Cancun Hotel Zone
Although the beach ambiance and vacation atmosphere are found throughout the destination, the true essence is in the Cancun Hotel Zone. It is here, where you find the large resorts, as well as small hotels and hostels, but no matter what type of hotel you choose, they all have in common being a few meters from the beach.
The Cancun Hotel Zone is 23 km of coastline between the Caribbean Sea and the Nichupté Lagoon, the quintessential space for most of the destination's tourist attractions: beaches, restaurants, party zone, water sports, beach clubs, golf courses and much more. Everything this important tourist destination is known for is here.
Hotels in the lagoon
Among all the options of Cancun resorts, those located on the lagoon are an affordable option with great charm, even if you do not have the Caribbean Sea in front of you. Towards the Nichupté lagoon you will have a view of the mangroves to appreciate the surrounding nature and beautiful sunsets. You can also enjoy activities in the lagoon such as jet skiing, kayaking, paddle boarding and more. In addition, just across Kukulcan Boulevard you have access to several public beaches and beach clubs to experience the best of both worlds.
Hotels in the Caribbean Sea
This is the reason for Cancun's fame and why it is one of the most popular beach destinations in Mexico and the world. There are a lot of Cancun resorts options, and surely, some of them have what you are looking for: infinity pools, children's areas, gastronomic experiences, spas, convention centers and conference rooms, spectacular spaces for weddings; there is nothing you can't find in the Cancun resorts.
Accommodation only or all-inclusive
A very important topic in your trip to Cancun is the type of hotel to choose according to its plan: accommodation only or all-inclusive. If you are looking to take advantage of all its surroundings in the parks, tours and excursions, it means that you will not spend much time at the hotel, so you may just be looking for a place to rest after an intense day of zip-lines, cenotes, snorkeling and other activities in the destination. Now, if what you are looking for is to focus on the beach, do activities like kayaking, jet skiing or parasailing in the Caribbean Sea right in front of you, enjoy unlimited drinks, cocktails and food by the pool, it is best to choose an all-inclusive that will keep you from worrying about anything but enjoying the facilities and amenities of the hotel.
