The runners are a small tribe that soon come to know the best places to go for a run. These are some of the best places in Cancun to run.

I'm not a runner, but I have friends that do, so you end up thinking about these things, by proximity. There are several groups with personal trainer and athletes that train alone that leave mornings and afternoons to train through the better conditioned areas of Cancun to run.

Best places to run in Cancun:

Malecón Tajamar

Running with the Nichupté lagoon Background is a luxury. An open space with raised lanes for bikes and skaters. The Tajamar boardwalk It has a kilometer of distance from end to end, and half a kilometer from the Bonampak to the lagoon, with almost no shadows to take refuge. The tracks are not marked with distances, but you already have them.

Enjoy the place, one of my favorite spaces in Cancun, ideal for runners. Malecon Tajamar is currently a controversial point for the more than likely devastation of the mangrove area and construction of building blocks, in one of the open spaces most appreciated by the Cancun.

Location: it is entered from the Bonampak Avenue, in front of the Las Americas shopping center.

Urban Park Kabah

Our Urban Park Kabah It would be the equivalent of Central Park in New York or the Ciutadella de Barcelona (the earth betrays me). Another place preferred by the athlete to go for a run and take advantage of sports equipment installed in the park. A marked route of one kilometer eight hundred meters between shadows in this thick natural park, lung of Cancun, is the great attraction for runners.

Location: It is located between Avenida Kabah and Nichupté. There are 2 entries, one entrance on each avenue, both with parking. Opening hours: from 6 to 18 hours every day

Km 0 of the Zona Hotelera

The surely busiest runway in Cancun, where tourists and residents sweat together. Walk almost no more cuts of 26 kilometers along Boulevard Kukulcán, where the Zona Hotelera. A very nice place between lights and shadows, sometimes too crowded for my taste. At km 0, on the Bonampak, there is a large parking lot. Another attraction is that the space is enabled with sports equipment. Yoga is also practiced here. You see, a very moving point and with a lot of life the 0 km.

Location: in Av. Bonampak, where begins the Boulevard Kukulcán that runs Zona Hotelera.

Dolphins Beach

For the most extreme runners who want to gain leg power, you can run for Dolphins beach, one of the favorite ones by some sports trainers for the light slopes of the sand dunes. A luxury to take advantage of the Caribbean and its entangled colors, to dawn here running safely gives you the perfect pile for your day.

Location: 18 Kilometer of Boulevard Kukulcán, in the Zona Hotelera from Cancun.


Puerto Cancún

A space somewhat similar to Malecón Tajamar, where they built a complex of offices, businesses, residential and shops on the coast line. The sidewalks of Puerto Cancún and the reduced traffic allow running in open space, you will have few shadows. The track connects you on the killometer two of the track Zona Hotelera, a circuit that seems very attractive in combinations. It also connects with Las Perlas beach, a space not so crowded for the exquisite runners.

Location: Puerto Cancún has two entrances, one on km 2 of Bolevard Kukulcán, and another with parking at Bonampak, past Superama to Puerto Juarez.

Park without name (I do not know)

This park, of which I do not know the name, is a little hidden gem. It has a somewhat ramshackle cement track, but it is a very attractive space with basketball courts, circuits and sports equipment. This place is one of my favorites in Cancun for a walk, on weekends there is a beat of placid life among dogs taking their owners for a walk, sportsmen, young people romancing and groups of friends playing hide and seek or handkerchief. I like this place.

Location: between Bonampak and Tulum, from the stretch of the Bullring to the 0 Kilometer Zona Hotelera. Look out and discover it.


Running track

These public facilities are among the best in Cancun, with a track of eight lanes in excellent conditions, where each track is used as you run more or less quickly. The track, known as The Valenzuela bull, it is a good space for the practice of other sports such as boxing, in addition you have sports equipment for common use and basketball and soccer fields.

Location: main access on 39 street, between Francisco I. Madero avenue (4 route) and Miguel Hidalgo (5 route). Opening hours: from 6 to 23 hours every day

Puerto Juarez, Punta Sam road

The Maritime Terminal of Puerto Juarez a cycle path that takes you along 4 kilometers to Punta Sam leaves. Many runners use this cement bike path through which they barely pass bikes. The majority of those who travel by bike continue to use the road due to the constant ups and downs of the unlikely path of the cycle path. So it's a great track for runners. You can end up at Playa Niños doing stretching in front of the sea.

Location: In Puerto Juarez, the track begins near the Maritime Terminal of Puerto Juarez, past the Oxxo of Captain Hook.
