I am traveling to Cancun in a few months, and am planning on taking some family portraits. Where is the best place in Cancun to take pictures with nice backgrounds? I would like somewhere without a lot of people, undisturbed sand, and some nice big rocks or greenery. Please answer if you know of a place! Thank you!!
