Stay in one of our Holiday Inn® Cancún hotels and in no time you’ll be dipping your toes in the turquoise Caribbean seas stretched along the resort’s buzzing Hotel Zone.
Our Cancún hotels make it easy for you to explore the famous white-sand beaches of this Mexican resort. Follow local families to Playa Caracol, on the island’s north side, where kids can splash about in calm, shallow seas. The resorts’ eastern beaches face the open Caribbean Sea, where the waves are better suited for watersports like parasailing or tubing. Hop on a bus or a cab and head southward to the more secluded sands of Playa Delfines. Guests at our hotels in Cancún can take a short drive south on the mainland to spend the day at Xcaret, a natural water park of underground rivers and ocean coves. Strap on the park’s Sea Trek gear—an oxygen-equipped underwater helmet—and meet colorful parrotfish face to face.
Cancún’s beaches are lined with restaurants, cafes and bars, but the authentic Mexican restaurants on the mainland in Cancún City are worth the short drive from our Cancún hotels. Here’s where you can sample the region’s Maya specialties, such as cochinita pibil, sweet and savory barbecue pork wrapped in banana leaves. Or settle in for dinner in the comfort of the Hotel Zone, where two shopping malls—La Isla Shopping Village and Forum by Sea—hold dozens of top-notch restaurants, from Thai to Italian. Go straight from dinner to dancing at one of the malls’ rocking nightclubs. The fiesta lasts until daybreak—all the better to watch the spectacular sunrise over the Caribbean Sea.
Book a room at our Cancún hotels in winter for the balmiest weather, or in spring or autumn when fewer crowds mean more beach space for you and your family.
