Introducing Cancun

As a honeymoon destination, Cancun offers a choice of gorgeous white-sand beaches, luxurious beachfront hotels, vibrant nightlife, great shopping and ancient Mayan ruins to explore along an idyllic 22km-long coastline.

Located on the tip of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, the megaresort of Cancun is a skinny 24km island in the shape of the number ‘7’ attached to the mainland by two bridges and separated from it by the lush Nichupté lagoon.

What to do and see in Cancun

South of Cancun lies the Riviera Maya, home to some of the hippest beaches on the coast including the chic Playa del Carmen and the gorgeous Tulum beach, which nestles beneath an ancient Mayan fortress.

Enjoy lunch at any of Cancun’s internationally renowned restaurants, then choose to sunbathe on a white-sand beach, go windsurfing, sailing, snorkelling, diving on the world’s second largest coral reef or touring by jet ski through the lush jungle of the lagoon.

In the evening, dine on delicious Mexican food, enjoy a tantalising cocktail and dance the night away at a boisterous nightclub such as Coco Bongo or The City. Cancun is home to more than 350 bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
