About Cancun

 

Cancun is an open gate to your dream vacation. It boasts state-of-the-art hotel facilities among the coolest clubs, bars, and malls only a few feet away from the most beautiful beaches in the world.

Cancun delivers the best of both worlds: the Caribbean and Mexico. Cancun offers an unequalled mix of manmade, natural, and cultural attractions. Cancun was a part of the ancient Mayan civilization and is still considered the gateway to the Mayan World. Mayan temples and ritual sites are literally everywhere, some smothered by lush jungle, others easily accessible. There is even a Mayan temple overlooking the Caribbean Sea in the heart of the Cancun Hotel Zone!

Cancun is situated on the southeast coast of Mexico in the state of Quintana Roo in the Yucatan Peninsula. The small island just 12 miles long and 1 mile wide right on the Caribbean coast is marked by exceptional natural beauty and dotted with lagoons and spectacular beaches. Warm white powdery sand beaches and turquoise crystal clear waters together with the famous Mexican hospitality make this a place like no other!

Cancun has the most modern and functional airport in Latin America and the Caribbean, offering worldwide connections and flights. Its hotels, restaurants, shopping malls and entertainment centers offer the best quality and service, not only in the Caribbean, but worldwide. With 250 sunny days a year, the gentle sea breezes keep the temperature at around 80ºF.

Cancun International Airport is located approximately 15-25 minutes from the Hotel Zone and 15 minutes from downtown Cancun.

The city of Cancun is young, as are most of its permanent and temporary inhabitants. It was just a small sand barrier some 35 years ago when the plan began to develop it into the vacation haven of the 21st century. Today, Cancun consists of a medium-sized coastal city and a long, thin island connected to the mainland through bridges at its north and south ends. It features world-class resorts, hotels, clubs, and malls. It offers something for everyone, from an all-day fun party beach to an isolated, tranquil island.

Here you'll find everything, from ultra chic to funky laidback, from R&B to techno, from tacos and cheeseburgers to fancy, mainstream standards. All tastes are welcomed and catered to in this paradise. No wonder this is Mexico's most popular resort.

CANCUN BEACHES

The new, great, and gorgeous beaches of white sand caressed by warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea stand out as the hottest spots in town, both literally and figuratively. It's impossible not to enjoy them so don't even try. Put on your bikini or swimsuit, it's time for fun under the sun!

HOTEL ZONE

Most resorts, hotels, and condominiums are located in the Hotel Zone, as this long strip of island is known.It is the area where it all comes together for most visitors. Kukulcan Boulevard is the main and only thoroughfare. On the west side of the island is Laguna Nichupte, a vast lagoon home to hundreds of marinas, waterfront restaurants, shopping malls, a couple of golf courses, a few islands and inlets, and the fantastic sunsets you'll see during your Cancun vacation. The island's energized atmosphere emanates from the middle, its heartbeat, an area known as the Party Zone featuring the bestnightclubs, bars, restaurants, and shopping malls.

DOWNTOWN CANCUN

Downtown Cancun offers an alternative to all the glitz and hype of the Hotel Zone with some great restaurants, bars, and shopping arcades. The atmosphere becomes more family-friendly as all the people who make this paradise work live here. They are the target market and the ambience not only becomes Latin, but prices go down significantly. Your wallet will appreciate very much your visit to downtown, as the money it contains will certainly go farther there during your Cancun vacation.
