Singled out for its sumptuously soft sands, spectacular azure Caribbean Sea vistas and intriguing native heritage, it is little wonder that Cancun on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula is considered to be one of the world’s most celebrated holiday destinations.

A superb choice for families with its plethora of beach-fringed resorts and a wide range of fun local activities, including the exhilarating eco-logical theme parks at Xplor, Xcaret and Xel-Ha, a wealth of exceptional luxury five-star resorts ensures Cancun is also a premier choice for those seeking a romantic break for two.

Better still, Cancun offers a dose of culture for those with a keen interest in Mexico’s fascinating Mayan heritage, with visits to Tulum and Chichen Itza blending history with some of the most splendid settings to be enjoyed anywhere in the Caribbean.

Packing tips

A tropical holiday destination that can combine relaxing on sumptuous white sands and exploring great Mayan ruins, Cancun is an intriguing place. This intrigue means that you need to be vigilant when it comes to packing, don’t forget anything and don’t pack too much!

Most of the resorts in Cancun are all-inclusive, and this can mean that you spend most of your days eating, drinking and swimming. Bliss, right? Well yes, but while they do sell most sundries, a lot of it will be overpriced. This means that anything from prescriptions to aspirin to sun cream should be stocked up before you leave. With such beautiful coral around, a snorkel and fins might be a good thing to put in the suitcase and maybe a lilo for the pool!

Start your packing with a couple of bathing suits and something to cover-up on the beach. Casual is the name of the game here, so bring t-shirts, shorts and tank tops for the day with pants and long sleeve shirts for the cooler evenings. Day trips are common in Cancun so bring a bag for those occasions along with comfortable walking shoes and a sun hat; Chichèn Itza is a two and a half hour trip. Don’t forget the insect repellent!

Essential Information

  • Capital-Mexico City is the capital of Mexico and that is a two-hour flight from Cancun. It is an impressive and bustling city but it doesn’t quite have the beautiful beaches of Cancun.
  • Currency-The Mexican peso is the currency. You can change money whilst you are there or use a bureau de change before departing. US dollars are often more useful than pound sterling.
  • Language-Ever since colonisation of Mexico by the Spanish, the official language of the country has been Spanish and this is what you will hear in Cancun.
  • Time Zone-GMT -6 hours.


Cancun’s tropical climate means that the temperature tends not to fluctuate much between months and seasons; although there are rainy seasons. Christmas and New Year is peak season for the Mexican east coast resort as people jet out for some winter sun. Easter and spring break are also immensely popular.

The high season tends to be from January to March and it stays busy, although it is cheaper and quieter, then until the end of July. Hurricane season is September to early-November before a brief pick up ahead of the festive period.

June, with a 28ºC average temperature, is the warmest month and January (although still a pleasant 23ºC) the coldest. It is the rain you need to look out for though and September has almost 230 millimeters on average. Another bonus is the warm sea temperature, the Caribbean Sea reaching up to 29ºC.
