Welcome To Cancun
I will be your guide in exploring the area, our culture and share insider tips. My goal is to help you have authentic and memorable experiences during your time in Cancun, the heart of the Mexican Caribbean. I look forward to having the opportunity of welcoming you!
A perfect day in Cancún starts with a wonderful breakfast Mexican style: eggs, chilaquiles, tortillas, frijoles and coffee. Afterwards, it's time to enjoy the beach. An ocean front palapa -a palm thatched umbrella- will be waiting for you so you can relax and enjoy the Caribbean sun along with a refreshing Michelada, a mix of beer and lime juice. Once you have tried some water sports and have played some beach volleyball on the bleach white sand, it will be time for a relaxing massage to regain your energy and enjoy the rest of the day.
Time for shopping. Cancún is the place for wonderful stores and fine jewelery. If local handicrafts are more your style, then Mercado 28 is a must. The Luxury Avenue is the perfect spot to find exclusive brands. La Isla is also an excellent option to shop as is an open air mall with the newest restaurants, famous brand-name shops, bars, movie theater and a modern interactive aquarium where you shouldn't miss the opportunity of swimming with dolphins.
The fun in Cancún doesn't stop when the sun goes down. Our nightlife is world-renowned for a good reason: you can dance the night away in our famous discos. But first, it's time for dinner. The gastronomic variety offered in Cancún is enormous. You can find Mexican and international food, seafood and wonderful fine cuts of meat. If you only have one night here we'll make a reservation for you at one of the "Haciendas", where not only will you enjoy the finest typical Mexican food but you can also be part of a real Mexican party and the sound of Mariachis.
The local currency is Mexican pesos (MXN). Kinldy be informed that as per federal law, non Mexican citizens can exchange up to 1,500 US dollars in cash per month. Be prepared to present your passport when exchanging money at the bank or at exchange currency desk at the hotel.
Only book tours through known agencies. Make sure the ticket has the name of the company, its phone numbers, address, folio number and hours. The travel agency at the hotel will always be the most reliable one.
Don't forget there is a departure tax payable at the airport. The amount can be covered in pesos or US dollars, only cash is accepted.
The Yucatan Peninsula is one of the flattest places on earth. As a result, the region´s heavy rainfall is collected in a series of underground sink wells known as "cenotes", which emerge as vast subterranean lakes and rivers. Many cenotes are located near Cancun and are ideal for new adventures, swimming and snorkeling!
DID YOU KNOW ?
Cancun is located in the state of Quintana Roo, on the east coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is divided into two areas: Hotel Zone, between the lagoon and the sea, and downtown Cancun.
Modern Mexican cuisine is the result of the fusion of two cultures: Pre-Hispanic and Spanish. The Xtabentum is the traditional drink served in Cancun and is a liqueur made in Yucatan, from rum, aniseed and honey produced by bees from the nectar of Xtabentun flowers.
Moving around Cancun
You can take the regular bus to move around the Hotel Zone and downtown any time of the day. It is safe and cheap. The bus drivers are very friendly and will help you to find your stop.
WHAT TO PACK
Cellular Phone Charger
If you are planning to bring your cellular phone, do not forget your charger. In Mexico we have 110 watts in electricity.
Clothing and accessories
We recommend you wear insect repellent if you take a tour to any of the eco-theme parks, archaeological sites and caverns. You should use biodegradable sunscreen at the eco-theme parks. Be aware of the rainy season from June to November and that Cancun has a very warm and humid climate. Make sure to bring light clothing to wear during day time as well as formal clothing for the evening as it might be requested at some restaurants or discos.
