Lighted UFO following shores of Play Car towards Cancun and making tight circle

This object appeared as light following approximately 1 mile off the Playa Car coast heading north towards Cancun. The object glowed appeared as a blueish white glow with tints of green and red flickering (almost like a reflection) in the glow.

The craft appeared to move with the coast line, then made a tight circle and came out on a tangent from the start of the circles with a slight acceleration. When the craft accelerated, the resorts lights around the massive pool area and surrounding bulidings dimmed for approximatley 30 seconds.

The weather was clear skis with an occasional cloud. There was no sound and this was 30 minutes prior to midnight. The path of the craft was also not part of the Cancun international airports flight path.

Also, the tight cirecle that was made could not have been done by any aircraft that I know except a helicopter or small ultralight which would have made noise considering the night was still with a slight breeze coming in from teh ocean, meaning any sound from the craft would have been audible.

Also, the craft had the same appearnce of light from as it approached and flew away.

Something not very typical of aircraft that use a variance of light to signal which way you are looking at the craft. Also, these lights were not flashing but more changing and "fluxing" with frequency.
