Cancún
Mexico
By Vanessa Brown

Cancún is inarguably one of Mexico’s greatest vacation destinations. Located on the Yucatan Peninsula where the Caribbean Ocean meets the Gulf of Mexico the city enjoys a tropical climate that makes it a good choice any time of year. Guests arrive daily from around the world to enjoy a rich diversity of activities that includes nature, nightlife, history, culture, food, fun, and sand.

WhatsCheaper.com makes it easy to book your vacation to Cancún today. The city can be accessed by Cancún International Airport (CUN).  Vacationers can book their flight by following this link (https://www.whatscheaper.com/flight.php).  WhatsCheaper.com can also assist with booking hotel reservations. We have a list of top choices which include wonderful accommodation suitable for everything from honeymoons and romantic getaways to Spring Break to family trips in the summer. Please follow this link to WhatsCheaper.com’s hotel finder; you are just moments away from wonderful deals and a great vacation (https://www.whatscheaper.com/hotel.php).

Cancún is a planned vacation destination begun in 1974 as a collaborative effort between the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) and the National Fund for Tourism Development (Mexico). A sleepy fishing village surrounded by lush greenery was turned into a tourism mecca. Because the city was planned with a purpose in mind guests will find that the layout is both intuitive and somewhat familiar. Most hotels are located in the Tourism District just a short ride from the airport. At WhatsCheaper.com we suggest that guests spring for the short taxi ride from the airport to the hotels. Please be aware that it is up to you as the rider to negotiate the price with the taxi driver prior to getting into the cab. Guests will find that most hotels have small convenience stores either at the hotel or nearby, it is essential that you use bottled water for anything that requires water go in your mouth such as tooth brushing and you will want to have some on hand. It is also important to buy some extra toilet paper to take with you when you venture out of the hotel and Tourism District. As the old saying goes, better to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it. Those who book their stay at one of WhatsCheaper.com’s many all inclusive resorts will find these things on hand at the resort.

Though planned in the recent past, Cancún is steeped in a rich Mayan history that draws both novices and experts from around the world. Guests can easily take a day trip to ruins, such as Chichen Itza and Tulum, located not far from the city to enjoy exploring the ruins and learning more of Mayan culture and daily life.   At WhatsCheaper.com we suggest that these trips be arranged prior to arrival in Cancún; this is the best way to get a good deal, stay safe, and have a great time. 

In addition to exploring the ruins there are many other short trips that can be planned prior to departure including horseback riding, ATV excursions, dolphin swims, snorkeling, golf and many more. It can often be hard to decide on a trip or two when there is limited time WhatsCheaper.com strongly suggests just a couple not-to-be-missed experiences. Dolphinaris gives guests the opportunity to swim with the dolphins for a reasonable rate. For those who desire more time there is also a package called Trainer For A Day that is a once in a lifetime experience. Similarly Xel-ha is also an outstanding day choice.  A model of ocean conservation mixed with tourism this facility is the largest natural aquatic park in the world and sets the gold standard in ocean wildlife interaction. Xel-ha features snuba, snorkeling, tubing, and flying zip lines.

After packing all of these wonderful activities into your daytime hours, the thrill is still not over. Cancún features excellent food, drink and entertainment options. Guests are welcome to indulge in everything from world-famous chef designed 5 star meals to a raucous good time at Senor Frog’s. Cancún features something for every budget. For those who choose to book at an all inclusive resort guests can sample fare from around the world and have a culinary adventure without worries about the bill. For those who enjoy an exciting evening WhatsCheaper.com suggests that guests do not book an all-inclusive during Spring Break. At this time of year some of the biggest contemporary acts around the world are booked in Cancún and for a minimal fee guests can get dinner, a show and unlimited drinks all night at some of the hottest clubs on the planet.

Cancún is a wonderful choice as a honeymoon destination. For those that choose to stay close to the resort couples can relax on the beach, enjoy some water sports or hang out by the pool. Most all-inclusive resorts also offer wonderful extras such as couples massage, aromatherapy, and various other spa activities.
