Explore Cancun and beyond

Cancun Hotel Zone

Cancun Hotel Zone

Experience the electric nightlife of Cancun’s Hotel Zone – starting with a dazzling show at the renowned Coco Bongo club. By day, jump on a bus or stroll to one of the Zone’s many malls – including the charming La Isla shopping village, with its Venetian-style canals. Or pick up some souvenirs at a craft market. Stretch out on sugar white sands, snorkel in crystalline blue waters or try adrenaline pumping water sports. On romantic holidays, gaze at the stunning sunset over Nichupte Lagoon.

Playa del Carmen

Playa del Carmen

Sink your toes into the softest white sands and cool off in turquoise waters at a breathtakingly beautiful 10km of beach. Soak up the lively ambience at this bustling hub of the Riviera Maya. Experience the buzz of La Quinta Avenida at night, when the sound of mariachi musicians entertaining diners mingles with the throb of dance music from open-air bars. Smaller versions of the Hotel Zone’s renowned Coco Bongo and Señor Frog’s nightclubs can be found on 12th Street.

Riviera Maya

Riviera Maya

Relax on sugar white sands fringed with palm trees and tropical coves. Leave the hustle and bustle of the Hotel Zone behind and enjoy the calmer pace of the Riviera Maya’s towns and villages, including X-caret, Tulúm, Playa del Carmen, Playacar and Puerto Aventuras. Rich in natural beauty, the Riviera Maya is a playground for adventure. Snorkel around the Northern Hemisphere’s largest barrier reef, swim in a cenote or experience cave diving. Stay at a traditional Mexican-style retreat overlooking the beach.

Puerto Morelos

Puerto Morelos

Visit the quaint fishing village of Puerto Morelos, just 25 minutes’ drive from Cancun’s Hotel Zone. Or stay at one of our nearby luxury hotels and hire bikes to cycle to the village. Climb to the top of the lighthouse for magnificent sea views and photo opportunities. Tuck into freshly caught seafood at a charming local restaurant. Relax on stunning white beaches lapped by azure surf. And the adventurous simply must try snorkelling around the spectacular Mesoamerican Barrier Reef.



Escape the bustle of Playa del Carmen and catch a ferry to the island of Cozumel. Explore the delightful town of San Miguel de Cozumel and learn about its history at Cozumel Museum. Pick up some souvenirs at the array of craft and jewellery shops. Stop for lunch at the world’s smallest Hard Rock Café, or enjoy a refreshing Corona at a local bar. Discover an amazing underwater world with snorkelling or diving around the colourful surrounding reefs.
