Cancun Holidays

We've all know New York as the city that doesn't sleep, and if it's fun your after any hour of the day, Mexico’s favourite holiday destination is sure to impress. With such an array of things to see and do, both day and night, Cancun offers some of the best beaches on the Mexican Riviera with exceptional quality all-inclusive hotels and resorts that will make your stay a breeze.

The ideal twin destination to a glamorous trip to Las Vegas, Cancun offers the freedom of golden beaches, adrenaline-fuelled watersports and lively nightlife; we recommend visiting Coco Bongos, one of Cancun’s best night time venues, for a show like no other. During the day, indulge in a spot of designer shopping, or take to the waters for some snorkelling and diving that will introduce you to Mexico’s vibrant sea life including turtles, rays and bull sharks.

If you’re a night owl looking for a slice of paradise infused with after-dark fun, Cancun has to be next on your list.

Destination Highlights
  • A lively resort which really comes to life after dark
  • Stunning white sand beaches with bright blue waters
  • Packed with watersports from windsurfing to paragliding
  • Enjoy a host of night spots from Coco Bongos to Senor Frogs

    “When visiting Coco Bongos, it’s worth paying the VIP gold member prices. You get to skip the long queues, have your own private area and table, and can enjoy unlimited drinks all served by a member of staff so you don’t have to go to the bar yourself".

    “Try Horchata. It’s an authentic Mexican drink made from rice, tastes slightly like rice pudding – be warned it's very filling".

    "Cancun is in a perfect location to venture off to see the Mayan city of Chichen Itza. Pack a camera and head off on our excursion to learn all about the Mayan civilisation".
