Cancun sits at the head of the Riviera Maya like a jewel in a crown, a mature, luxe city that has proven itself well beyond its spring breaker reputation. Its zona hotelera balances along a strip of land on the eastern Caribbean shoreline, flanked by a gorgeous golden sand beach and beyond that, turquoise water melting into the sea. But there’s much beyond that.

How about amazing architecture, upscale clubs and geometric street layouts framing parks and public squares. For lovers of culture and history, there’s the Museo Maya, perfect for days too hot to visit the real deal, and a vibrant art scene. This modern city also plays host to some of Mexico’s most dazzling cuisine — from gargantuan fresh lobsters to barbacoa (slow cooked meats) and tastes from around the world. You’ll build an appetite after delights on the sea — Cancun is world-famous for its whale sharks, gentle giants you can swim alongside, as well as all manners of boating, fishing, scuba and snorkeling above its technicolor reef.
