Cancún Travel Guide: 2,027 reviews and 4,113 photos


When Hans and I decided upon CANCUN to spend two glorious weeks in the sun, friends and family told us Cancun had a reputation as a party town.
As we wanted to do and see things and not just lie on the beach all day, we discovered the area had lots to offer.
With its mix of tropical beaches, ancient ruins and modern resorts, this area is simply the perfect vacation destination for everyone - couples -- families -- friends and lovers (that's us).
Modern Cancun offers wonderful white sand beaches and turquoise sea, great restaurants, lively clubs and activities of every type imaginable.
We visited Playa Del Carmen, mythic Isla Mujeres, Xcaret - an amazing eco-park, the ruins of Tulum and Chichen-Itza ( experiencing the enduring history of the ancient Mayan civilization).
So let Hans and I take you on a virtual tour of Cancun --- PARADISE!

    Wonderful Cancún travel pages! Certainly a great place to visit and explore not only for its beautiful beaches. The ruins of Tulum and Chichen-Itza certainly attract us a lot especially the Kukulcan Pyramid. We hope to visit Cancún one day if we have the opportunity. ~ho & pang

    I see you enjoyed your stay in Cancun very much. I wonder what the ancient Mayas would say to the present-day Xcaret.:) Excellent pictures on your page, as ever.

    I'm not a big fan of cancun, but head a little out of town and there's some great smaller resorts...
