Playa Chac Mool Reviews & Ratings
A busy public beach with all sorts of people and spaces there, from stylish to rubbish... The weather was good and the sun was shining over all equally, bringing joy and good times to all hearts and places. I love Mexico, the life is simple, the people are simple, sometimes I feel we don't appreciate the blessings we have being in the USA... It's no one's fault that they were borned in this country and that progress and life's quality might come generations latter if they ever will...
Super crowded and still beautiful. Weekdays are more spacious. Best time to go is in the morning before 11a.
Beautiful beach. Can obviously get pretty busy. The water is incredibly clear - even waist deep you can see the sand on the bottom. There are limited access points that are public not hotel
I like water, which is very crystalline and very white sand. it is a good place to go with your friends or family, and even your alone, to enjoy the sun and the sand and enjoy a delicious cocktail and a beer, immerse yourself in the water and simply enjoy and de-stress.
Love setting up my tent here for a day. Will say that other "campers" need to observe normal camping rules though, pick up after yourself, use bathrooms because they ARE available, leave it looking the same or better after you leave.
