Although Cancún looks like it has all the makings for an idyllic beach vacation, some things about the city can be far from perfect, according to INSIDER

Not all the beaches are picturesque…

… many of the shopping and dining options are far from authentic…

… and resorts are almost always packed.

The weather isn’t always perfect, either.

September through December are Cancún’s rainiest months.

Cancún’s beaches are also sometimes plagued with sargassum algae blossoms.

The algae has a variety of sources, including hurricanes, climate change, and pollution.

In addition to ruining your beach photos…

… the algae blossoms release a pungent, rotten egg-like smell.

Cancún is also home to mangrove swamps…

… which are being destroyed by nearby construction.
