Holidays in Cancun

Nothing short of perfection, Cancun holidays are designed to invigorate the senses, relax the soul and leave you wanting more.

This much loved holiday destination is located along the north-east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula and will allow you to experience first-hand the breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea, its wonderful, tropical climate and over 240 days of sunshine a year.

Holidays in Cancun offer you the chance to step through the doors to the ancient and mysterious Mayan civilization. Providing an irresistible combination of exquisite white, sandy beaches, important historic and cultural sites and plenty of bars, restaurants and activities, a getaway to this idyllic location is sure to take your breath away.

A Beach Paradise

Cancun offers a simply dizzying array of accommodation options to suit the needs of individuals, couples and families alike. Choose from a wide range of convenient and centrally located 3-star hotels, or bag yourself the ultimate in luxury with a 5-star hotel that sits right on the soft sand of the Mexican Caribbean Coast.

In Cancun's Hotel Zone you will be treated like royalty. Standard amenities include gyms, swimming pools, restaurants and bars. All the hotels in this area come equipped with their very own private beaches, making it the ideal choice for couples and families looking for some quality time together.

The El Centro district, meanwhile, has many comfortable hotels that are conveniently located close to shops, bars, casinos, restaurants, cafes and sites of historical and cultural interest, perfect for those who like to get out and experience the joys of the local area.

The Great Mayan Barrier Reef

Cancun holidays offer many interesting visitor attractions to help fill your days with ease. A visit to the Great Mayan Barrier Reef is a must for divers and sea lovers alike. As one of Cancun's most-loved visitor attractions, it's the second largest coral reef in the world. Here you can gaze at dozens of beautiful corals and tropical fish, offering up a kaleidoscope of exotic colours. Cancun is a paradise for water-sport enthusiasts with swimming, scuba diving, snorkelling and diving just some of the activities on offer in the lagoon area of this stunning location.

For a truly unforgettable experience, a visit to Cancun Underwater Museum is a must. It is one of the largest man-made underwater attractions in the world and was created to both protect and promote the growth of the coral reef. Gaze at over 400 life-size human sculptures including the 'The Dream Collector' and the 'The Silent Evolution'.

The Gateway to the Mayan World

If you want to travel further afield, take a tour of some of the amazing Mayan ruins, ancient pyramids and ceremonial sites that surround Cancun or enjoy what the wider Yucatan Peninsula has to offer.

There are many day trips available to visit the main archaeological sites of Coba Maya, Tulum and Chichen Itza. Chichen Itza is a UNESCO World Heritage site and has been voted as one of the Seven Wonders of the World. The site was at the heart of the Mayan empire and is home to the breathtaking El Castillo pyramid.

Take a boat trip to Isla Mujeres, known as the 'Island of Women' in Spanish, and delight in the true beauty of the Yucatan Peninsula. Isla Mujeres is a sun kissed island just a few kilometres off the coast of Cancun. The island has much to offer including beautiful beaches, organised nature tours, the chance to swim with dolphins, come face to face with whale sharks or even meet endangered sea turtles at the state-sponsored Turtle Farm.

Fun on the Beach

Chances are it won’t be long before you and your partner get your feet in the sand on one of Cancun’s beaches.

While you’re there, check out the water sports on offer in the warm waters of the Caribbean Sea. The clear waters present one of the best places to go snorkelling and diving with expert tuition available for those wanting to get their flippers wet.

If you’d rather be on the water instead of in it, a romantic dinner cruise on Nichupté Lagoon offers its guests a fantastic lobster meal and an experience of a lifetime to share with that special someone

Adventures

Want a thrilling way to see the surrounding jungles?

Hop on an ATV and take a white knuckle ride through the ancient jungle before exploring an underground cave and freshwater sinkhole. The tour finishes up on the shores of Cozumel Island where you can snorkel, sunbathe or simply kick back and revel in one of the most gorgeous locations on earth.

Cuisine

Cancun, like many beach destinations, does its very best to provide food to suit every taste and budget.

For a true taste of the region however, try the fantastically fresh local seafood. If you have money to spare, the lobster, scallops and langoustines are second to none but there’s plenty more excellent eats on offer.

Classic Mexican staples are joined by a range of international cuisines such as Italian and Asian as well as cheap and delicious local delicacies you can find on the street.
