  • The Hotel Zone

    Aptly named, Cancun’s Hotel Zone is a strip on which the vast majority of the luxury hotels are built, so if you have some extra cash at your disposal, this is definitely where you want to be. Of course, it’s important to note that the Hotel Zone is also “party central”, so be prepared to share your space with party-goers determined to live their best life at every possible opportunity. Eco-certified, five-star hotel Hard Rock Hotel Cancun is an all-inclusive resort with its own private beach, swim-up bars and an outdoor swimming pool. The Grand Hotel Cancún is another five-star sure-fire win, with a high-end spa, outdoor swimming pool, private terraces and private balconies.

  • Downtown Cancun

    On a budget? Head for downtown Cancun, packed with hotels and hostels with rates a fraction of the price of a stay in the upmarket areas. Motel Costa Express is a great pick for every type of traveller, from families to couples and corporate travellers alike. Santa Fe Studios and Suites promises a relaxed atmosphere, an outdoor swimming pool, parking and free Wi-Fi.

  • Costa Mujeres

    Costa Mujeres, also known as Playa Mujeres, is an isolated gated community with a much quieter vibe, a variety of stunning beaches and offering direct connections to the nearby Isla Mujeres. Atelier Playa Mujeres is a five-star, all-inclusive resort with 593 suites, a golf course and sea views. If budget allows and you’d like to go all-out on luxury, book your stay at the Catalonia Grand Costa Mujeres, known for its private terrace suites, swim-up rooms and world-class restaurants.

Frequently asked questions

Arguably the most recognised destination in all of Mexico, Cancun frames the Caribbean Sea and is known for its beautiful beaches, resorts and nightlife. If you can manage to step away from the sand, visitors can explore the Mayan ruins of Chichén Itzá and El Rey before making a pit-stop at The Maya Museum.

Cancun is undoubtedly blessed with some of Mexico’s most pristine stretches of sand, perhaps some of its most notable are Playa Delfines (also known as El Mirador), Costa Mujeres is a gated community with plenty of all-inclusive resorts, and Isla Mujeres. If you prefer things a little less developed, head to the Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, south of Tulum. The UNESCO World Heritage site boasts 23 archaeological sites and is widely regarded as one of the best preserved habitats in Mexico.

The most popular time to visit Cancun is from December through to April when the weather is slightly less steamy and the crowds have thinned out. From March to early April is when spring breakers from the United States swarm the idyllic slice of paradise with pool parties, DJs and drinking contests, so if that’s not your vibe, best avoid.

From pristine beaches to ancient ruins, Cancun offers a plethora of attractions for a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s exploring the underwater world, partying at the hottest clubs or eating your way around with a taco in one hand and a margarita in the other, Cancun promises a vacay filled with excitement and adventure.

Despite popular opinion, Cancun isn’t all spring break and revelry – there are plenty of family-friendly activities to keep the whole tribe amused including several theme parks within the Xcaret family of parks including its namesake Xcaret, Xplor, Xavage and Xel-Ha. There’s also an aquarium and plenty of epic jungle tours.

Your sense of fun and a solid appetite for tacos and tequila. Other than those things, pack beach attire for sun-soaked days and something a little fancier for evenings. If you’re planning on exploring the ruins, be sure to pack some comfortable shoes.

From pristine beaches to ancient ruins, Cancun offers a plethora of attractions to curate the trip of a lifetime. If you’re looking to soak in a little ‘vitamin sea’, you’re spoilt for choice with Playa Delfines (also known as El Mirador), Costa Mujeres, Isla Mujeres and the UNESCO World Heritage Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve. If, however, you’re keen for lively nightlife and mouth-watering restaurants, it’s hard to go past Playa del Carmen and Tulum.
