Famous for its green-blue sea and beautiful white sand beaches, Cancun is located in the state of Quintana Roo. This is the ideal destination to relax and enjoy the unforgettable beaches. Cancun offers a wide range of cultural and entertainment spots: excursions, shopping, water sports including snorkelling, fishing, diving and swimming, theme and water parks, architectural sites, the best golf courses, tennis and exciting nightlife.
Cancún is a tale of two cities. There's the glitzy hotel zone with its famous white-sand beaches, unabashed party scene and sophisticated seafood restaurants. Then there's the actual city itself, which gives you a taste of local flavor at, say, a neighborhood taco joint or a nearby, undeveloped beach.
That's what keeps Cancún interesting. Had your fill of raucous discos in the hotel zone? Escape to a downtown salsa club. Tired of lounging around the pool? Simply hop on a bus and head for the sapphire waters of the hotel zone.
Or even better, venture out and explore more of Quintana Roo state. Just a day trip away from Cancún, the pristine national park of Isla Contoy beckons with a fascinating variety of bird and plant species. And up north awaits low-key Isla Holbox, where swimming with massive whale sharks has become all the rage.
