Cancun is a tropical vacation destination known for its pristine white-sand beaches and turquoise waters. Located on Mexico's east coast in the Yucatan peninsula, Cancun enjoys year-round temperate weather that's perfect for enjoying the beach or outdoors. This region of Mexico, known as Quintana Roo, is also home to many important archaeological sites including Coba, Tulum and the Nohoch Mul Pyramid.

Development of the region began in the 1970s when the Mexican government realized the potential for tourism in the peninsula. Since then, Cancun has grown into a world-renowned vacation destination with a 14-mile long hotel zone called Zona Hotelera. The best resorts in Cancun are all located on this thin strip of land.
Cancun is also known for its vibrant nightlife. Perhaps not for the faint of heart, Cancun's nightclub options are tailored towards spring breakers. Classic Cancun clubs include Carlos and Charlies which offers salsa classes three days a week. The quirky Coco Bongo features dozens of go-go dancers and special appearances by entertainers impersonating everyone from Beetlejuice to Spiderman.
As a custom built vacation destination, Cancun is home to some of the best timeshare resorts in the Caribbean. Timeshares in Cancun are a popular alternative to standard hotel accommodations. The most well-known resorts include the Palace Resorts Cancun property and the Westin Lagunamar Ocean Resort. Each offers vacations a home away from home in one of the most picturesque seaside locations in the world.

Besides the incredible beaches, Cancun offers vacationers plenty of opportunities to explore the great outdoors. Visitors of every fitness level can enjoy a variety of activities throughout the region. Go exploring in archaeological ruins, zip line, snorkel in coral reefs or even take a horseback ride. Or, if you're ideal activity is lazing out in soft-white sand, then Cancun won't fall short on that either.
Two additional unique activities are available to those visiting in Cancun: jet-surfing and swimming in cenotes. Cenotes are natural pits or sinkholes which fill with water and form partially submerged pools. Swimming in cenotes gives vacationers the ability to snorkel through stalagmites or even dive in deeper to explore underwater caves.
Vacationers in Cancun can also go snorkeling in some of the most stunning coral reefs in the Americas. At the Cancun Underwater Museum, which consists of over 450 life-sized sculptures created by half a dozen artists, snorkelers can swim and interact with living artwork. From May to September, visitors can snorkel with whale sharks, the largest fish in the world.
Some of the most rewarding attractions in Cancun are the many historically significant archaeological sites. The most famous of these are Chichen Itza, Tulum and the Nohoch Mul Pyramid. Chichen Itza is a nearly 1,000-year-old example of a Mayan-Toltec building and the most visited historical site in Mexico. About 80 miles to the south of Cancun lies the Tulum Ruins. Tulum sits on the ocean and is known for being one of the only walled Mayan cities. Don't miss a chance to climb atop the Nohoch Mul Pyramid at the archaeological site of Coba. It's the second tallest Mayan pyramid in the world.
Cancun boasts a wide array of places to shop, from flea markets to high-end malls offering exclusive products. In typical Cancun fashion, the Forum Cancun shopping mall even boasts a few on-site nightclubs. Once you've perused the island's shops, head to a local restaurant to sample Cancun's finest cuisines.

Cancun boasts a wide array of places to shop, from flea markets to high-end malls offering exclusive products. In typical Cancun fashion, the Forum Cancun shopping mall even boasts a few on-site nightclubs. Once you've perused the island's shops, head to a local restaurant to sample Cancun's finest cuisines. Interesting restaurants are prevalent, including Du Mexique. Featuring a blend of Mayan and French flavors, Du Mexique is sure to impress any foodie in your party.
For some, Cancun is seen as a destination for late night dancing, parties and spring break crowds. But look beyond the wild facade and you'll see a vacation destination rich with history and abundant natural wonders. Beyond the narrow strip known as the Hotel Zone ("Zona Hotelera"), travelers will find a wealth of adventure options such as exploring Mayan ruins, zip lining and snorkeling.
Unique outdoors activities are available in the Quintana Roo region where Cancun is located. Swimming in cenotes is a popular pastime here. Cenotes are partially exposed underwater pools created by sinkholes. The state of Quintana Roo is home to nearly a dozen of these picturesque natural pools.
Another unmissable water adventure: diving among the statues at MUSA. MUSA is a submerged collection of over 450 statues created by artists from all over Mexico. The sculptures also double as a base for coral, helping to rebuilt coral reefs in the area.
Several Cancun day trips to nearby archaeological sites are worth taking if you can spare the time. Chichen Itza, Tulum and the Coba ruins are within a couple hours' drive. There are many excursions and tour packages available which cater to vacationers staying in Cancun, making planning a day trip to one of the archaeological sites a breeze.
Of course, no trip to Cancun would be complete without a visit to one of its clubs. Try the quirky Coco Bongo for a night of dancing and fun amidst a variety of celebrity impersonators. For a sampling of the best nightlife Cancun has to offer, try the Cuncrawl, a whirlwind tour of Cancun's top three clubs.
Cancun offers plenty of ways to get around. Busses are cheap and safe - some are even air conditioned and offer free Wi-Fi. Taxis are also readily available. Travelers should be aware that taxis are not metered. Asking your taxi driver what the fare will be for a particular destination (before you get in the cab) can save you some cash.
Although rental cars are available, almost everything you need will be easily reachable through public transportation or tour packages.
Travelers to Cancun enjoy pleasantly warm temperatures year round. High temperatures range from the low 80s to the low 90s throughout the year, making for perfect beach weather. November to April are the drier months. If you're looking to maximize your beach time, the best time to travel to Cancun is any time in this window.
