Finding the Right Cancun Hotel

Cancun is one of the top vacation destinations in Mexico, but with over 150 hotels in such a relatively small area, how can you know where to stay? Here are a couple of pointers, depending on the kind of experience you’re looking to have.

  • A majority of vacationers pick Cancun hotels based on the convenience of their location and proximity to the more “touristy” attractions. This is fine – the locals, most of which cater specifically to visiting Americans, are often fluent in English and the best place to stay for this type of vacation is within what’s knows as the “Cancun Hotel Zone” on the coast.
  • For a genuine Mexican experience and to get away from the more touristy areas, look for hotels that are situated inland, away from the coast. If you move further south, or deeper into downtown Cancun, you can also find lodgings that are less touristy and more authentic.
