Where to Stay & Why - There are lots of lodgings in Cancun, and nothing beats staying in vacation home rentals like apartments, condo rentals, villas, suites, and houses. You can stay in oceanfront condos or villa rentals with private pools that will be perfect for all kinds of travelers. These accommodations provide the same amenities and the great location of any hotel and resort while making you feel at home. You can make home-cooked meals in the fully equipped kitchen, pack light since there are laundry facilities and other amenities to entertain or even help if you’re traveling with kids. The same thing that you’ll get no matter which vacation rental you choose, is that it’s spacious, full of natural light, and exceptional views. Many of the vacation rentals come with a full staff of very nice and helpful people. What luxury!
What to See & Do - The inviting sands are the main attraction here, and its beaches are spectacular spots for water sports like jet skiing and parasailing. Pick an accommodation that is just a few seconds away from the beach so you can relax while enjoying the sun. For a truly unique experience, check out an underwater museum with over 500 sculptures called MUSA. Don’t miss Chichen Itza, a large Mayan archaeological site that is one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
Where to Eat & Drink - Dine at gourmet restaurants with freshly caught Caribbean seafood and authentic Mexican food like La Habichuela, Calypso’s, and El Fish Fritanga. Enjoy a couple of cocktails by the sea at the Blue Gecko, before diving into lively clubs like Coco Bongo to party the night away.
How to Get Here & Getting Around - Most tourists arrive at Cancun International Airport. If you’re into road trips, from the border, follow Mexican Highway 180 all the way to Cancun. The best way to get around is by bus, but for getting to and from the airport, it’s advisable to take the cab.
When to Go - It’s best to visit during peak season, December to April. You’ll get to enjoy the perfect weather for a winter getaway at the beach even if the crowds are heavier.
