When you book Cancun vacations, the main attraction is typically the sandy white beaches and blue water. Most hotels in Cancun offer water sports and impressive beach lounging that makes it easy to have a great vacation without venturing much farther than your hotel. To take in more local sights, look into hotel shuttle services or rent a car in Cancun so that you can explore the Mayan ruins, Museo Maya de Cancun, and local markets. The Interactive Aquarium, in the midst of the hotel zone, is easily accessible and allows you to get up close with dolphins, stingrays, sea cucumbers, star fish, and more. Nearby Playa del Carmen is about an hour away if you want to take in more local shopping, dining, and music.
Booking Cancun vacation packages is an easy way to plan out your hotel stay and flights all at once. When you are deciding what time of year is best, consider some of the local festivals you may want to attend. Independence Day on September 16 brings fireworks and impressive celebrations. The Mayan Village Show in January provides plenty of historical entertainment and the Riviera Maya Wine and Food Festival in March celebrates fine food and drinks with events that span well into the evening.
