In Cancún, it's all about the classic combination of sun, sea and sand. The sun shines down all across Cancún, so it's the spots by the beach that hotels compete for. Never mind that hotel prices in central Cancún are a fraction of what they are on the coastal hotel strips, the powdery beaches backed by glamorous all-inclusives are Cancún’s main asset, and it’s hard to come to one of the largest resorts in all the Americas and not want a view of, or at least immediate access to, that sparkling blue Caribbean Sea just outside your window.
There are two main zones, the Zona Hotelera on a long sandy isthmus south-east of central Cancún, with every shape and size of resort and most of the nightlife, and the slightly quieter, more refined Playa Mujeres area to the northeast. And a world apart, the high-end Isla Mujeres are a boat ride away from the latter. Living up to its reputation as North America's ultimate spring break hotspot, the selection of sleeps in Cancún is vast. Relax, we’ve got you covered. We've handpicked the best boutique, family and adult-only hotels and resorts to make picking the right hotel as easy as pie.
