Where to stay in Cancun

The city of Cancun is situated in Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula on the Caribbean and is renowned for its incredible beaches, busy resorts and bustling nightlife with much of the action centered around the beach strip of Zona Hotelera and the downtown area of El Centro.

Thanks to its stunning beaches and hedonistic nightlife, Cancun remains a popular choice with US students looking to holiday during their spring break. If you prefer a quieter and less expensive time to visit the city, consider going in early December or in April to avoid the crowds yet still take advantage of the weather.

Cancun and the surrounding area are well served by public transport and taxis. If a day trip further afield is part of the itinerary, it may be worth considering a tour on an air-conditioned bus, especially if the majority of the stay is to be spent on the beach or in the city, although car rental is also an option.

We went to Cancun and had a ball. We were young and very much into nightlife. The nightlife was amazing, crowds were hopping and food was cheap. We went to Cancun central and met some incredible people. A must go to Mexico

Haven't gone away to many trips, but it was the best one so far. We went for a wedding and stayed at an all-inclusive resort in Riviera Maya (one hour south from Cancun) and it was fantastic! We spent a lot of nights dancing and drinking and recovered at the pool/beach the next afternoon. We stayed at the resort most of the whole trip. The only two days we ventured out was when we visited the Mayan ruins and the theme park Xcaret.
