Cancun Luxury Hotels

Stretching from the calm Caribbean sea across a sandy strand and into lush green jungle, Cancun leads you from sun-drenched sands and a luxurious modern metropolis, to the relics of ancient Mayan civilization. The city’s skyscrapers serve as a man-made belt dividing the cloudless cerulean sky above and the azure blue waters below. With fine-dining around every corner, an active watersports scene and an animated nightlife, travelers seeking a luxury vacation in Cancun will not be disappointed with the huge variety on offer.

Things to see in Cancun

A visit to one the many nearby Mayan ruins is a must-do for anyone planning a trip to Cancun. The Chichen Itza archaeological area is one of the top tourist attractions in Cancun, with the iconic El Castillo pyramid at its heart. After soaking up the region’s culture, sit back and relax with a well-deserved cocktail on one of the soft, white-sand beaches in Cancun, such as Playa Delfines, Playa Forum, or North beach. If you’re more at home in the water than on the sand, there are plenty of water activities in Cancun to keep you cool under the heat of the Mexican sun. Snorkel in the tranquil sapphire waters of the Cancun Underwater Museum (MUSA). You can drift with the fish through 3 different submerged galleries with over 500 statues—you’ll even spot a coral-covered Volkswagen Beetle nestled in the seabed.

Luxury hotels in Cancun

This city was actually custom-made by the Mexican government in the 1970s as a high-end tourist destination, so you can choose from an abundance of luxury hotels in Cancun. All-inclusive spa resorts and upscale hotels rise from the sand into the sky, boasting amenities such as private balconies and pools, opulent on-site restaurants, and wellness packages to leave you feeling rejuvenated and ready for the day ahead. Most of the hotels in Cancun are very extravagant and highly rated, and there’s even a whole area of the city known as the Hotel Zone, so you are really spoiled for choice.

Where to stay in Cancun

The Hotel Zone is one of the main tourist areas in Cancun. This whole area is dedicated to luxury hotels, lavish restaurants, and a lively nightlife scene to cater to your every indulgence. A stay in Downtown allows for a more authentic experience where you can join in with the locals and celebrate traditional holidays, such as Día de Muertos (Day of the dead), Día de la Raza (Columbus day), and Grito de la Independencia (Independence day). Playa Del Carmen to the south of Cancun offers a more relaxed atmosphere and the beach area is often far less crowded than its central counterparts.

How to get to Cancun

Most international airlines fly directly into Cancun International Airport, which is conveniently located close to the main hotel district. Transportation from Cancun Airport to your hotel is simple—authorized taxi services and shuttles are readily available just outside. Or, for more freedom and style, you can book a deluxe private car or limo in advance and your driver will be waiting for you at Arrivals to whisk you to your luxury hotel. Getting around Cancun is a breeze via public transport or taxi, but private transportation organized by your hotel staff can be a more comfortable and convenient way to travel.
