Let’s be frank. We know you’ve seen those spring break videos of co-eds getting showered with tequila at a beachside bar. You’re probably wondering where this magical place is. Well, chances are that it’s Cancun. Located in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, Cancun has nothing but good times in store for you. You can enjoy margaritas on the beach, dive to an underwater art gallery and visit an ancient Mayan village all in one day. Book a Cancun holiday today and be on your way tomorrow.
When you think of pyramids, the first place that comes to mind is probably Egypt, isn’t it? Would you believe us if we told you that the lovely country of Mexico has some of its own impressive prisms? Check out lastminute.com.au’s awesome Cancun car rental options and make the short drive to the ancient city of Chichen Itza. It’s just outside the city limits and well worth a day trip. It’s hard to believe an ancient civilisation like the Mayans were able to construct such monuments, but they did. You may have heard something about ancient human sacrifices in the area, but you won’t need to worry about any of those on your Cancun holidays—they ended a few centuries ago.
Have you ever wanted to go to an art gallery underwater? You’ve probably never even thought about such a thing, but hey, they’re real. Just off the coast lies three art galleries in depths between three and six metres, containing over 500 sculptures. You can dive amongst the many sculptures while socialising with the local fish.
For some great shopping, head to Kukulcan Plaza, where big name brand stores and small local boutiques sit side by side. It’ll be hard to find better T-shirt deals than in this mall. If you’re looking for a smaller shopping centre, then the Plaza Caracol is the place for you. It’s a beautiful outdoor space that allows for you to shop while getting a tan—both of which are almost a requirement during Quintana Roo holidays .
Cancun’s location on the Caribbean Sea makes it a prime location for epic seafood. Any of the hotel resorts have restaurants serving up the finest plates of lobster, mahi mahi and whatever else the local fishermen can wrangle in on their lures. If don’t want to go far for food, the hotel you stay at through your Cancun holiday packages for sure has a suitable restaurant that will take care of all your hunger needs.
We’re not sure if we really need to tell you about the nightlife in Cancun, but we will anyway. Just take your pick of the beachside resorts—the one with the loudest music aren’t always the best—and party your arse off all night. There’s also the option to head inland to downtown Cancun and see what kind of trouble you can get into there.
