Holidays to Cancun

Discover why sunseekers have been flocking to the remarkable destination of Cancun!

Since the 1970s sun worshippers have been drawn to Cancun for the 14 miles of pristine white beaches on a thin strip of land shaped like a number "7" and the brilliant turquoise surf. The Zona Hotelera comprises an incredible selection of hotels and easily accessible tourism amenities that appeal to all, from luxury shopping malls, golf courses and aquatic adventures to buzzing nightlife and renowned restaurants to suit all palates. Choose Cancun as your base if you like to get out and about, or consider a twin centre holiday to make the most of your stay in Mexico, combining a few nights in Cancun with a stay at more secluded hotel along the Riviera Cancun, Riviera Maya or the island of Cozumel.

Travel Tips & Advice for Cancun

Cancun Activities

Hotels in Cancun keep their private beaches pristine and ensure they are always generously dotted with comfortable sun loungers. If you feel like a dip, there are reefs to discover while snorkelling, breakwaters, and an impressive array of marine life living close to the coast. Many resorts offer paragliding, sailing and surfing equipment and lessons, but if you'd rather take it easy, there are also cookery classes, spa sessions and yoga groups to try out while you're here.

Cancun Food & Drink

Whether you love to eat seafood, oven-baked pizza or the traditionally spicy dishes of this colourful region, there are many excellent eateries to tempt you on holidays to Cancun. Your hotel's restaurant will also offer specialty dishes such as Cocobichuela, a shrimp and lobster curry flavoured with coconut milk, along with other delicacies. Once you've eaten, take to the beach and sit under palm-thatched umbrellas while you sip a margarita - a perfect ending to the day.

Cancun Attractions

There's always plenty to do on your resort, but when you feel like venturing further afield on luxury Cancun holidays, the Quintana Roo state has lots to offer visitors. You can visit the unspoilt national park on Isla Contoy - this small island with its abundant bird and plant life is best seen with a private tour. Further up the coast towards the north, Isla Holbox has become known for its friendly whale sharks, and it's easy to organise a trip out to swim alongside them.
