Cancun is a popular destination for those looking to holiday in the Mexican sunshine, and offers an ideal stopover destination if you’re looking to explore the ancient cities and Mayan temples of the Yucatan Peninsula.
Described by Travel Supermarket as “a fabulous base to explore Mexico's depths, Cancun is a Caribbean paradise for all holidaymakers and especially partygoers”, the coastal region has miles of sandy beaches on which to relax, as well as the opportunity to partake in a wide range of water sports on and below the warm Caribbean Sea – including water-skiing, scubadiving and deep sea fishing.
There are also boat tours available to a number of picturesque islands – including Isla Mujeres, where you can take a swim in the clear blue waters. There are also a range of boat tours that allow you to get close to nature – whether you’re looking to swim with dolphins or even feed sharks.
Cancun holidays are a popular draw for tourists who are looking to relax in the Caribbean climate, with a warm year-round climate attracting families, eager explorers and partygoers to the region each year. The city is famous for its resorts and nightlife –particularly amongst backpackers – with a wide range of bars and nightclubs to enjoy during their stay.
Many who visit the region choose to escape the bustling city and head out into the countryside on guided tours in order to explore the rich history of the Yucatan region through tours of ancient sites – including the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza , one of the most visited Mayan sites in Mexico.
So whether you’re looking to explore the ancient ruins at Yucatan, relax on the many beaches along the coast, or have fun at the many resorts, water parks and dive sites along the coast, Cancun is a destination to consider for your trip to Mexico.
