Pristine white sand beaches, buzzing nightlife, thrilling eco-adventure and awe-inspiring ancient monuments await travellers on holidays in Cancun. Stay at an All Inclusive resort in the flashy Hotel Zone, or immerse yourself in a bygone culture on the Riviera Maya.

Relax on idyllic sandy beaches on the Yucatán Peninsula. Stay at one of our beachfront hotels on All Inclusive holidays to Cancun.

Chichen-Itza

Visit the ancient capital of the Mayan empire, now a UNESCO World Heritage site. You’ll instantly recognize the famous image of the Temple of Kukulcan – the stepped pyramid. Most excursions also include a stop at a cenote for a swim, where you can explore the caves and caverns of these unique natural wonders. If you're staying near Tulum and have less time on your hands you can still enjoy the Mayan experience by visiting the archeological site at Tulum instead. For a bit more action, there are many adventure parks in the area – Xcaret, Xel-ha or Xplor – each offers a different experience including zip lines, snorkeling, caves, aquariums, cenotes and more.

Idyllic white sand beaches line the Yucatan peninsula; head back to your hotel after your excursion and relax. Some of my favourite ones are Maroma in Riviera Maya or Xcalacoco Beach in Playa del Carmen. In Cancun itself, stunning white beaches and turquoise seas line the hotel zone.

Many of the hotels we have carefully selected are All Inclusive, so I’ll generally eat at the resort I’m staying in. Many feature either a Mexican restaurant, my favourite is at Secrets The Vine, or have a Mexican theme night – giving you the opportunity to sample the local fare. A speciality worth trying, particularly if you like seafood, is 'ceviche' and I also enjoy 'mole poblano' washed down with a local cerveza.

Coco Bongo

For a real night out, look to Cancun’s hotel zone and head straight to Coco Bongo (there’s also one in Playa del Carmen). This unique venue, often compared to a night out in Las Vegas, features acrobats as good as Cirque du Soleil, shows as enthralling as Thriller and live bands regularly doing a Beyoncé. Senior Frogs is also a fun and relaxed place for drinks and dinner. Although it’s not my drink of choice, when in Cancun try some tequila or mescal (easily recognizable by the pickled worm sitting at the bottom of the bottle!).

If you're staying in Riviera Maya I head to 5th Avenue, in Playa del Carmen, for a bit of shopping and then stop for dinner and drinks. I go to Ah Cacao Chocolate Café and treat myself to its addictive chocolate and coffee direct from the Mayanlands.
