Holidays to Cancun

Overview of Cancun holidays

Cancun is a marvellous base from which holidaymakers can plan and enjoy a holiday that takes in many of the sight of the Yucatan Peninsula. However, holidays in Cancun also offers a wide variety of experiences to visitors, from a pulsating night life to a global reputation for water sports both of which are high on the list of reasons to go.

There are more than 14 miles of beach in Cancun and most of it is sufficiently white and powdery to meet the expectations of any beach enthusiast. This also means that water sports are high on the agenda for many visitors and there are many professionally organised activities to enjoy including snorkelling, scuba diving and sailing. Snorkelling is the thing to do for visitors who want a view of the Great Mesoamerican Reef and one of the top places to go is Punta Cancun, where guides promise encounters with many colourful species.

For those on holidays in Cancun the lagoon system around Cancun offers plenty of opportunities for fly fishing, although sport fishing is a high profile pastime that many people in the area enjoy all year round, with catches varying according to the season.

Getting away from the beaches is an opportunity to take a look at the history and relics of the Mayan culture and Cancun holidays offer much for visitors in this regard. Most hotels can organise tours to visit many of the most popular sites and the renowned site of Chichen Itza is about 117 miles away and its tag as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World draws many visitors along to explore. The Pyramid of Kukulcan in particular is a major attraction for many as a tour stop during holidays in Cancun.

Closer to Cancun, another charming stop for a tour is Puerto Morelos, which is about 22 miles out of town. This fishing village draws attention for its natural beauty and many travellers enjoy ecotourism trips in the region, while there is also a thriving scene in water sports.

Back in Cancun there is sure to be some sort of a party going on for those visitors who want to keep on going and the night club scene in the hotel zone offers lively evenings, with other attractions including light and laser shows, acrobatic displays and dancing and music of all descriptions.
