Why go to Cancun?

On the dreamy, tropical shores of southern Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun has been a huge hit with all types of holidaymakers since the 1970s, when it was first developed into a resort destination to boost tourism.

Cancun’s ace card is its miles of ice-white, powder-soft beaches lapped by the Caribbean Sea. Throw in the fact that its cuisine is one of the world’s most popular, that it’s surrounded by ancient ruins and rainforest-shrouded natural pools, and you’re likely to be packing your bags already.

Cancun is also famous for its raucous party scene. Nap on the beach in between all-day pool parties and late evenings at nightclubs that don’t close until the crack of dawn. There’s something for all tastes, from salsa bars and laid-back lounges to legendary, hands-in-the-air super clubs.
