Immerse yourself in the busy beach at Playa Tortugas, a sandy strip lined with cafes, restaurants, and bars.

Take a swim or try out something more adventurous, such as jet skiing, with a wealth of rental stores located along the beach. When the mood strikes you, wander over to one of the lively beach bars to listen to dance music and enjoy an ice cold beverage.
