Luxury Cancun Holidays

The Miami of Mexico

Cancun

Cancun’s reputation as a stylish international playground has won it the nickname ‘the Miami of Mexico’. The premier resort on the Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun’s soft white-sand beaches and never-ending supply of sleek bars, restaurants and shopping malls jostle for visitors’ attention.

First up, the beaches. There’s around 14 miles’ worth of them, all pristine white sands and palm-tree borders. Our hotels have prime beachfront positions, with siesta-worthy sunloungers set around sea-view infinity pools. The snorkelling and scuba diving around Cancun are fantastic, too – as well as reefs, caves and the odd shipwreck, you’ll also find a quirky underwater ‘museum’ of sunken statues and sculptures. 

If you prefer dry land, Cancun boasts a number of championship golf courses (head for the El Camaleon Mayakoba Golf Club to play around mangroves, canals and jungle), and you can reach the best of Mexico's Mayan ruins from here, including its most-visited site – El Castillo at the incredible Chichen Itza.

When to go

Mexico is a year-round beach destination, with temperatures rarely dipping below 20°C – even in winter. The summer months are at their hottest between May and September, which have average temperatures of 28°C. While short rain showers are possible, they are helpful in taking the edge off the heat.

Visa Information

UK citizens travelling to Mexico do not currently require a visa. You will need to fill out a tourist card, which you will be provided with on arrival.

Tipping

Mexico has a tipping etiquette similar to the USA. Service employees typically receive little or no base salary, so tips make up the bulk of their salary. Try to tip about 15% of the bill in restaurants and bars unless the bill includes propina (gratuity). Taxi drivers do not usually get tipped unless they have provided an extra service like loading or unloading your bags.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Mexico is Spanish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
