Had such a wonderful time here at Playa Chac Mool....the sand here is so soft and you don't get the sea weed smell that you get at some of the other beaches here in Mexico.

This beach was pretty and big. It had a beautiful blue ombré effect the further into the ocean you looked. The only negative was that there was a lot of seaweed. There were turtle nests on the beach as well which was pretty cool.

Chac Mool is a public beach, which means there is a public entrance, its close to a bus stop, drug store, convenience stores, and some restaurants. Near from it is also the "Disco area" (coco bongo, and many others.
