Infos pratiques sur Cancún

Se déplacer dans la ville

Buses are the cheapest way to get around in Cancun, and the fare from the Hotel Zone to nearly anywhere in the city is around MXN8.50. The white Bus One is air-conditioned, and costs MXN11. Intercity buses are available from the station on Avenida Tulum, including service to Playa del Carmen, Tulum, Merida, and Chetumal. Taxis are perhaps the most convenient method of getting around, and are charged by a zone system. Fares should be agreed on upfront, and travellers should note that taxis located outside restaurants and hotels charge higher rates. It is also important to know that only approved airport taxis are allowed to collect passengers from the airport. Scooter rental is another way to get around in Cancun, although it is considered dangerous and only experienced drivers should do so. Hiring a car can also be stressful, as traffic is chaotic and police are quick to pull tourists over.

Heure

GMT -6 (GMT -5 between the first Sunday in April and the second last Saturday in October).

Électricité

130 volts, 60 Hz. Les prises à deux fiches plates sont la norme.

Devise

La monnaie du Mexique est le peso mexicain (MXN), qui se divise en 100 centavos. Les cartes bancaires sont facilement acceptées, notamment les cartes Visa, MasterCard et American Express. Des distributeurs automatiques de billets sont disponibles dans la plupart des villes, ils restent le moyen le plus pratique pour se procurer de l'argent. Cependant, pour des raisons de sécurité, il est conseillé de ne les utiliser que durant les heures ouvrables et de rester vigilant. Même si de nombreux commerces acceptent les devises étrangères (notamment les dollars américains), il est préférable d'utiliser les pesos. Les devises étrangères peuvent être échangées dans l'un des nombreux « casas de cambio » (bureaux de change), qui sont plus rapides que les banques et restent ouverts plus longtemps.

Communication

L'indicatif téléphonique international du Mexique est le +52. Des sociétés américaines de téléphonie de longue distance proposent des numéros d'accès à composer pour utiliser une carte de téléphone. Ces appels sont généralement moins chers que les appels directement effectués de votre hôtel. Si vous souhaitez effectuer un appel à l'international à partir d'une cabine téléphonique, optez pour une cabine TelMex car les autres pratiquent des tarifs très élevés. Les réseaux mobiles GSM couvrent presque tout le pays mais les coûts de roaming international peuvent être prohibitifs. Les cybercafés sont très nombreux, notamment dans les zones touristiques.

Climat

+

The Yucatan Peninsula, including Cancun, is the hottest and most tropical part of Mexico, especially from June to August when humidity is high, although temperatures usually don't exceed 90°F (32°C). The rainy season runs from May to mid-October and is characterised by late afternoon tropical showers, lasting for a short time only. Cancun lies within the Atlantic Hurricane Belt and the flat terrain makes the Yucatan Peninsula especially vulnerable to storms, particularly between June and October. In fact, big storms can affect Cancun at any time of year, but although they can be violent they are usually short-lived. On average April is the driest month and October is the wettest. Humidity tends to be high all year but coastal breezes have a pleasant cooling effect. The peak tourist season in Cancun runs from December to April, when the weather is warm and the sea reliably calm, making it a good time for watersports and scuba diving. Out of this peak season, prices at the resorts tend to drop dramatically and the peninsula is less crowded. Although the threat of hurricanes puts some travellers off, between June and October the weather can be wonderful - hot with cooling winds - and can be a great time to visit if no storms hit.
