First of all, get to know the hotel zone…
Many of the main tourist activities take place in the hotel zone of the city. In this area, you can find the most luxurious hotels, marinas, boutiques, shopping centers, fine restaurants, and water activities such as diving, snorkeling, boat and submarine tours, etc. Of course, this is where you will find the beaches that characterize the city so much and that place it as one of the most attractive cities to visit. The good times don’t stop here, because there are day and night activities, for children, adults or all ages, activities with friends or family. There are no limits!
That’s not all!
The hotel zone is the main face of the city for visitors, but, it is not the only thing you can visit. If you want to take a little bit of the real Cancun, the one that the locals know and live day by day, don’t hesitate to leave the hotel zone and go downtown. Cancun is a very nocturnal city, that is to say, you can find places open until very night. For this reason, we recommend you walk along Tulum Avenue. Here you will find a good place to eat; afterward, you can allow yourself to walk and explore what is beyond.
