Best Places to See Sunset in Cancun You've got the ocean, you've got the beach... now all you need is a picture-perfect sunset. If you're dreaming of watching the sunset from the beach, you'll have to revise your dream just a bit; the sun doesn't set over the ocean in Cancun. Instead, Cancun's spectacular sunsets occur over Laguna Nichupté, a large lagoon on the inland side of Cancun. Exploring and picking your own spot might be the most fun, but if you wanted a guaranteed good view, lots of folks recommend the local restaurant La Habichuela Sunset. Yes, that's really its name. If you're visiting on Wednesday or Friday, stay on for the Mayan show, which starts at 8:00pm.
