"Map of Cancun" Hotel Zone Tip by marcmalano

Hotel Zone, Cancún: 20 reviews and 27 photos


Fondest memory: Cancun is divided into two areas - Downtown and the Hotel Zone (an island shaped like a '7'). The east side of the island has more waves than the north side, which is protected by Isla Mujeres...and during high tide some beaches may not be accessible. Staying at a hotel located in the northeast corner (near the convention center) will give you easy access within walking distance to some of the best clubs and restaurants in the area.
There are a number of shopping malls in the Hotel Zone, but you will find better prices downtown. Our favorite shopping mall in the hotel zone is the new La Isla Shopping Village.
