Cancún, on Mexico’s Caribbean coast, is far more than bars and beaches. Discover Cancún’s green side in its jungles and mangroves. Discover its serene side with yoga and Mayan spa treatments. And discover its authentic side in the mercados and cafés at the city’s center.
Cancún is one of the most popular holiday getaways for American travelers, Allianz data shows. Mexico has placed few COVID-19 restrictions on tourists entering the country.1 Check the latest travel alerts and requirements before planning your trip.
What’s the best travel insurance plan for Cancún? OneTrip Basic is a favorite of budget travelers, with broad protection for an affordable price. If you’re planning more than two getaways this year, you could save money with an AllTrips annual travel insurance plan.
Most of our plans include the Epidemic Coverage Endorsement, which adds covered reasons to select benefits for certain losses related to COVID-19 and any future epidemic. (Benefits vary by plan and are not available in all jurisdictions).
“Quiet and serenity” aren’t words you typically associate with Cancún, but you’ll find both at Nizuc Resort and Spa. This family-friendly resort on the southern end of the hotel zone wins over guests with impeccable service, a beautiful spa and unique offerings: a sushi-making class, private dinners, live Cuban jazz and tequila tastings.
Le Blanc Spa Resort is an adults-only, all-inclusive resort that consistently ranks as one of the top luxury hotels in Cancún. The food is extraordinary. Private butlers make your every wish come true. Guests enjoy top-shelf drinks and 24-hour room service.
If you’d prefer to avoid the hustle of Cancún’s main drag, escape to Beloved Playa Mujeres, an all-inclusive boutique hotel for couples. Choose your personal paradise: a swim-up suite with a private garden? A terrace suite with a plunge pool? Or a lavish penthouse with ocean views? There are only 109 rooms, so you’ll feel like everything’s made just for you.
Even if you opt for an all-inclusive resort in Cancún, you should venture out at least once for some local flavor. One favorite is Hacienda El Mortero on the north end of Cancún, which has live mariachi music nightly and serves specialties like steak norteño style and fish marinated with achiote and sour orange. For something different, try Peter’s Restaurante, a small, family-run spot. The European-trained chef makes memorable brisket, mushroom ravioli, and hogfish. Don’t miss the key lime pie for dessert.
Another of the best places to eat in Cancún is Restaurante y Cocteleria Mar-Bella, a waterfront café that’s off the beaten track (you enter through a grocery store). There, you’ll find ocean views and superior seafood, including ceviche and octopus.
