Beautiful city with many activities and tours that will keep you busy and very satisfied. Just be ready to spend additional money for the best activities and services.
If you come from a culture where tips are not common, you must expect a tip suggestion from every person that provides you with a service.
2 Things I enjoy: Historical trip: Chichen Itza/ Coba / Tulum Blue waters and sunshine: Xelha / Tulum
We bought this promo package but they didn't"t mention us that we need to attend this meeting for the time share.
.. And it"s gave us to much pressure or they gave us a lot of pressure to decide to get the upgrade package...so instead of relaxing more days for vacation we end up spending most of the days in this crazy meeting with the Ocean spa people staff..we have a bad experienced because of this...it"s good we still have one more night to spend it in the other hotel like Nyx...and that the only time we Appreaciate the Cancun place.
Cancun is an American holiday hotspot and as such is very expensive. I would not suggest staying hear at all as it is a rip off.
Many more great beach areas to stay at half the price around the world.
The city is good. But, there are night clubs and police all around the city center, which means the city has both sides.
Cancun is not an awesome city. It is basicly the zona hotelera for springbreakers from the US. We just stayed there single nights for transition from the US and again for departure to Mexico City! It culd be fun if you just want sun and beach but now for experiencing Mexico!
The best part of Cancun was being able to walk out of our hotel right onto the most incredible beach.
That was fantastic. We loved playing in the water. The hotel zone is an intense touristy place, but again the beach made everything alright. We didn't enjoy the old downtown area at all. We really loved some of the day tours and water parks. The best food was found in some of the local places catering to tourists. we didn't enjoy the chain places so much. While beer and someother things could be very cheap in the local supermarkets, in general everything is expensive. Cancun is a place you go to knowing that its gonna be a neon and noise filled tourist trap. However, the sights and the water, and some of the food will make it worthwhile.
It's fun if you want to spent spring break with drunk American kids or enjoy all inklusaive with your family! Apart from that.
cancun is a overrated destination. It is dirty overcrowd and over priced.A a single older male there was no entertainment.
Cancun is a nice relaxing and safe city. It is also cheap with buses along the hotel zone costing 75cents per ride.
The lyrics of "South of the border, down Mexico way" is a good way to describe Cancun. Lots of delicious cheap Mexican food as well if you are on a budget.
It needs a better road system and you should have a recycling program explained to the inhabitants so that the trash does not clog up the street drains when it rains.
Drivers have to learn to be more courteous, especially taxies and bus drivers
busy city with lots of things to do. great restaurants and lots of shopping. Many places to see and very welcoming locals
Great beaches, and activities, great variety of hotels, lots of good restaurants, a little expensive but they´re great
I did not encounter any bad people the whole time i was there. They all bend over backwards to help you.
big modern beach resort with hotels, shops, restaurants, night life and wonderful beach and turquoise sea
to the natives..the only thing i would change is let the tourists use your rest rooms please..that is the only thing i found wrong with cancun.
./the natives are not friendly about the rest rooms & that has happened to me twice in a five year span.
We have been in Cancun two times now. First we stayed for one week at the Omni Hotel, this year we stayed in a small, no frills, lovely apartment-like suite for two nights.
We were happy with both stays. We are SCUBA divers so that has been our main experience with the area. We dove both years with Aqua World Dive Company and were more than pleased with the excellent service and instruction provided by them. My husband recieved his Open Water Certification and I did the first two dives of my Open Water with them on our first visit. This year we toured "The Museum" near Isla Mujeres and another lovely reef. Wonderful experiences.
this season is off season that not too many tourists at the moment. downtown is very safe even at night.
Cancun beach is the most beautiful among Carribean countries like Jamaica and Cuba that I've been already. so beautiful city:)
If you like the Caribbean Beach, you can go to Hotel Zone area by R1 bus easily. You then can enjoy the Sunny beach there.
Little bit disappointed than I expected. My friends who went together said that beaches in Florida are better.
It is not that cheap even though it is located in Mexico. Exchanging USD to Peso requires lots of commissions, unlike doing in other Mexican cities.
