with a wide smile. And when we declined the package all friendliness and manners from the staff disappeared. Anyways we were happy to get across to the island safely. As the crew looked dishevelled and only wanted to entertain the young girls. Return on last shift is 5:30 sharp. And since these are inflexible people make sure you are there to get back to Cancun mainland. Pity we took this one, because closer to villa del Palmar resort hotel was another pier with what I have been told is a hands down better experience with lots of amenities and friendlier people.

It was okay. The beach wasn’t too crowded but you do have to rent an umbrella for $20 if you want shade. There is an outside shower up the way so you can rinse off. There also isn’t parking so you’ll have to go up the block and find a place.

Much needed vacation, even thought it was short and sweet got to spend some time in this beach.

Really quiet and lot a lot of people, not much to do but if want a quite time, I’d say this is it.

Playa Langosta is on the northern side of the Cancun beachfront.
This side has less hotels than the central Zona Hoteliera and the sea here is much calmer with almost no waves.
The beach is public so you can see many locals with their families here spending their afternoon.
We used it for a couple of hours after visiting the close by Puerta Marina shopping mall.

a wise man once said "I don’t like sand. It’s coarse and rough and irritating… and it gets everywhere." and i agree with him it is rough it is coarse and it gets everywhere so it ruined my entire trip i went here on the last day of my holiday and this sign ruined it.

It’s nice, it it’s a public beach. The only nice thing are the Cancun colored letters to take pictures with family and/or friends. Beautiful, but if you go on weekend days, it will be filled with people making it hard to enjoy the view or the walk.
