Cancun Travel Guide

As one of the first planned tourist cities in the world, Cancun is wholly dedicated to the pleasures of a sun and sand vacation. On the Caribbean coast of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, Cancun boasts fine white sand beaches and warm turquoise water. The Hotel Zone is just what it sounds - - hotels , dining and shopping, geared towards international tourists, cruise ship passengers and all-inclusive vacation resorts. To add a bit of adventure to your vacation, venture out into the city to go on a Jeep safari, visit Mayan ruins, swim with dolphins at an adventure park or explore offshore for a boat trip. While chain restaurants abound, Cancun's dining options have expanded upon the gourmet side featuring Yucatecan cuisine like poc chuc (shredded pork marinated in sour orange juice ) or succulent lobster. For night owls, Cancun has a vibrant nightlife, with a multitude of bars and clubs for all ages. These are especially packed during Cancun's busiest week with the under-25 set: spring break, which can run anywhere from mid-March to mid-April.

Getting There - getting there from the airport is very easy with the ADO bus service. You can buy ticket at the terminal, they take card as well. To the bus station it takes 45 mins, after that you might need to change to local buses, if you go to the Hotel zone take the R1 bus, it’s only 12 Mxn Attractions - The Ferris Wheel, Tequila museum, Chocolate museum, The Mirror maze, Wax museum, Isla de Mujeres, Playa de Carmen… Hotels - plenty hotels, apartments Food & Restaurants - really good food even streetfood is very good, restaurants offer good quality at reasonable price. Shopping - La Isla Shopping Village, Plaza las Americas #beachvacation
