A Cancun Mexico vacation is an exciting way to spend your precious time away from work and the hectic daily life you lead. A Cancun Mexico vacation has so many things to offer that you can barely imagine, let alone experience, all of them.

As Mexico’s most visited tourist destination, Cancun boasts over 25 thousand hotel rooms set against a backdrop of the bluest Caribbean waters and long stretches of white sand fringed with swaying palms.

Some people here spend their entire vacation without even leaving the resort. This just goes to show how diversely entertaining a Cancun Mexico vacation resort can be.

Getting to Cancun

Of course, you can’t really take a proper Cancun Mexico vacation without knowing the details of getting there. First, you need to know its location. Cancun is situated in the State of Quintana Roo. That is, it is located at the most southern tip of the peninsula on Mexico’s Caribbean Coast.

Divided into two sections, you can choose where to spend your Cancun Mexico vacation between the Hotel Zone (Zona Hotelera) which is a sandy strip of land, stretching 22 kilometers between a lagoon and seaside hotels located on Cancun Island; and Cancun City Downtown, otherwise known as El Centro, which is home to the many Mexicans who live in the district and located on the mainland.

Most flights coming in to Mexico end up in the International Airport where a bus usually waits for passengers to drive them to their respective Cancun Mexico vacation hotel or resort. If not, you may ask a porter or just walk over to the bus stand right at the end of the front of the terminal.

Things to Do

Here, you can enjoy many Mexico vacation delights, like golf, tennis, and lots of shopping opportunities. There are 475 species of birds, over a hundred different mammals, and 1,200 plant species. The sparkling Caribbean Sea is home to over 2,500 marine species and 500 different tropical fish – surely an angler’s never ending dream vacation.

Ancient Mayan ruins abound! But, of course! Being on a Cancun Mexico vacation means being at the center of the fascinating Mayan World.

The best attraction that a Cancun Mexico vacation has is the Caribbean Sea and the many powdery beaches running right along it. After all, this is the reason that Cancun exists. Thus, it goes without saying that the primary attractions a Cancun Mexico vacation has are aquatic oriented. So you have diving, snorkeling, fishing, water parks, kayaking, jet skiing, canoeing, sailing, and just plain swimming.

If you’ve had enough of beaches and water and want to try something new, check out the “big attractions” just a one to two hour drive from Cancun. These include Xcaret, Xel-Ha, which are cenotes and ruins sites, easily accessible via tours, Mexican bus, or car rental.
