The Best Vacations in Cancun, Mexico 

Cancun: a name that resonates as a synonym of ideal vacations in the ears of travelers from all over the world. This paradisiacal destination, located on the Mexican Caribbean coast, is famous for its crystal-clear waters, its festive atmosphere and a tourist offer that can satisfy the most demanding of visitors.  

If you’re planning your next vacation, here’s why Cancun should be on your radar and how you can make your experience even more special by taking advantage of Barceló’s discounts and coupons. 

When is it best to travel to Cancun? 

Although this destination is close to the tropics and you might think that any season is good, it’s helpful to know that Cancun has a dry season and a rainy season. The rainy season lasts from the end of May until November, and although the weather can be unpredictable, it generally is. 

Probably the best months to visit would be April and May. During these months, there is usually less rain and it is not high season, which means you could avoid large crowds. However, be aware that some beaches may have sargassum, which tarnishes the sea a bit. This problem is a result of climate change. 

Why visit Cancun? 

Cancun is blessed with a tropical climate that ensures sunny days almost all year round. Perfect for those fleeing the cold and looking for a sweet escape to the warm beaches of the Caribbean. 

The warmth of the locals is something that does not go unnoticed. Always ready to help and with a smile, you will feel right at home. 

Recommendations for your trip to Cancun, Mexico? 

  • Before traveling, it would be a good idea to buy a SIM card with mobile data; we usually use Phonect. Avoid changing money at the airport; rather change your dollars or any other currency at CI Banco or Banamex, as they usually offer better rates. 
  • If you plan to explore beyond Cancun, along the Riviera Maya, consider renting a car. To go to downtown Cancun, you can take the RI – R2 bus and then move by cab once you are in Downtown, because taking a cab directly from the hotel zone to downtown can be quite a bit more expensive. 
  • Make your all-inclusive hotel reservation well in advance to secure a place. Do your research and ask in forums about the costs of public transportation in Cancun to avoid overpaying. 
  • If you are traveling with children or seniors, all-inclusive hotels in the north of the hotel zone may be a more comfortable option. 

Where to eat? 

Lorenzillo’s: A must for seafood lovers. Here you can enjoy the freshest lobster in an atmosphere that is pure relaxed luxury. 

La Parrilla: For an authentic Mexican flavor, La Parrilla offers everything from tacos al pastor to margaritas that will leave you wanting more. 

Best places to visit in Cancun 

Cancun is not only famous for its spectacular beaches, but also for a great variety of interesting places to explore during your stay. Here is a list of some of the best places you should definitely consider visiting to make the most of your trip: 

Dolphin Beach 

This is one of the most popular and beautiful beaches in Cancun. Not only can you enjoy the white sand and turquoise blue water, but it is also a great place to take memorable pictures. It is known for the big “CANCUN” sign where everyone takes pictures. 

The Mayan Museum of Cancun 

For those interested in history and culture, the Mayan Museum offers an excellent opportunity to learn about the region’s pre-Columbian past. The museum houses an impressive collection of Mayan artifacts and is located in the heart of the hotel zone, easy to access between a visit to the beach and dinner. 

El Rey Archaeological Zone

Located in the hotel zone, this is a small but fascinating Mayan archaeological site. Ideal for those who like to combine a little history with their beach vacation. The iguanas that inhabit the site are almost as famous as the ruins and are very accustomed to visitors. 

Isla Contoy National Park 

If you love nature, this national park is a must-see. It is a protected island that serves as home to many species of bird and marine life. Only a limited number of people are allowed to enter per day, so your experience will be quiet and exclusive. 

Cancun Interactive Aquarium 

A fun and educational option for families or anyone interested in marine life. At the Interactive Aquarium you can swim with dolphins, feed sharks and learn a lot about the marine ecosystem of the Caribbean.
