The Best Hotels in Cancun Mexico

 

Hotels in Cancun  offer incredible accommodations in a city known for its white sand beaches, its turquoise clear waters and its lively entertainment. Arguably the world’s best college spring break destination, 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 interesting Mayan ruins in the world. Chichén Itzá and Tulum, each about a 2-hour drive from Cancun, are worthwhile destinations to see such Maya architecture. Hotels in Cancun  are some of the most exciting out there to consider. Before we get you to hotels in Cancun, let’s take a look at some background information on the area to help you along the way.

A relatively new city, Cancun was once home to the Mayans. The Mayans originally referred to the area as Nizuc, which means “promontory” or “point of grass”. It wasn’t until 1970, when the area was populated by three coconut plantation caretakers, that resort development  began. Playa Blanca, which became a Blue Bay hotel and eventually Temptation Resort, was the first hotel to be built. Cancun’s first nine hotels were financed by the Mexican government, as investors were reluctant to take risks. From there, tourism became the driving force in what would become a major resort city.

Cancun, with a population of around 800,00 people, is located on the Yucatán Peninsula. The area 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 accounts for 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. Mexican foods such as fajitas, tacos, burritos, carnitas, empanadas, guacamole and seafood make for great accompaniments to late-night revelries. Popular drinks include margaritas, mojitos, daiquiris, piña coladas and the banana monkey, which is a chilled drink made with coffee liquor, banana, chocolate and coconut. Now that we have a little background information on the area, it’s time for hotels in Cancun that are sure to help make for an unforgettable experience.
