Your Cancun holiday

It's true that tourists fill Cancun and its happening Hotel Zone, but for good reason. Flights are cheap, the beaches are the best this close to U.S. soil and there is plenty of outdoor action. While partying is synonymous with this spring break hot-spot, plenty of quiet, couples-only resorts claim a strip of sand. Families take to the Mayan ruins, water parks and dolphin swims.

With the comforts and commercial temptations of home, Cancun is a good place to get your international feet wet, and between sunning all day and dancing all night, you can sleep on the plane back home.

ebookers reveals the best of Cancun travel with the best time to go, top 10 attractions and insider gems.

Best time to take a vacation to Cancun

  • If you find a great deal and can snag a few days off, pack a carry-on and boogie down to Cancun any time. Weather-wise, Cancun has a monopoly on warm sunshine year round. June through November is hurricane season, which peaks in September and October.

    You'll find flocks of sun-worshippers at Christmas and Easter, and spring break crowds each March. It's wet and hot from May to November, but prices dip and crowds are few. Cancun regulars swear by January and February for ideal weather.

  • Cancun is hot and sunny throughout the year, especially in August when temperatures reach 33°C during the day and rarely go below 23°C even at night. Even in the coldest months of December, January and February, temperatures range from lows of 18°C to highs of 28°C. Late August is a great time to visit Cancun if you love the sun but don't care for crowds, and other off-peak seasons include the rainy months of September and October. No matter when you want to visit Cancun, check ebookers for great prices on your hotel rooms and air tickets.

Insider tips for Cancun travel

  • Mayan ruins in the city

    Kids love to climb the remains of a small Mayan settlement at the El Rey ruins, oblivious to its age, dating back to 10th century A.D. Bring fruit and feed the hundreds of sunning iguanas. El Meco is quiet, naturally shaded and tranquil enough for a picnic among the 14 structures or at nearby Isla Blanca, a local beach. Both are a reasonable drive from the Hotel Zone.

  • El Café

    Local journalists relax over breakfast or lunch on the simple terrace at this hideout behind city hall. The coffee is good and strong and the dinner menu is authentic.

  • Market 23

    Practice your Spanish … and your haggling skills. Pottery, blankets, hats, jewelry, clothing and local crafts mix with fresh meat, fish shops and fruit stands at this very local market. Bring cash, preferably pesos. 

  • L'Escargot

    Grab a taxi for a taste of Paris in residential Cancun. The small, family-owned restaurant in a converted house oozes romance over an array of French classics. A tri-lingual staff provides formal service. Dress to the nines and reserve a seat on the terrace.

  • Neighborhood watering holes with live music

    Slip into Roots Jazz Club for late-night beats or El Capucino for live local reggae on Margaritas near Azucenas. Despite its location in Hotel Plaza Kokai, Bar Bohemio El Camarote is a cozy haunt that feels lesser-known with its small stage and decent bands.

  • Market 28 - Mercado Ventiocho

    Buy local crafts the way the natives do at this traditional Mexican market that features paintings as well as jewellery and pottery. Have fun bargaining to get the best deals.

    Underwater Art Museum

    Over 450 original sculptures await you as you put on your snorkelling gear to explore this unique museum, created by the sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor in the waters off Cancun and nearby Isla Mujeres.

    Cancun Tianguis (Mercado)

    This is another authentic Mexican market frequented by locals. This one offers great street food, as well as souvenirs and handicrafts. Bargaining is the name of the game at Cancun Tianguis.

    El Rey Ruins

    This quiet archaeological site gives an authentic glimpse of the Mayan culture that predated the arrival of the Spanish settlers in Mexico. It also features giant iguanas that make their homes amidst the ancient ruins.
