As one of the most famous Spring Break destinations in the world, Cancún draws in college students in their droves. Thankfully that hectic season is kept mostly to March and April, leaving the rest of the year clear to visit the many attractions that'd suit a family just as much as a solo traveler. In Cancún itself, you’ll find an underwater art museum and beach-bathing sun worshippers. This city on the Yucatán Peninsula is also the gateway to key Mayan sites, including the ruins at Tulum and Chichen Itza. The killer food scene is not to be missed, with everything from 1am street tacos to experimental French dining and more must-try restaurants. In short, here’s how to make the most of Cancún.
