Everything's ready for you on a last minute holiday to sunny Cancun

Once a small fishing village, Cancun has evolved into a dazzling resort – it's palm-dotted shores are lined with sleek hotels, stylish shopping malls and glitzy nightclubs.

With an average flight time of around 10 hours, and the promise of temperatures of around 28°C in June and 23°C in January, it's a good all-rounder when it comes to last minute breaks.

Cancun is split into two areas, the downtown area is a good place to shop then stop, with its array of market stalls and local cantinas. The hotel zone is jam packed with places to stay as well as shopping malls, nightclubs and of course the super long beach, ideal for lazy days, watersports and people watching.

The nightlife on offer is varied – whether you're looking to dance till dawn or chill out with a few cocktails at sunset, there's something that will appeal. If clubbing isn't your thing there are daytrip options galore, including the Mayan ruins of Tulum, a 90-minute drive away.

The best time of year to book your last minute holiday

When it comes to last minute holidays, Cancun is a great option as not only is it sunny throughout the year, but many of its hotels offer plenty of entertainment and sporting options, so there'll be loads to do. There is some rainfall during the summer months, though this doesn't tend to last long and the climate will still be warm.

The best deals can be booked from eight weeks' in advance, right up to the last minute so keep your eyes peeled for late bargains. It's worth noting that Cancun is popular with American spring-breakers in March so those looking for a relaxed vibe may want to book outside of this time.

Other last minute holiday destinations

When it comes to affordable getaways, Cancun is by no means the only choice, as Mexico has plenty more gems on offer. Try Puerto Vallarta, for a mix of lazy beach days and sightseeing, Playa del Carmen with its spectacular sands and natural beauty, or the intimate, gated resort of Playacar for the ultimate last minute retreat.
