Cancun holidays offer the best of beach life and more
Sand, sea and sun
Cancun is the epitome of sun, sea, sand, and surf. The sparkling waters of the Caribbean, coupled with the bright, white, soft sand of the local beaches make this a dream for all sun worshippers. Cancun is situated near the easternmost point of Mexico, offering hot, humid weather all year round. Its range of activities and experiences is varied and even features an underwater museum with sculptures designed to encourage coral growth. You can catch glimpses of it on glass-bottomed boat tours or by taking a snorkelling or diving tour to get up close.
From the sea to the jungle, Cancun offers opportunities to explore the tropical jungle environment surrounding it by boat on jungle tours. The mangroves are unique ecosystems home to a host of wildlife and vegetation. Fishing and other outdoor activities are also on offer, as are dolphin swim and diving experiences. Zip lining and ATV tours let the adventurous experience the excitement of Cancun. Of course, it is not just outdoor activities that lure millions to this exciting Mexican city every year; Cancun is world-renowned for its high-energy nightlife and dance scene, with clubs like Coco Bongo that let you party till the sun comes up. You don’t even have to stay on the shore to get the party going – party boats are available for rent, so you can dance, drink, and relax on the sparkling sea day or night.
The fascinating Mayan ruins that Mexico is famous for are within easy reach of Cancun’s beaches and clubs. Chichen Itza, the most famous of all the ruins, is accessible on day trips and features the magnificent El Castillo pyramid, which was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. A visit to the ruins allows you to take in sights such as the pyramid of Kukulkan, the Hall of the Thousand Pillars, the Playing Field of the Prisoners, and the Temple of Chac Mool. The site dates from between c. AD 600 and 900.
