Review of Cancun
Flights to Cancun take you to Mexico's white sand Caribbean beach. Holidaymakers bronze themselves by day and let loose in the Hotel Zone's famed bars and mega clubs at night.
Things to do
Snorkel with tropical fish around Cancun Island and in the Mayan Riviera's natural water parks. The Caribbean and the lagoon are natural playgrounds for water sports. Haunting archaeological ruins along the coast and inland give a taste of the real Mexican jungle.
The Hotel Zone's luxury malls overflow with international designer fashions and duty-free shopping. Cheaper local handicrafts, jewellery and clothes fill the simple shops and markets of Cancun City. The best flea markets are located downtown, where bargaining is common.
The resorts of the Hotel Zone are full of pricey international restaurants. Independent seafood establishments along the lagoon serve Caribbean lobster, grilled fish and succulent shrimp. Inexpensive Mexican eateries cluster in Cancun City, so head downtown for cheap spicy tacos.
Cancun's year-round, sunny Caribbean party rocks hardest at Spring Break. Vacationers go wild on Cancun holidays in the Hotel Zone, where indoor and outdoor bars play music day and night. Try Cancun City's traditional Mexican cantinas for potent shots of local tequila.
