The clubs and bars of Cancun will have you dancing the night away while the excellent choices of restaurants offer cuisine from around the world. The hotels are littered with boutiques and souvenir shops and the activities and entertainment programmes provide endless fun for those booking cheap holidays in Cancun.
All inclusive package holidays in Cancun are focused on the area’s superb beaches, which have soft, sparkling sand and clear water. Another appeal is the lush ecosystems, of which an interesting feature is the cenotes, or underwater sinkholes. These are small circular ponds resulting from collapsed limestone bedrock that are thought to have been used in ancient Mayan rituals.
For a change of scenery, head over to Laguna Nichupté. At this vast fresh water lagoon you’ll find numerous marinas and waterfront restaurants. The lagoon itself is actually made up of eight interlocking lagoons, which are excellent locations for water sports including jet skiing, kayaking and fishing, although the beaches here are often enclosed to protect wildlife such as indigenous crocodiles and snakes.
Right along the Caribbean coast of Cancun you’ll have the chance to try out water sports, with everything from a relaxing jaunt on a pedalo to an exhilarating parasailing ride which is also the perfect way to appreciate the beauty of this tropical coastline, that is if you dare keep your eyes open!

Did you know? In years gone by when this area was just a small fishing village it used to be known as Kankun, which in local Mayan dialect translates as 'nest of snakes'. Better be careful where you walk!
