Praktische Infos über Cancun

Wie finde ich mich in der Stadt zurecht?

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.

Zeit

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

Elektrischer Strom

Währung

Die Landeswährung von Mexiko ist der New Peso (MXN). Ein New Peso entspricht 100 Centavos. Kreditkarten werden weitgehend akzeptiert, insbesondere Visa, MasterCard und American Express. Geldautomaten gibt es in den meisten Städten. Sie sind der bequemste Weg, um Bargeld zu erhalten, aber aus Gründen der Sicherheit sollten sie nur während der Geschäftszeiten benutzt werden und Wachsamkeit ist geboten. Obwohl viele Unternehmen Fremdwährungen (insbesondere US-Dollar) akzeptieren, sollten möglichst Pesos verwendet werden. Ausländische Währungen können in einer der vielen Casas de Cambio (Wechselstuben) getauscht werden. Sie haben längere Geschäftszeiten und bieten einen schnelleren Service als Banken.

Kommunikation

Die internationale Vorwahl für Mexiko ist +52. Einige US-Fernsprech-Telefongesellschaften haben Zugriffsnummern, die gewählt werden können, damit Sie Ihre Telefonkarte verwenden können - die Anrufe sind in der Regel billiger als direkt gewählte Anrufe von einem Hotelzimmer aus. Bei internationalen Anrufen aus einer Telefonzelle verwenden Sie am besten die offiziellen TelMex-Telefonzellen, alle anderen erheben sehr hohe Gebühren. GSM-Mobilfunknetze decken den Großteil des Landes ab, aber internationale Roaming-Kosten können exorbitant hoch sein. Internet-Cafés sind weit verbreitet, vor allem in Feriengebieten.

Klima

+

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.
