Posted on March 15, 2021 by Rob Hale

Are you dreaming of crystal clear blue waters washing over white sandy beaches while you sip a tropical drink? Do you want to lie in the blazing sun to work on that tan (don’t forget to wear sunscreen—we don’t need to ruin a trip with a burn)? Does local cuisine, especially incredibly fresh seafood, excite your palate and get your stomach rumbling?

Well, it sounds like you’re just about ready to look into your honeymoon or next vacation in Cancun. However, don’t think that this just a trip for couples; plenty of friend vacations and group vacations have made lasting memories in Cancun. No matter who you’re going with, we’ve compiled a quick guide for the things you need to know when taking a trip to Cancun.

Cancun is safe

You may have heard some tales that Mexico is a dangerous place; while certain areas may pose more threats than others, Cancun is entirely safe and friendly to tourists, especially if you book an all-inclusive package at a resort. There may be some pockets you should avoid, but they are far and few between, and we can go over them in more detail when you book your vacation through our Denver travel agency.

The beaches are beautiful

Get ready for bright sunshine, warm white sands, and cool cerulean waters when you head to the beaches in Cancun. There’s nothing quite like roasting in the sun to get your tan a deeper shade and then hopping in the waters to cool off. However, the sun in Cancun is very powerful, and you absolutely need to use sunscreen to avoid skin damage. Additionally, be aware that the undertow in the water can be strong, so take extra caution when you go for a dip!

There’s plenty of food to enjoy

From lavish restaurants to local holes in the wall, there is no shortage of delicious food to try and enjoy while vacationing in Cancun. While they are known for their seafood, their meats, cheeses, and other dishes are not to be overlooked! Don’t forget to get some dessert while you’re at it.

The sights away from the resort areas are easily accessible

Want to go for a swim in a gorgeous, natural swimming hole surrounded by cliffs and plants, or visit the spectacular Mayan pyramids of Chichen Itza and temples of Tulum? It’s a quick day-trip away when you’re in Cancun. If you feel the need for some retail therapy, there are a few flea markets and shopping centers to pick up locally made crafts and trinkets to remember your trip!

Cancun can be very budget-friendly

If you want to go all-out on your honeymoon, there’s a luxurious suite waiting for you at one of the many resorts. If you want to spend your nights comfortably without breaking the bank, there are hotels and rooms available to make sure you sleep soundly.
