    Where modern tourism meets ancient culture

How to enjoy Cancun

Created in the 1970s as a tourist destination, The Glistening City has been honing its craft ever since – something that can be seen in the attention to detail and high quality of service everywhere

  • Truly a wonder of the world, the Mayan pyramid of Chichén Itzá is well worth a day trip to see
  • Some of the world’s most beautiful golf courses are dotted along the Cancún coastline including links designed by Greg Norman and Jack Nicklaus
  • For luxury shopping try Luxury Avenue. Although the name might not be imaginative, you’ll find plenty of creativity in stores such as Louis Vuitton, Cartier and Burberry

Although beloved of the Spring Break party crowd, there is more to Cancún than overexcited college students nursing hangovers in loud Hawaiian shirts. The party life is good, running on fuel-injection tequila, but it is not the only thing Cancún has to offer. Born as a tourist destination in the 1970s, this purpose built holiday town has never lost sight of the fact that its sole purpose is to provide unforgettable vacations.

Now turning 40, Cancún has mellowed while still taking care of itself. Continuous investment means there are several new resorts and the older ones are kept as fresh and vibrant as when they opened. The gorgeous white sand and clear blue sea are the main draw, of course, but the Mayan ruins and pyramids of the Yucatan peninsula are utterly stunning and worth a day trip or two.
