Visiting Cancun in 2024 and Beyond

Cancun is one of the most popular destinations in Mexico and for good reason: The city and the wider Riviera Maya area are stunning.

Many of the luxe hotels and resorts here have direct beach access and private stretches of shoreline. Playa Delfines and Playa Chac Mool are popular places to hang out and relax, with the latter being the more peaceful of the two.

Enjoy the sea from another perspective by diving or snorkeling in the translucent azure waters. The MUSA underwater art museum is a fascinating new attraction that opened in recent years and allows you to see huge, larger-than-life sculptures while diving underwater. 

Cancun is also conveniently located for a wider exploration of the Yucatan peninsula. You can take day trips from here to some of the best places in the Yucatan. For instance, the ruins at Ek Balam, Coba, Chichen Itza, or some of the countless cenotes in the area.

You could also head down the coast towards Tulum, Bacalar, and Mahahual from here. Alternatively, head north towards Playa del Carmen, Cozumel, Isla de la Mujeres, Isla Holbox, and El Cuyo

Cancun is a safe destination suitable for all travelers, provided you take the necessary common sense precautions you would anywhere. Both the hotel zone and downtown Cancun boasts an excellent restaurant and nightlife options where you can enjoy everything from traditional Yucatecan food to international fare.
