Spending some days in Cancun is a great experience for those adventure seekers, also for those looking for a moment of relaxation. Like the rest of Mexico, there are so many must-see places to visit and explore, and here are some of the best things I experience on my time in Cancun.
Moving through Cancun is very simple, but as a first-time visitor, the first challenge you face upon arrival at the airport is finding your transportation or your driver to take you to your hotel from Cancun airport. It is not provided by the airlines in Mexico, so you have a few options.
Before traveling to Cancun I decide to investigate the different transportation options to move around Cancun and finally decided to get a private transportation service. Cancun Airport Transportation is a service that provides transportation from the airport to the main hotels in Cancun and vice versa. Believe me, it can be a lifesaver if you travel with much luggage or just want to travel stress-free. It is better to book your transportation service in advance, besides it is cheaper than getting one at your arrival, it can help you plan your itinerary better.
Cancun has several activities along with the city, so the best option is to look for accommodation in the hotel zone due to the perfect location. There are just too many restaurants nearby and beautiful beaches to go swim and explore. Also, Cancun International airport is located just a short distance from the tourist zone of the city, just about 15-20 min. driving.
There are also some cheap Airbnb options outside the hotel zone, but I think the comfort worth some extra money. There are several ways to go to your hotel, either you prefer to take a taxi, a bus or get private transportation in advance. I will personally recommend the private transportation options since I use them on my days in Cancun.
There are many beaches in Cancun that it is really hard to decide which one to visit, especially if you have limited time. In the beginning, Delfines Beach, Langosta Beach, and Marlin Beach were on my Cancun bucket list but I also add Puerto Morelos after some recommendations. I hardly recommend asking the locals for tourist attractions or not-so-popular beaches if you want to avoid the crowds.
Puerto Morelos was a surprise discovery even though it was outside the city and was a little difficult to reach. I reached it with a Cancun Airport Shuttle that picked me up from my hotel. Since there are not many visitors during the day, Puerto Morelos is still considered a virgin beach but it already counts with a beach club so you can enjoy the pool.
Cancun is very famous for its nightlife, one of the best in Latin America. With a great variety of bars and discotheques with different types of music. Of course, I couldn’t leave Cancun without visiting the famous Coco Bongo and experiencing the show. I recommend going early since sometimes the line gets endless and I have to say that the light and sound show is totally worth it. There is just a lot of fun from start to finish and the open bar is not expensive at all.
There are other very famous bars like La Vaquita with a peculiar decoration, like a stable, with cows everywhere, and Dady’O with a 70s vibe.
Once in Cancun, it is very easy to access different points in the Riviera Maya. I was very curious about Tulum and Playa del Carmen since those destinations are the most popular among the tourist. Even more than Cancun itself.
They are really close to Cancun and you can go by bus, taxi, public or private transport. Since I was decided on private transportation, I use the Cancun Airport Transfers option to go first to Tulum and then Playa del Carmen. Both have a special charm, very different from Cancun, I just wish I had more time to explore them.
As a final thought, Cancun is a destination that I especially like, with different options to enjoy and have a relaxed time so give it a chance and take your towel.
