Cancun used to be a tiny fishing village, but it had bigger aspirations, and like any budding socialite, it got some work done. Adding kilometres of pristine sand to its beaches (along with shiny new hotels and swaying palm trees) brought the attention it deserved, and today, basically everyone has heard of Cancun. Get to know it even better with cheap flights to Cancun from lastminute.com.au. By the time your trip is over, you’ll be BFFs.
Getting Around Cancun
It’s about a 20km ride from Cancun International Airport (CUN) to Zona Hotelera, where—you guessed it—most accommodation in Cancun is located. Just use those feet to get to the beach. What else do you need? If you’re craving an adventure, hop in a cab or book a coordinated day tour.
When You Land…
What’s better than an Island of Women? Well, that’s what Isla Mujeres translates to, but you’ll find more turtles here than ladies—sorry, fellas. Express boats start at 5 a.m., so hop off early-morning Cancun flights and hop on the ferry to fun.
Afternooners, you know what to do. You’ve been on that sun-less airplane for a while now, and you need vitamin D, stat. Zona Hotelera has plenty of beachfront real estate, so get sunning!
Evening arrivals on flights to Cancun are just in time for the action in Zona Hotelera, which starts early and ends, well, whenever you feel like it.
Live Like a Local
Living like a local is as simple as hopping on the bus to downtown. Walk like a local along Malecon Tajamar; shop like a local at Plaza Peninsula; and party like a local at Parque Las Palapas. Boom—you’re a pro.
