Cancun is Mexico’s number one holiday destination, with the perfect combination of fascinating history, luxury amenities and exceptional beaches. With the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea brushing up against vast stretches of powdery beaches, you can choose from intimate five-star luxury resorts or more modest beachside accommodation. Visitors can also explore the ecotourism hotspots of Xel-Ha, Xplor and Xcaret, where you can snorkel and swim with dolphins whilst admiring the impressive terrain. In addition to its natural charms, the Cancun area is also home to some fascinating Mayan relics, with the temple complex at Chichen Itza and the archaeological site of Tulum amongst the must-see highlights.
