Costa Cancún is the maritime strip of almost 30 kilometers that occupies the Zona Hotelera from the city of Cancun, where we find several public access beaches. Nizuc Beach is surely the least known of all those in Cancun.

Cancun's public beaches are located along the nearly 30 kilometers of Boulevard Kukulcán, the highway that runs through the Zona Hotelera from Cancun from end to end. Playa Nizuc, without being the most spectacular of the beaches of Cancun, is a beautiful place to find tranquility within the so-called Costa Cancun.
