Cancun

With vast golden beaches lapped by warm turquoise water, the resort of Cancun combines the climate of the Caribbean with a distinctly Mexican flavour. Due to its enviable position and fabulous range of accommodation, Cancun is a very popular place to stay.

If you’re looking for luxury Cancun hotels, Zona Hotelera is the perfect destination. While Cancun Centro is the heart of the original city, offering character, charm and culture and is where you’ll find some of the nicest cheap Cancun hotels on offer. Playa del Carmen is probably the city's most popular location, and many hotels here are located right on the beachfront.

Whether you’re holidaying with the family, a group of friends or it’s just the two of you, there are plenty of options, with all-inclusive Cancun hotels proving very popular with visitors. This type of property offers a range of activities, swimming pools and restaurants to choose from, so there’s no way you will get bored - even if you do stay within the complex.

Both within and beyond Cancun itself, this part of Mexico offers plenty to see and do. The region is rich in Mayan history, with Chichen Itza and the Tulum ruins within easy reach. If you prefer natural history, then a jungle tour might satisfy - especially if the idea of seeing colourful, tropical birds in full flight interests you.

Snorkelling and diving are deservedly popular pastimes in and around Cancun too. Unusually, the resort even has an underwater museum, which features hundreds of sculptures under the sea, within Cancun’s National Marine Park. Fishing is also popular, on and off the shore of Cancun, while various boat trips are available - including dinner cruises, yachts and catamarans, and even pirate ship tours and floating festivals, full of Mexican colour.

The food is obviously a highlight of any visit to Mexico, with local style options ranging from huevos rancheros for breakfast, to tasty filled tacos or burritos for lunch, followed by a hot-or-not chilli for dinner. Many of the Cancun hotels, especially those offering an all-inclusive tariff, have a selection of restaurants offering cuisines from all over the globe, so you can try something different every day.

Wherever you decide to stay, Cancun is a delightful destination, with plenty to keep everyone happy. Whether you’re holidaying as a family or flying solo, and whether you’re into beaches and water sports or history, culture and nature.
