Cancun is a planned paradise, and this is evident when travelling along its enormous costera (coastal road), where some of the largest hotels in the country are found. What was once a fishing town is today a city full of life and opportunities. The entertainment options here are designed to satisfy all interests, and that’s why you have a choice between spending the afternoon shopping around or practicing extreme sports in a thematic park in the area.
Cancun is probably the most vibrant and cosmopolitan city in the Caribbean and its culinary offer reflects it. In this city, you can find anything you want, in any form and for all preferences. There will be Yucatec food, naturally, as in the whole peninsula, but you will also find – among many other – excellent Thai, Italian or Argentine options. From a sushi bar to a world-class restaurant, in any one of the most exclusive hotels, in Cancun the right question to ask when one is hungry is simply: what do you want to eat today?
North of Cancun, towards the spectacular island of Holbox, the Yum Balam Flora and Fauna Protection Area is located; it is a reserve of 150 thousand hectares that extends over the island, the lagoon and the surrounding mangroves, which, in its jungle area protects five threatened feline species, including the puma and the jaguar. Given the astonishing diversity in the area’s marine life, during the summer it is also possible to see the largest guest: the whale shark. Currently, transportation to the watching area also departs from Cancun, from Punta Sam.
In the minds of a good many people all over the world, Cancun is, almost by definition, what it means to be a “great beach destination”.

Besides the kilometers of white beach that surround Nichupte lagoon, the city also offers the paradises in the islands. In Holbox: fishing vibe and virgin sands; in Isla Pajaros, immediate nature; and in Isla Mujeres, all the romance of the Caribbean.
