Cancun Holiday Deals

A holiday in Cancún will always revolve around the stretches of cushion soft sands that range from the Zona Hotelera to Punta Nizuc eight miles south. Tequila here tends to be slammed not sipped. Those who venture from their hotels a few steps back from Laguna Nichupté will find the real Cancún; a whole lot more cultivated experience but no less raucous.

Essential Information

Bathing in Sun and Water

Beaches are Cancún’s strongest asset and the centre piece of the daytime and nightlife scene. Swimming choices go above and beyond the Caribbean same old. From May till September whale sharks arrive in droves - you can swim with them off the Isla Holbox, part of the Yum Balam Reserve (literally meaning lord jaguar). There’s the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef – the second largest reef in the world and the largest in the northern hemisphere. It’s home to over 500 species of fish and graceful manatees. Things get even cooler: the MUSA Museo Subacuático de Arte is a gallery of underwater stone sculptures in everyday poses and for an ethereal swimming experience try the limestone sinkholes known as cenotes; secret Mayan sanctuaries of water.

Ancient Ruins

Cancún translates to ‘nest of snakes’. This isn’t very reassuring but Mayan mythology revered serpents as the vehicle used by celestial bodies to cross the heavens. They can be found at various Mayan ruins a short distance from Cancún, such as the stairway of Temple of Kukulkan at Chichén Itzá. The pyramid structure concealed in jungle, leads to the heavens and is guarded by serpents carved from stone. More accessible to the south are the ruins of Tulum, set atop 40 metre high cliffs with views of the Caribbean Sea. Cities such as these were not only important trading posts of commodities such as obsidian but epicentres of Mayan civilisation where humans were sacrificed to 'feed' deities.

Yum Balam Reserve and Holbox Island

The Yum Balam Nature Reserve is 154,000 hectares of wetlands and mangrove swamps. You can track big cats jaguar and puma and if you’re really lucky smaller, shier species like margay and ocelot. Isla Pájaros is a pit stop for many Arctic birds migrating south for the winter; it's the northernmost rest point for them before continuing south although there’s plenty that call this place home year round. Holbox Island, just offshore, is poised to receive more and more tourists that come to swim with the whale sharks that arrive in droves to feed mate between June and September.

Explore Cancún

Jutting out into the Gulf of Mexico, it’s still a relatively new player to the table (construction began in 70s) don’t think that it doesn’t have any history. Take a day trip from Cancún to surrounding pre-Colombian walled cities Chichén Itzá and Tulum and learn of the Mayans advanced sciences and technologies. For wildlife, take a trip to the Yum Balam Reserve and swim with whale sharks that arrive to feed and mate. 

Best Time to Travel

Tropical climate: temperatures don’t fluctuate much throughout the year but the wet and dry seasons are pronounced. December to April (winter) is the priciest and most popular time to visit; temperature averages are around the 25 degrees Celsius mark. Beaches are particularly crowded at this time of year. Accommodation and flights are cheaper at the end of peak season. Although hurricane season is officially between June to November, August and October see the brunt of the bad weather. The sea temperature is warm year round thanks to the Yucatán current.
