Think of Cancun and aquamarine waters and white sand beaches come to mind. Famously known for its lively resorts, there’s so much more to this popular destination on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. Located on the coast and surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, you’ll find Mayan culture, Yucatecan comfort food and plenty of hidden gems.

British Airways flies direct to Cancun so you can be relaxing in the sunshine before you know it. Make the most of your holiday and experience both sides of the city — the famous Hotel Zone, with 19km of white-sand beaches and the downtown area with its mix of lively markets, shops and restaurants infused with local flavour. Get a taste of the legendary nightlife or go snorkeling in Punta Nizuc and see turtles and starfish amongst the coral reefs. Take a day trip to nearby Tulum and see ancient Mayan ruins and artifacts at the Museo Maya de Cancun — there’s so much to experience and discover on a holiday in Cancun.
