Flying to Cancun

Cancún is a popular beach resort destination on the Mexican Yucatán Peninsula. The coastal area of the city is lined with beachfront resorts and tourist attractions, but scattered around the outskirts of the city and further inland are ancient Mayan ruins.

Many of the Mayan civilization sites are located nearby in Riviera Maya and Grand Costa Maya.

If taking a break from the beach resorts, make sure to visit Cancún’s Interactive Aquarium or travel the 30 kilometres to the Isla Contoy, the breeding place of 150 different types of sea birds.

Adventure seekers can visit Hidden Worlds, Tulum, or Xcaret.
