Cancun’s heart is the city’s downtown, where locals and travelers unite around the food stalls and shops of central Parque Las Palapas. The city is also known for its nightlife, and a number of waterfront clubs light up the after-hours scene in the area’s Hotel Zone.

Quieter spots are also plentiful in Cancun, ideal for tranquil days on the beach. On the south side, you’ll find the serene blue waters of Puerto Morelos. Just a ferry-hop away, visit the white-sand beaches of Isla Mujeres and the deep-sea sculptures of the MUSA Underwater Museum of Art nearby.
