Cancún remains an immensely popular destination for tourists from all over the world, and for good reason! This vibrant hub of Mexican culture offers shimmering beaches, lively nightlife, rich history, and so much more. The area's tropical glory is best enjoyed from the comfort of our Cancún vacation rentals, so settle in for your stay and explore this city's delights.
This corner of paradise sits on the edge of the Yucatan Peninsula, a part of sunny Mexico that juts out into the Caribbean and hosts some of the country's most beloved attractions. Cancún itself sits just north of its neighboring beach town, Playa del Carmen, which is full of resorts, historic sights, and gorgeous beaches. Cozumel's cruise-friendly shores are about 70 miles southeast of Cancún.
Whether you're a Cancún veteran or a first-time visitor, you'll find plenty to entertain and delight you here. Enjoy the Caribbean sunshine with a day at Xcaret Park, an eco-theme park where you can swim or float the river. While every beach in Cancún is beautiful, Playa Delfines' distinct lack of hotels and businesses make it particularly enticing. If you're looking for a more swim-friendly beach, try Playa Tortugas, where the jewel-blue waters are a little calmer.
Cancún's Mayan ruins are a point of local pride. El Rey Archaeological Zone boasts several large stone ruins (including a pyramid) and is certainly worth a visit - perhaps after a picnic at the nearby Playa Delfines. Other ruins, like the famous Chichen Itza, are an easy day trip away and offered by many local tour companies. After a day of exploring, peruse your restaurant options in downtown or hit the clubs in Zona Hotelera.
From the beaches to the culture and beyond, Cancún's high energy attracts and mesmerizes visitors. Save your spot at one of our Cancún vacation rentals and see what all the buzz is about!
