Cancun International Airport (CUN)

Sitting on the Yucatan Peninsula along the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, Cancun is a renowned tourist destination with crystal-clear waters, white-sand beaches and year-round warm, sunny weather. The mystical Mayan ruins of Chichen-Itza and Tulum will take you on an incredible journey back to the Mayan civilization. And, a visit to the Secret River will give you a glimpse of the Mayan underworld. Cancun offers a wide range of options for travelers of all ages — from trendy nightlife and an underwater museum to eco-archaeological parks and natural aquariums.

Cancun: Make Time For Everything

Travelers to Cancun often can’t wait to return, because of all there is to explore. Rappel into crystal-clear cenotes, tour the coast by ATV, bathe in hot springs, or go on a jungle adventure. As Mexico’s most popular tourist destination, Cancun offers all sorts of shopping experiences, from street-stall jewelry stands and sprawling market-bazaars to ultramodern malls where anything imaginable is for sale.

Divers come to the Mexican-Caribbean coast for its colorful tropical fish and exquisite coral reef. Currents allow for drift dives, deep dives, night dives, wall dives and shore dives. Favorite spots for snorkeling in the area include Puerto Morelos, Cozumel, Xel-Ha, Akumal and the Underwater Art Museum, where you can marvel at more than 500 sculptures.

A fusion of flavors awaits you in Cancun. Your palate will enjoy a true carnival of taste, capable of satisfying the most demanding foodies — from sophisticated international cuisine to spicy, traditional Mexican food. Besides tequila, mescal is the trendiest drink in Mexico.

Cancun also provides easy access to exciting retreats, like the tiny island of Isla Mujeres. Only a 15-minute ferry ride from Cancun, inhabitants get around in golf carts, adding to the charm of this island, which is home to colorfully painted buildings, warm hospitality and charming, tranquil ambiance.

Riviera Maya: Check Out The Culture, Cenotes & Cuisine

As a land blessed with amazing geography, magnificently varied wildlife and lush tropical foliage, Riviera Maya, south of Cancun, offers enriching experiences for travelers who love the outdoors or cultural encounters — from watersports and fishing to browsing traditional Mexican crafts and vibrant festivals. Or, delight in family fun with the many activities available: zip lining, an underwater walking experience and more.

History enthusiasts will enjoy the traces of Mayan culture found in the plethora of ancient sites throughout Riviera Maya. Tulum stands right on the water, and hosts 60 structures. Coba is comprised of 6,500 structures in the area, most still buried, and the highest Mayan edifice in the Yucatan Peninsula, a 138-foot-tall pyramid.

Venture into the caves of Kantemo, submerge in the Xel-Ha waters, or enjoy the natural beauty of Sian Ka’an Reserve. No matter what you choose to do, it’s easy to find many amazing places to connect with nature.  There are also several smaller cities surrounding Riviera Maya worth checking out, including Playa del Carmen and Puerto Morelos.

Foodies will be seduced in Riviera Maya by the exquisite culinary triumphs of the regional cuisine. Each dish offers a delightful combination of Spanish and Mayan flavors, and most are prepared with local, inherited recipes. For authentic Mexican food, visit Playa del Carmen to find many casual eateries with delicious tacos, seafood and more.
