In this post, you will learn a lot about the wonders of the city, and everything you need to know before traveling to Cancun.

About Cancun

Cancun is a small city that was mainly a fishing town in its early years.

Confirmed by jungle, sea, lagoon, a bit of history, and people from practically all over the world, Cancun has become one of the most multicultural tourist sites in the world.

You will find the famous Cancun Airport in this city, so chances you will see this landmark when you arrive, no matter where you come from.

Before Traveling to Cancun, You Should Know…

Cancun has hundreds of beautiful sites to visit along your tour; however, it is essential to know that just as there are sites for the whole family, you can also find beaches for adults only and hotels in this category; so we recommend you take your time and research the sites you are about to visit or the hotels where you want to stay.

You should also know that Cancun is very close to the main cities of the Riviera Maya, such as Tulum and Playa del Carmen, where you can visit spectacular pristine beaches worthy of an Instagram post.

The distance from Cancun to Playa del Carmen is 40 minutes, and from Cancun to Tulum, from 2 to 2.30 hours (depending on your route and the stops you make).

Transportation in Cancun

While Cancun is a small city, it still has a massive tourist influx, and private transportation is not the most advisable to move around the city.

There are several ways to move around the city such as Car Rental Cancun Airport (one of the best known), Cancun Airport Transportation, shared transfer, local cabs, and ADO buses; however, it is advisable to travel by car, especially if you want to move around the city freely.

Lodging in Cancun

The lodging and accommodation options in Cancun are very diverse; you can stay in 5 diamond hotels in Cancun's hotel zone, a rental house, Airbnb, or a hostel within the city.

The best method of accommodation will undoubtedly be the one that suits your budget and travel style.

Cancun Attractions

Getting to know Cancun will surely take you a couple of days, but exploring its tourist attractions and enjoying each of its activities may take you much longer than you think.

Leaving aside that Cancun is a tiny city, you should know that there are many things you can do in the city and its surroundings, such as visiting the Mayan ruins of El Meco and El Rey.

Near Cancun, there is also the route of cenotes on the way to Playa del Carmen. Suppose you decide to venture a little further. In that case, you can visit the archaeological site of Chichen Itza or the ruins of Tulum in the archaeological site of Zama, where you can enjoy an incomparable view of the Caribbean Sea on one of the most beautiful cliffs in front of a paradisiacal beach.

If staying in the city is your thing, the nightclubs, restaurants, beaches, and plazas have more to offer than you think.

To Conclude...
