    Vacation guide Cancun

    Famed for its ancient origins as much as its current-day bustle, Cancun's Mayan Ruins take in striking architecture, spectacular art, and culturally diverse structures. Between the 1980s and the present, Cancun has transformed itself from a jungle village into a diverse holiday resort comprising ancient relics and sandy beaches, and providing a haven for water sports fanatics and beach holidaymakers alike. Buttressing south-east Mexico's coastline, this part of the Yucatan Peninsula contrasts Caribbean-facing luxury hotels with bars and restaurants overlooking the romantic Nichupte Lagoon.

    Restaurants & Nightlife

    Restaurants & Cuisine

    Cancun has more than 300 restaurants in its two regions: The Hotel Zone (Zona Hotelera), which caters to the international tourist crowd; and the more modest El Centro (downtown Cancun), home to local and more traditional restaurants. In the Hotel Zone, you’ll find Mexican dishes, but they’re more likely to be Tex-Mex than authentic Mexican, as most meals here are designed for American and Canadian palettes.

    Most of the restaurants are located along Bulevar Kukulcán—on the street or in one of the hotels. If you find yourself trying to muddle through a menu written in Spanish ask the waiter for an English version as virtually every restaurant has one (and some restaurants may have them in German, French, or Italian). Prices are generally similar to those in the US, and if you're visiting in the peak season be sure to make reservations for any restaurants on your priority list.

    Mexican restaurants outside the Hotel Zone almost never have English menus, and all menu items and descriptions are in Spanish. If you know the basic types of Mexican meals you will probably get by, but some restaurants have their own descriptions for house specialties, and many of the waiters only speak Spanish. In short, your meal may not be quite what you thought you ordered, but this can be half the fun of eating in El Centro.

    Italian

    Gustino, located in the JW Marriott hotel, whips up a mean lobster lasagna, as well a great selection of other Italian fare, while La Dolce Vita on Bulevar Kukulcán has hearty, traditional meals and wonderful views across Nichupté Bay. La Madonna in La Isla Shopping Village on Bulevar Kukulcán offers a fusion of Italian and Swiss cuisines with a hint of Mexico thrown in (for example, Swiss fondue with chipotle chili). Locanda Paolo in El Centro on Bonampak Av has an elegant atmosphere and an ever-changing menu. Be sure to check out their delicious specials. El Principio is also on Bonampak Av and is an affordable bistro-style restaurant that offers Italian and Mexican food in huge portions for cheap prices. Try the meatballs in chipotle sauce.


    Seafood

    Mocambo is a beachfront hotspot on Bulevar Kukulcán popular for its seafood buffet, and up-market Casitas in the Ritz-Carlton is perfect for that romantic dinner. Lorenzillo's is a favorite for its huge selection of seafood dishes, including lobster fresh from the on-site tank. El Centro La Habichuela on Margaritas Street has an outdoor garden area resembling a Mayan ruin and be sure to try the grilled giant shrimp with garlic butter. El Oasis on Av. Yaxchilán is for those who want a more authentic experience, as all menus are in Spanish and the staff speak little English.

    Mediterranean

    At Fantino in the Ritz-Carlton, not only is the food fit for a King, but you will also be treated like royalty, and Le Basilic is an elegant, a la carte French-Mediterranean restaurant in the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach resort.


    Japanese

    Mikado at the CasaMagna Marriott is open for dinner and offers traditional Japanese and Thai dishes. If you want to be more involved in the cooking process, choose a teppanyaki table and watch the food fly as chefs cook your selection right in front of you. At Yamamoto on Uxmal Av in El Centro, you'll enjoy traditional Japanese meals in a peaceful setting, and IIrori on Av Tulum offers great sushi and noodles.


    Argentine

Puerto Madero has great views of the Nichupté Lagoon and offers delicious steak and seafood meals, while Bandoneon on Av Bonampak in El Centro not only has authentic meals but was designed to look like a street in Argentina. Try a “tango” tiramisu before rolling out the door.


    French

    Aioli in Le Méridien Cancún Resort & Spa is one of Cancun's finest French restaurants. Be sure to dress accordingly, and try to sample at least one of the decadent handmade desserts before leaving. du Mexique on Av Bonampak in El Centrol is a house converted into an intimate dining room for around 20 guests. The chef/owner chooses the best seasonal ingredients to create his ever-changing masterpieces.


    Thai

    Thai on Bulevar Kukulcán offers exquisite meals and resembles a thatch-roofed Thai village suspended over a lagoon and illuminated with soft pinks and blues. SaSi Thai is an up-market Thai restaurant located in the Casa Magna Marriott and housed within six thatch-roofed cabanas. Relax with a drink at the bar and then dig into a comprehensive selection of house specialties.


