Cancun is the largest, most successful planned resort in Mexico and the Caribbean, unrivaled by anything, anywhere.

The beach area of Cancun, known as the Hotel Zone, is shaped like the number 7, with the Caribbean Sea to the east, the Bay of Mujeres to the north, and the Nichupte Lagoon to the west. It measures 14 miles of beachfront land, now almost fully developed, with many resort hotels in close proximity; shopping malls, restaurants, and recreational activities, are all close by, some literally at your doorstep.

Many hotels offer all-inclusive plans, but many are conventionally European Plan. Full service spas, meeting facilities, children’s programs, and a growing number of golf courses, are characteristic. Most hotels have beautiful pools, which are sometimes more attractive than the beach to some guests.

Major U.S. and international hotel chains are present, including Hyatt, Sheraton, Westin, Hilton, Marriott, InterContinental, and Ritz-Carlton. Prominent Mexican and Spanish companies include Fiesta Americana, Camino Real, Palace Resorts, Sol Melia Group, RIU resorts, and Occidental resorts. And Club Med’s Cancun property is almost always sold out, it’s so popular.

Cancun’s popularity is worldwide – guests come from Europe, Asia, and Australia, as well as from North America. There is no truly bad season to go, but winter continues to be the big draw, as is true elsewhere in the Caribbean.

Cancun International Airport lies just south of the Hotel Zone, and receives domestic, international, and charter flights daily, year round. Cancun is also the airport for the Mayan Riviera and Cozumel, just to the south.

Not To Be Missed – Visit Isla Mujeres, the most important offshore island; visit Mayan ruins, across the street from the Cancun Hilton; visit the Interactive Aquarium, within the Plaza La Isla shopping center.
