The warm weather destinations in the Caribbean and Mexico offer their own uniqueness. Some destinations are good for strictly beach lovers and some are geared to people who want more culture and adventure. Cancún, Mexico is one of very few destinations that offer both. With miles and miles of beaches, towns that offer shopping, restaurants and night life, and numerous cultural options, this is a destination that has something for everyone.
Cancún is divided into numerous areas, each with its own distinctiveness.
- Cancún Hotel Zone is one of the main areas which features high rise hotels along the beach. Besides excellent resorts, you are close to restaurants, shopping and a lot of night life.
- Costa Mujeres is a newly developed area about 15 minutes from Cancún. With newer resorts and a great beach, Costa Mujeres is the up and coming area. In addition, Costa Mujeres’ close proximity to Cancún offers easy accessibility.
- Riviera Maya is the largest resort area in Cancún. Riviera Maya stretches for a long distance and features some of the best resorts for all inclusives. The resorts are not large high rises and not bordering other resorts. They range in size from smaller luxury hotels to large complexes offering a multitude of different activities.
Further down the road are the areas of Akumal and Tulum which offer fewer crowds and more tranquility.
Don’t want to spend all day at the beach or pool? The Cancún area has so many other choices. Shopping in Cancún or Playa Del Carmen offers a wealth of bargains, and don’t forget to negotiate the prices. Explore the largest coral reef in the Northern Hemisphere the Great Maya Reef or take a tour to the ruins of Chichen Itza. Tulum and Coba lie in the jungles a short ride from Playa Del Carmen. X-Caret Nature Preserve is a wonderful trip for people of all ages. Of course, there are all the water sports, zip lining, hiking and river rafting to break up your beach day.
One of the best features of the Cancún area are the varying types of resorts that cover all range of budgets. There are smaller laid back resorts, family- orientated resorts and those resorts that cater to night life into the wee hours. Most of them are all inclusive.
Another great feature is the easy access of getting there. This is provided by many non-stop flights or easy connections which allow you to have lunch by the pool on your day of arrival.
