Attractions and Tips

Cancun is famous for its beaches, and with good reason. The "Hotel Zone," a 14-mile peninsula, has lots of hotels with boast beachfront rooms.

Meanwhile, Playa Caracol beach on the northern side of the peninsula is dotted with bars and restaurants. Its shallow water makes it perfect for lounging.

If you prefer more active beach activities, try the east-side beaches; Punta Nizuc has wind perfect for surfing and view fit for photo albums. If you prefer sightseeing, go on a day trip to Chichen Itza, an ancient Mayan temple.

Weather in Cancun is hot year-round, with averages never below 71. The sun can be a lot for you to take in bunches, however, so pack a lot of sunscreen. Thin long-sleeve shirts are another option to avoid burning.
