One of the most famous beach destinations in the world, Cancun is a tropical paradise with crystal clear turquoise waters, white sand beaches, a vibrant nightlife, resorts, shops, fascinating nearby tourist attractions and much more. Cancun stretches 16 miles along some of the world’s most inviting beaches. Whether you are looking for crowded, action-filled beaches packed with water sports activities or a quieter, relaxing beach environment, Cancun can meet your needs. You will find unlimited opportunities for snorkeling, diving, water skiing or deep sea fishing. Book a room at one of Cancun’s many all-inclusive beachside resorts for a week of pampering and relaxation, take an excursion to experience the area’s rich Mayan history (Tulum and Chichen Itza are nearby), swim with the dolphins, visit the Xel-ha or Xcaret natural wonders parks, take a short ferry ride to Isla Mujeres (which has gorgeous beaches), take a jungle tour, or much more. After an active day, take a nap and head out to the Cancun restaurants and nightclubs for bustling nightlife. Or just sit back on a lounge chair on the beach and listen to the waves softly lap onto the shore.

If you are planning to visit Cancun during spring break, beware that college students invade the area and the noise level increases dramatically. Depending on the type of spring vacation you want, that could be a good thing or a bad thing. Whether you are staying in Cancun or nearby Playa del Carmen and the Riveria Maya, be sure to ask about the spring break atmosphere at your hotel before booking this time of year.

Cancun has hotels and resorts for every budget, from exclusive luxury resorts to modest, affordable accommodations. And many travel sites offer package deals that make this Caribbean resort area one of the most popular vacation destinations in the world.
