The gateway to an ancient culture

Cancun

Cancun, in the wonderful Yucatan peninsula of Mexico, is an area of rich cultural heritage. Alongside the high-rise hotels and world-renowned nightclubs of Cancun city, ancient ruins show Mexico's pre-Columbian history on the Riviera Maya.

Swim in the crystal-clear Caribbean Sea, before stretching out on the endless, sundrenched white sand beaches on holidays in Cancun. Visit the incredible Mayan monuments and temples, including one of the Seven Wonders of the World – Chichén Itzá. Take a leisurely dip in the legendary waterlogged sinkholes or cenotes. Or snorkel with the myriad of brightly-coloured fish around the spectacular barrier reef. Indulge yourself with luxury shopping at chic boutiques, or visit a mall with its own nightclub. Drink Margaritas at the many pumping bars and clubs in the Hotel Zone, before watching the sunrise with new friends. More than your average Caribbean holiday, Cancun has a lot more to offer than relaxing on a beach – so get out there and explore.
