Hotels in Cancun Mexico offer incredible accommodations in a city known for its white sand beaches, turquoise clear waters and lively entertainment. Perhaps one of the most beloved spring break destinations out there, Cancun can make for an outstanding getaway no matter the time of year. Apart from its amazing beaches and electric nightlife, the area is home to some of the most intriguing Mayan ruins in the world, such as those found at Chichén Itzá and Tulum, each of which are, give or take, a 2-hour drive. As you may see below, hotels in Cancun Mexico are some of the most exciting out there to consider. Before we get you to our list of hotels in Cancun Mexico, let’s take a look at some background information on the city to help you along the way.
Cancun, with a population of around 800,00 people, is located on the Yucatán Peninsula. A relatively new city, the area was home to the Mayans, who originally referred to the area as Nizuc, which means “promontory” or “point of grass”. It wasn’t until 1970, when the area had at the time a total population of three caretakers of a coconut plantation, that resort development began. Playa Blanca, which became a Blue Bay hotel, and eventually Temptation Resort, was the first hotel to be built. The first nine hotels were financed by the Mexican government, as investors were reluctant to take risks in the area. From there, tourism became the driving force in what would become a major resort city.
Cancun benefits from a tropical climate, with hot temperatures year-round, while peak precipitation occurs in October. Major attractions include La Isla Shopping Village, Isla Mujeres island, Coco Bongo night club, Chichén Itzá, Puerto Juárez, Playa Tortugas beach, Luxury Avenue boutique mall and The City Nightclub. A spring break epicenter, Cancun absorbs about fifteen percent of international spring break travel. Apart from spring break, the city’s white sand beaches are great for sunbathing, people watching and snorkeling. All the best Mexican foods like fajitas, tacos, burritos, carnitas, empanadas, guacamole and seafood can be had and are a nice remedy to those late night revelries. Popular drinks to keep you cool and help take the edge off are of course margaritas and mojitos, as well as a large list of other refreshing spirits like daiquiris, piña coladas and the banana monkey, which is a chilled concoction of coffee liquor, banana, chocolate and coconut. Now that we have a little background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Cancun Mexico that are sure to light up your eyes and day.
