Tropical beaches, high–octane nightlife and daytrips to Mayan ruins
When you book an All inclusive holiday to Cancun, all your flights, accommodation and food costs are taken care of upfront. That means you can put all your energy into trying out watersports, partying, or just kicking back on the white sands...
Whether it's the beaches or burritos that float your boat, Mexico lays it all on. And with All inclusive holidays to Cancun, your basic costs are covered upfront, so you can concentrate on enjoying yourself. Here are our top 5 tips for doing just that...
The beaches along Mexico's Caribbean coast are world famous, and for good reason. Think clear, turquoise waters and fine, white sands that stretch for miles. Playa Langosta, on the northern edge of the Hotel Zone, lays on plenty of waterfront restaurants and snack bars, while Playa Gaviota Azul is a breezy place that's spot–on for surfing and sailboarding.
Cancun is known for its nightlife, which draws thousands of American students during spring break. Make your way downtown for cabaret shows, flamenco dancing and acrobatic live acts. Or for something more up–tempo, head to the superclubs over at Boulevard Kukulcan in the Hotel Zone. A lot of the time the entrance fee includes an all–you–can drinks deal.
Cancun dishes up hundreds of restaurants, which range from beachfront shacks to swanky eateries. To dine like the locals, head downtown and try a classic dish like tikin xic – fish cooked Mayan–style with orange and lime juice. Or, for a taste of modern Mexico, sample the ceviche – raw fish 'cooked' in lime juice.
Cancun sits on Mexico's Yucatán Pensinsula. Some 1,500 years ago, this was home to the ancient Mayan civilisation, and today you'll find the well–preserved ruins of its cities. The biggies are at Chichen Itza, about 2 hours inland from Cancun, and Tulum, about 90 minutes south. Here you'll see the remains of temples, castles and other buildings.
Cancun's only waterpark, Wet'n' Wild, really piles on the thrills. You can shoot down 6 storeys in a family–sized inflatable, go in for a boogie–board relay race or try out the Bumper Boats – think dodgem cars, but wetter. Meanwhile, those after something a little mellower can pootle down the lazy river or swim with dolphins.
