Cancun is one the most important travel destinations not just in Mexico, but in the entire planet. And for good reasons! Warm turquoise waters, soft white-sand beaches, colorful sea life, nearby jungle adventures, incredible nightlife and world-class resorts are part of what makes Cancun a traveler’s paradise.
Strap on snorkel gear and take the plunge into the Caribbean Sea to watch tropical fish and sea turtles around the Mesoamerican Reef System, the second largest in the world. Feel the rush as you drive a speedboat at full speed across Cancun's Nichupte Lagoon, exploring an intricate ecosystem of mangroves and varied wildlife. Hang tight before zooming on thrilling zip lines above the Mayan jungle treetops and freshwater sinkholes called cenotes, then relax back at the beach as you soak in the sun and the good Caribbean vibes.
Also, a short ferry ride will transport you to Isla Mujeres, an enchanting island with calm beaches, colorful shops and houses, ancient ruins, and a plethora of seaside adventures. But if you prefer to take it slow, climb aboard a pirate ship with your loved one for the ultimate Caribbean dinner cruise as the sun sets and a swashbuckling spectacle ensues. Or end the night at the Hotel Zone's nightclubs such as the famous Coco Bongo, where drinks, music and a spectacular show will electrify you.
Of course, your stay in Cancun wouldn't be complete without an exploration of the nearby temples that remind us of the Mayan empire's glory. Experience the monumental Chichen Itza and its many structures bowing down to the crowing pyramid, the Temple of Kukulcan. And the ancient cities of Coba, Ek Balam and Tulum also await with their own histories and exciting jungle adventures. With many excursions that pack action, culture and relaxation into one visit, your time in Cancun is bound to become your best vacation ever!
See what endless summer looks like in the Mexican Caribbean.
