A breathtaking combination of Caribbean hues, white sandy beaches and Mexican traditions, Cancun is unequalled as a Caribbean destination because of its historical, cultural and gastronomic features that complement its natural beauty. Much more than a luxury beach vacation destination, this sunny city that never sleeps boasts the best in sophisticated relaxation, seaside fun as well as unforgettable cultural experiences.
Cancun’s cultural and historical significance goes far beyond the typical Mexican traditions such as mariachi, tacos and tequila. Cancun and its surroundings are steeped in ancient historical wonders, owing to the rich Mayan legacy that has enchanted the area for centuries. Impressive Mayan archeological sites abound, from grand cities like Chichen Itza to trading towns like Tulum (which overlooks a stunning beach), to mini sacred sites like El Meco and El Rey located within Cancun itself.
Cancun is also a magnet for adventure seekers and nature lovers, with unique geographical features such as cenotes (freshwater sinkholes) and underground river systems to explore, in addition to the usual adrenaline pumping activities you generally find at the beach in Mexico like parasailing, jet skis, paddle boarding and jet packs. Other remarkable outdoors excursions for you to experience during a vacation in Cancun include reef, cave and shipwreck diving, swimming with whale shark and zip-lining.
And finally, for those seeking sophisticated lifestyle experiences, gourmet dining and nightlife, Cancun is the perfect host. Packed with fine dining venues as well as fun bars and nightclubs, the debonair jet-setter in you will be satisfied by the choice of excuses for chic socializing in Cancun.
