Go All Inclusive in Cancun and enjoy sun, sand and surf without the hassle
It takes 10 hours to fly to Cancun to top up your tan in its tropical climate. And with an All Inclusive deal, almost everything is taken care of for you, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy all the perks of your have-it-all holiday without worrying about a thing.
Cancun is split into two main districts – the central downtown area and the hotel zone. The downtown region is filled with local markets, bars and restaurants that’ll give you a taste of local cuisine and Mexican charm. The hotel zone, on the other hand, features a busy strip of hotels, shopping malls, nightclubs and a bustling beach scene that gives Cancun its party capital reputation.
Cancun, particularly the hotel zone, is renowned for its pristine beaches, with around 22 kilometres of sweeping sands to choose from. Thrill-seekers often head to the city’s largest beach, Playa Delfines, which is known for its bright blue waters and abundance of watersports, such as parasailing and jet-skiing.
Or the family-friendly North Beach is located at the northern end of the small island Isla Mujeres and has breathtaking views across the ocean with the opportunity to paddle in the warm, shallow water. Although North Beach is not on the main hotel zone strip, it’s easy to get to via a ferry which leaves from downtown Cancun every half an hour or so. Another popular beach just south of Cancun is Playa del Carmen, which is lined with clubs and All Inclusive hotels, meaning there’s always something going on.
What’s included in your holiday
The great thing about going on an All Inclusive holiday to Cancun is that pretty much everything is arranged for you. As part of the package, you can usually expect to have your airport transfers to and from the hotel and all your meals and drinks included in the price. You may also get a selection of watersports, daytime activities and night-time entertainment as part of the deal. However, make sure you read the hotel information before booking so you’re aware of what’s included in the upfront cost.
