Two faces of Cancun

Share This

Cancun has two distinct areas: Cancun Island, more commonly called the Hotel Zone (Zona Hotelera) and Downtown Cancun, known as the city of Cancun (Ciudad Cancun).

The Hotel Zone is a 15-mile (24 km) sand strip in the shape of a number seven and, as you might have guessed, is not short of hotels.

Most visitors to Cancun will probably stay here.

There is only one road in the Hotel Zone, Kukulcan Boulevard, which runs along the island so getting around is easy, particularly by bus.

Downtown Cancun, where the local Mexicans live and work, is where you’ll find some local culture with Parque Las Palapas (a friendly park) and Mercado 28 (a huge flea market) – both worth a visit.

Parque Las Palapas is at 77500, Tulipanes LB, Cancun, Quintana Roo. Mercado 28 is at Xel-ha Mz 13, 77509 Cancun, Quintana Roo. Take a guided city tour.