    Mexican

    Hacienda Sisal in the Royal Sands Resort resembles a traditional hacienda with its lively yellow and gold color scheme. The ambience is pure Mexico and the portions are generous. La Joya in the Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach has a spacious dining area, exceptional service, and often live entertainment from a mariachi band or Spanish dancers. La Guadalupana on Av Bonampak in El Centro is a popular cantina-style restaurant with a spirited atmosphere and local favorites such as grilled chilies and moronga sausage. La Placita on Av. Yaxchilán is a traditional Mexican restaurant serving more adventurous options such as bull testicles and goat meat.

    Bars & Nightlife

    If you're looking for an all-night mecca for cheap drinks, endless beer, and bikini contests, and a huge selection of cafe bars, pubs, clubs, and mega-clubs, Cancun is just that. However, if you want a more refined experience of top-shelf cigar bar ambience or quiet beachside cocktails, you've also come to the right place! Cancun has a watering hole for every thirsty vacationer. Most Cancun bars and nightclubs are in the Hotel Zone along Bulevar Kukulcán, which is basically one huge party venue. Downtown Cancun also offers many a fun night, but at a slightly slower and more subdued pace.


    Mega-clubs

    For serious partying, serious drinking, and serious ogling of flesh, your port of call should be one of the mega-clubs in the Hotel Zone. These massive nightclubs cater to several thousand partyers and are decked out with the latest sound-and-light shows which turn the dance floor into a pumping, pulsating ocean of bodies. Mix this with international DJs, Vegas-style floor shows, acrobats, go-go dancers, wet T-shirt competitions, foam-filled dance floors, indoor waterfalls, and all-you-can-drink cover charges, and you are up for a seriously big experience.

    The Bulldog Cafe at the Krystal Hotel is anything but a cafe. This place rocks from 10pm 'til dawn with frequent live concerts by world-famous bands, nightly shows, and the latest dance music, as well as its famous women-only Jacuzzi. Dady'O, in front of Plaza Forum, is a multi-level mega-club with six bars and a packed, smoke-filled dance floor that pumps out a wide range of music including dance, hip hop, and classics from the 80s and 90s—all illuminated by a laser light show. Coco Bongo in the Plaza Forum is one of Cancun's hippest venues, with a young and energetic crowd. Be sure to join one of the frequent congo lines that snake through the club and over the bars. The City is one of Cancun's largest and most impressive nightclubs. It's spread over three floors, has nine bars, and can accommodate up to 5,000 people. With a sound system that delivers a million watts of power, if you find yourself sitting down in this club, you’re in the wrong place.

    “We went to CocoBongo with the hotel and got VIP treatment - a must see! “
    - a traveler from New York

    Nightclubs

    If you like the nightlife but you're not keen on gyrating with a thousand other half-naked partygoers, your best bet is one of the smaller nightclubs, especially those that don't offer a drinks-inclusive cover charge. The O Ultra Lounge is a relatively intimate space with a large selection of cocktails for the elegant crowd, while La Boom is a massive club with English pub-style decor, several dance floors, and state-of-the-art sound and lighting. Up and Down gives you several choices, with its cool bar/restaurant upstairs and a modern nightclub downstairs. Some other popular clubs along Bulevar Kukulcán are Dady Rock Cancun in front of Plaza Forum, Club Over 30 in the Hyatt Cancun Hotel, and Basic Discotheque Cancun in front of Hyatt Cancun.


    Restaurant Bars, Sports Bars & Lounges

    If you want a more laid back experience, visit one of the dozens of bar/restaurants along the strip. Pat O'Brien's at the Flamingo Plaza is a relaxed venue for low key music and great views across the lagoon. Mango Tango, opposite the Ritz-Carlton, has great floor shows and live music, and the famous Señor Frog's is a restaurant with great views across the lagoon by day and a happening party venue by night. For a more refined evening, visit Very Wine, a wine bar in Plaza Caracol, where you can enjoy fine wines, liquors, and a great selection of tapas.

    Other popular bars along Bulevar Kukulcán are Carlos'n Charlie's just outside the Plaza Forum, the Hard Rock Café in the Forum by the Sea, Planet Hollywood inside the Centro Commercial Plaza and Flamingo and Casitas inside Hyatt Cancun. To catch the latest game on TV, Champions at the Marriott Casa Magna Hotel and Kelly's Sports Bar in the Avalon Grand Hotel are a couple of options in the Hotel Zone.

