Sitting on the most easterly tip of Mexico, Cancun has grown remarkably over the last 40 years from a tiny settlement to a thriving city. It is divided into two main sections – the city itself and a long stretch of land connected by bridge to mainland, known as Cancun Island or the ‘hotel zone’. Cancun Island is where the hotels are based, although we also offer a number of hotels further along the coast, south of the airport.
Cancun is blessed with premium coastline, plentiful nightlife and unbelievable value for money – it’s a real party town where you can have a lot of fun. And while it’s styled as The Mexican Caribbean, it’s worth remembering that it is very different from the rest of the Caribbean. You’ll find the beaches are just as beautiful and the sunshine just as bright, but you should also expect a distinctively Latin flavour to the food and the nightlife.
While Cancun comes from Mayan beginnings (and no-one is exactly sure what ‘Cancun’ means) the recent development of the city has seen the population grow through people from other parts of Mexico heading here for the prosperity. The result is a mixture of Mexican traditions and customs, but a culture based around providing excellent service to tourists.
