About Cancun Mexico
Cancun is one of the most visited destinations in the world. Tucked on the Caribbean sea, it is split into two main areas: The Hotel Zone and downtown. The Hotel Zone (or Zona Hotelera) is where you’ll find miles of gorgeous beaches, restaurants, shops and nightlife. It is bustling with energy and designed to help you get the most out of your vacation. You can certainly walk about, but the Hotel Zone stretches for many miles so you'll likely want to catch a taxi or take one of the local buses. The island of Isla Mujeres is right on your doorstep and many sailing excursions or other tours depart right from the Hotel Zone.
Downtown or "El Centro" is the more traditional downtown area located just a few miles from the Hotel Zone. Here you'll find incredible dining options and be rubbing shoulders with more locals that call Cancun home. There are many things to do in Cancun's downtown area ranging from shopping to live music to Maya Ruins or even watching a traditional bullfight.
