Where to Stay
Cancun is a true party town and boasts a thriving nightlife scene, from live music performances to trendy cinema screenings, chic cocktail bars and all-night dancing. If you love this type of bustling scene in addition to shopping, staying directly in Cancun in a great choice. However, for a quieter getaway, check out hotels near Cancun in Playa del Carmen or Riveria Maya. This way, you’ll still be close to the action, but have an option to escape into tranquility.
How to Get to Cancun
The second busiest airport in Mexico, the Cancun International Airport, is the easiest way to fly into the city. To get to your destination from the airport, pre-arrange an authorized taxi or car to pick you up, as city taxis are not allowed to pick up passengers at the airport. You can also opt for public transportation by taking the ADO or Riviera-operated buses (Tip: have pesos handy—other forms of currency are not preferred). Generally, Cancun is known as an easily navigable city by bus or taxi during the entirety of your stay.
From day dates to hot nights, Cancun is brimming with romance just waiting to be explored by adventuresome pairs.