    Party with an open bar pass to

    If you find yourself in downtown Cancun be sure to visit Los Cuatro Elementos (the four elements) which is inside the hotel Xbalamque on Av Yaxchilán. This is a very laid back and intimate club with a bohemian ambience. Frequent live bands play Spanish rock and ballads. Las de Guanatos is a welcoming bar/restaurant on Playa Tortugas. Be sure to try a “michelada,” a flavored, beer-based cocktail and one of the house specialties. Club 77, on Av Yaxchilán, is a sports bar for true sports lovers with multiple TV screens and a great range of drinks.

    Best Time to Go

    Weather & When To Go

    With 250 sunny days and very little change in temperature, which averages around 80 F (27 C), the weather in Cancun is perfect for at least nine months of the year. The climate here is definitely tropical, so there is a rainy season which typically occurs from October to mid-December which can have occasional heavy downpours. Between May and December there is a higher risk of hurricanes and tropical storms, but these are rare. Late December to early April is generally dry with low humidity and very pleasant temperatures.

    Temperatures in December/January range from an average of 70 F (21 C) to 82 F (28 C), and in July/August they're around 77 F (25 C) to 92 F (33 C).

    Because of the Hotel Zone's location on the coast, with the Nichupté Lagoon on one side and the Caribbean Sea on the other, temperatures here are usually a few degrees cooler than in downtown Cancun. This is mainly due to a refreshing sea breeze which is generally stronger in the afternoons, and provides welcome relief from the humidity.

    During the rainy season, pack your swimsuit, sunscreen, hat, and an umbrella. In the dry season, just leave your umbrella at home.

    Good To Know

    After clearing customs, it is best to politely decline any offer by locals to carry your luggage as they will invariably demand money, and there is the chance your luggage could be stolen.

    Taxis hailed on the street are cheaper than those from taxi ranks, especially ranks outside hotels and restaurants.

    Exchange rates are much better once you have cleared customs.

    If you like Mexican beer (and who doesn't?), stop at one of the small convenience shops away from the tourist centers and you will find many different varieties you probably won't have seen before, many of which are great. They often have a couple different varieties of Corona that are superior to those sold in the States and around the world.

    Toll roads (Cuota) are generally much faster than free (Libre) roads, but they can be quite expensive. So consider whether you want to get to your destination quickly, but for a price, or take the slower route and enjoy the scenery. One great advantage of using toll roads is that any damage caused to your vehicle by potholes, etc. is covered by insurance included in the toll. So keep the toll receipt, if possible note the distance marker where the damage occurred, and report any damage at the next toll booth.

    Getting Around

    By Bus

    The cheapest and easiest way to get around Cancun is by bus, and several routes are available up and down the main Kukulcan Boulevard. The main difference between the bus routes is where they terminate, with some travelling only within the Hotel Zone and others heading into Cancun City and to the main intercity bus terminal. Buses are generally hot, noisy, and mostly full, but they can be a lot of fun to ride if you’re up for a local adventure. You may mistake some bus drivers for frustrated racing drivers as full speed is the only speed they know! It's best to have the correct fare whenever possible, as many drivers do not offer change.

    “The bus system is actually easy and efficient, we didn't even have to use a taxi! We spent one day in downtown and we did an awesome tour in Xel-Ha on another day.”
    - a traveler from Seattle

    If you're planning a trip out of Cancun, head into the ADO bus station (Estacion de Autobuses ADO) on Av. Tulum in Cancun City. Here you can catch a bus to locations along the coast as well as all the major destinations in the area.


    By Taxi

    Taxis are easy to come by in most parts of Cancun, and the fares are determined by the number of zones you pass through. When you catch a taxi from a cab rank, be aware that they will be more expensive than one you hailed off the street.

    Car Rental

    Rental Cars are available at the airport with all the international chains well represented, and concierges at many of the large hotels can arrange or at least assist with car rental. When driving out of Cancun, it's best to use toll roads—Cuota— wherever possible, and drive under the speed limit as the police are vigilant, especially with visitors. Driving can be a fun and rewarding experience in Mexico, but do make sure you have full insurance coverage, and buy Mexican Auto Insurance (it’s the only insurance recognized by local authorities). Avoid driving at night whenever possible as lighting is often poor, animals and pedestrians are difficult to see, and the chance of encountering drunk drivers is greatly increased at night.

    Driving in Cancun during Spring Break does not make for a relaxing experience, as the police are out in force and a lot of Spring Breakers who have probably partied hard will also be out in force, so your best bet is to stick with buses or taxis.
