Choosing hotel in Cancun

Cancun Hotel Zone

How to choose the Hotel in Cancun?

If you thinking of staying in Cancun, you should consider the location, price, and the plan with or without food (all inclusive)! this advice might help:

There are hotels in the Hotel Zone, and downtown cancun, assumed that the hotels downtown are cheaper but don’t have access to the beach.

But actually not all of the hotels in the Hotel Zone have beach access, some of them are on the side of the lagoon so make shure what you want
All the hotels in the Hotel Zone are located on Boulevard Kukulcan, and it ranges from km2 to km21, now look at this:

How would you like your Beach?

There are two kinds of beaches you can choose in Cancún: from km 2 to km9 we have the most quiet, short and no waves beaches, and from km 9 to km 21 and up we have the agitated beaches with waves (perfect if you like to jump ) but if your looking to swim, this could be a little uncomfortable if you are traveling with children or older adults, since you can not swim very well,  so make sure you’re on the beach of your choice in Cancun.

If you come with the intention of walking and taking a day trip to the beautiful places that we have here in Cancun, then  you will not use the beach that much, probably you will leave on a tour very early and come back when the sun is leaving, so there’s no time to visit beach, if that’s the case you may prefer not to spend the extra to have a beachfront hotel so you have more money to spend in visiting the different attractions the destination offers, and also you can enjoy a different beach every day.
If the price does not matter, a beachfront hotel with or without spa is right for you! and your family …

And if  you come with you family the thing for you could be an all-inclusive hotel where you pay before and not have to worry about over consumption “extras”, because as its name says, its All INCLUDED and you just have to relax!

If you like the Fiesta, the nightlife, the “Clubs”, the antros or what ever you call them in your home, then consider staying in a hotel between km 8 and km 10, so that way you are in the area of the Clubs and you don’t have to take a taxi, but if on the contrary, hate the noise at night, stay away from that area and you’ll be much happier.

Do You Like Birds? Come visit CONTOY ISLAND on your trip to Cancun, Mexico

Contoy Island

Welcome to one of the most beautiful islands of the mexican caribbean and very close to Cancun. Contoy Island is located northeast of the Yucatan Peninsula, on one side we have the Gulf of Mexico and on other the Caribbean Sea.

The mixture of the cold waters of the Gulf and the warm waters of the Caribbean, helps the production of plankton that attracts large numbers of Sea Birds. Therefore, it has become the natural refuge of 151 species of birds. Contoy Island is a protected area, since turtles come to nest on its beaches. Contoy Island is a paradise very near to Cancun Quintana Roo, and its one of the many ecological tours that you can find in Cancun, but its certainly the most beautiful and preserved paradise.

As a natural reserve protected area, tourism is limited to 200 visitors a day, so only very few lucky ones have the opportunity to admire the beauty of the beautiful beaches of Contoy Island, and be amazed by the diversity of Birds that live in the island. If you go to Cancun or Isla Mujeres you can visit Contoy Island, its less than an hour by boat, you must book 3 days in advance and you can leave in the morning and return by the end of the afternoon.

Contoy Island is for demanding Tourism that want a different option away from crowds.
