The Caribbean Jewel of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula
Because no beaches in Cancun are privately owned, you can pitch a tent just about anywhere in Cancun. Safety is an issue, so try and be somewhere that is not too deserted. There are a few organized campsites available. Some are more for RV travelers, others offer space and a hammock. Beach huts made from palm fronds are also available to rent, but are becoming few and far between as more resorts are being favoured. Camping will never be the biggest part of the tourist market in Cancun; you will always find suitable sites under the stars in Cancun.
