Cancun Vacation, Tours, Travel Packages & Experiences


Cancun is a fairly recently man-made resort dating back to 1970 before which it did not exist as such. It is located in the north east of the Yucatan Peninsula and on the Caribbean Sea. It is definitely Mexico’s showcase resort. Few resorts anywhere on Mexico vacations have the infrastructure and amenities that were built into Cancun from the beginning. It is naturally endowed with turquoise waters and powdery white sandy beaches. The beaches themselves stretch for 23 kilometres/14 miles and are shaped like the number seven. There is a large selection of good quality hotels many of which are all-inclusive resorts. 

Cancun is not only for sun worshippers but also for water sports enthusiasts. Being located on a coral reef, Cancun is popular with both scuba divers and snorkelers. There are also 2 excellent golf courses. 

One major attraction of Cancun is its proximity to several archaeological Mayan sites including the nearby Tulum and a little further afield, Chichen Itza.  In Cancun itself are the Mayan Museum of Cancun and the very unusual Subaquatic Museum of Art which is an underwater contemporary art museum where sculptures are fixed to the seabed, to be experienced on a Mexico vacation package. 

Other popular activities are shopping in the many markets and jeep safaris around the vicinity.
