Constructed in the 1970s and 80s, Cancun was developed by the Mexican Government as a vacation package hot spot. The Cancun strip, shaped somewhat like the number seven, features numerous hotels, bars, nightclubs, shops, and more, in addition to its outstanding clean white sand beaches. This Americanized holiday destination is perfect for those who wish to enjoy the excitement of a thriving nightlife scene, and shopping by day, in a lively atmosphere. However, Cancun vacations offer something for everyone, and there is no shortage of relaxing beaches, nearby cultural sites, as well as numerous sporting activities and tours for the more adventurous. Major attractions, such as Isla Mujeres, are not to be missed, providing a nice addition to your Cancun package vacation experience.
Generally, Cancun vacations tend to appeal to singles, couples, and active people in search of a lively package holiday experience. If you are looking for a an overall safe urban environment for your holiday, Cancun vacations, in a controlled tourist area, are a great option. When exploring off of the resort on your Cancun vacation, you can take advantage of frequent public shuttles and taxis that will make short trips to shopping, night life, and restaurants quick and easy. As always, when on vacation, remember that there is safety in numbers. Also, although the drinking water is designated as safe to drink at your Cancun package vacation destination, we recommend that you stick with bottled water.
With a Cancun package vacation, you will find beautiful sand beaches that are relatively narrow, and well-maintained against the affects of tidal activity. The water can be rough in Cancun, producing strong undertows that may result in warning flags being posted on windier days. Beaches at the top end of the "seven" are generally nicer and calmer than those along the vertical strip. However, the wave action and undertow is such that these beaches are not recommended for young children – a consideration when considering the Cancun packages.
Cancun is blessed with warm tropical weather, making it a great destination for your package holiday. Maximum temperatures typically range between 26°C (78.8°F) and 33°C (91.4°F) in the day, and between 18°C (64.4°F) and 25°C(77°F) at night, with the greatest rainfall typically peaking in the months of September-October. Hurricane season, with its unpredictability of storm events, typically lasts from July through to December, peaking from mid-August to mid-December. Although Cancun vacations are generally less impacted by hurricanes when compared with Caribbean destinations, the possibility remains. However, when booking Cancun vacation packages, you can rest assured that tour operators will not fly you into a hurricane, will act fast to get you out in the event of any development, and will offer an alternative destination or travel credit by way of compensation if your holiday plans are affected. You can find great Cancun vacation package deals during hurricane season, and the economic advantage is well worth considering. We recommend that you speak with one of our tripcentral agents to fully understand the great value benefit vs. limited risk associated with travel to this region during hurricane season.
One of the main reasons why tourists choose a Cancun vacation package is the vibrant and exciting night life, comparable to Miami beach. On your Cancun vacation, you can dance the night away at one of the many great discos or latin night clubs, enjoy a night of drinks at an outdoor patio, or mingle with the crowds along the well-lit streets. If you are looking for casinos on your package holiday, Cancun may not be the right place for you. But if you want a vacation that will get you moving to the beat, Cancun packages are the perfect option, offering a hotter nightlife experience when compared with the Mayan coast.
Tour operators offer plenty of great all-inclusive Cancun vacation package options. However, you may wish to take advantage of the the variety of restaurants that operate independent of your resort. Although a bit high priced, you can expect good variety from both chain and smaller independent restaurants, including a Planet Hollywood. While exploring the sights on your Cancun vacation, you may also wish to do some shopping, and all the big brands are there. Cancun features more than one mall for indoor shopping, but not a great market to haggle in the sunshine. Duty free shopping is limited to the airport. While enjoying your Cancun vacation, access to banking is not an issue, with major banks and ATM machines available.
If you are looking for sporting activity options with your Cancun vacation package, you won't be disappointed. For scuba diving and snorkelling enthusiasts, a trip to the Mayan coast or a day trip to Cozumel will provide a great experience, as well as a visit to Isla Mujeres for additional snorkelling opportunities, boutique hotels, and restaurants. Most other water sports are available to enhance your Cancun package holiday, with no shortage of options and availability. For the golfing aficionado, Cancun offers a golf course at the top end of the "seven", near to the Intercontinental. More golfing opportunities exist along the Mayan coast, and your tripcentral agent can provide you with all of the information that you need to ensure that your Cancun package holiday includes all of the golfing you desire.
Cancun packages offer plenty of day trip opportunities for those wishing to enhance their vacation with great sightseeing. Take advantage of flight-seeing tours, coach tours, catamaran tours, and water tours during your Cancun vacation, and get the most out of your holiday experience.
Whether you choose to book an all-inclusive Cancun vacation, or decide to book a Cancun package with a bit more flexibility, you have many hotel resort options available to you. Year round flights for all-inclusive Cancun vacations are widely available from all major gateways across Canada, with the exception of certain seasonal limitations out of Atlantic Canada. A 25 minute drive from the airport will take you to the heart of the "hotel zone", which runs along the long side of the "seven-shaped" strip, up to the top. Hotels are situated closer together in the "hotel zone", and all are beach-front, in close proximity to the beach. Many of these high-rise hotels, representing all of the major hotel chains, have undergone major renovations – hotels are not "new", but all have been or are being renovated. Many of the hotels are all-inclusive, but there are plenty that are not, providing for those wishing to take advantage of the many nearby restaurants and ease of mobility during their Cancun package holiday. With such variety, we are confident that you can find a Cancun vacation package that suits your needs. For those planning a wedding in the sun, you may wish to consider the more popular Mayan coast if you are looking for a package holiday in this region.
All-inclusive Cancun vacations are relatively more expensive due to the great popularity of this destination, market competition, and the comparably high cost of real estate. However, those who choose Cancun packages are pleased with the great number of options available to them on their vacation, and the feeling of "being in the centre" of all the excitement. If an active vacation with vibrant nightlife is for you, speak with one of our tripcentral agents about booking your all-inclusive Cancun vacation package, or more flexible Cancun package, today.
