Cancun: Where else?

Share This

Cancun is the big boy of the Yucatan Peninsula with world-class luxury hotels dominating the skyline. More than 32,000 hotel rooms are available in Cancun to cater to the 6 million tourists a year who seek Caribbean sun, sand and surf.

The city of more than 600,000 residents is home to high-end shopping like Prada and Louis Vuitton, but it also has several souvenir markets to indulge those looking for locally made items. Restaurants, bars and nightclubs for all tastes abound. A favorite is Captain’s Cove Grill, where patrons watch the sun set over Nichupte Lagoon.

Golf, cruises to the islands, excursions to family-friendly theme parks and watersports are popular vacation experiences.

The Maya Museum of Cancun showcases Maya art and architecture. Its three exhibition halls also portray the daily life of the Maya people in pre-Hispanic Mexico using archaeological artifacts from its 400-piece collection.
