The Yucatan peninsula’s most famous destination is Cancun. An all-inclusive resort ensures that travelers never have to leave their hotel premises. The city is composed of two main areas: the traditional downtown area, El Centro, and Zona Hotelera, a long, beachfront strip of high-rise hotels, nightclubs, shops, and restaurants.
You can find endless activities in Cancun such as dolphin encounters, jet skiing, and paragliding. Or you could relax for hours by the beach with a good book and listen to the waves roll in.
Cancun is the perfect hub for those wanting to venture out to other areas of the Yucatan peninsula. Low-cost transportation makes it easy to travel to nearby cities.
Tulum is a sleepy, super-chill beach town with its own dose of hip. It’s about a 2-hour drive from Cancun. People visit for yoga getaways, endless beach days and views of the stunning Tulum ruins nearby.
