Cancún, on the northeast coast of the Yucatán Peninsula in Mexico, has been a famous holiday destination since the 1970s. Beautiful beaches, lush rainforest, ancient Mayan ruins, and exciting activities will make Cancún a holiday of a lifetime for you. Explore the towering pyramids of Chichen Itza, swim in the crystal clear waterfalls of a cenote sinkhole, or visit the turtle sanctuary on a relaxing day on Isla Mujeres. If you need an adrenaline kick after relaxing at the beach, soar over the sparkling water with a jetpack, scuba dive at the MUSA underwater museum, or rush down the longest zip line in Latin America at Cancún Adventure. Quiet or active, there are plenty of other pursuits for you in Cancún.
Where to stay
Most Cancún hotels and resorts are located in the Hotel Zone on Cancún Island and have direct beach access. All-inclusive resorts are especially popular. Playa Mujeres and Isla Mujeres are quieter and also great places to find resort-style accommodation. Comfortable motels can be found in downtown Cancún and near the airport.
Best travelling time
Cancún is warm all year round but has high rainfall in September and October. Between December and April the weather is near perfect, but the crowds are heavier, as it is high season. Avoid spring break between mid-March and early April, when US school-leavers crowd the city in a round-the-clock party.
