One of the most attractive reasons to visit Cancun is its warm weather, even in winter season; travelers from cold lands like the United States and Canada flock here to Cancun's beautiful beaches to cool off. On the other hand, although it is hotter in summer, there are many ways to keep cool, since the warm weather in the state of Quintana Roo also means pleasant temperatures in the sea, ideal for scuba diving, snorkeling and surfing.
2. Stunning Beaches
Although visiting the beaches tops the list of activities and attractions Quintana Roo is known for, Cancun has stunningly beautiful scenery everywhere you look. This Mayan city boasts beaches of fine white sand, crystal clear water that looks turquoise from a distance, and is adorned with palm trees and warm breezes, definitely an ideal environment to relax while sipping a piña colada.
3. Excellent Gastronomy
For many, the gastronomy of each country or region of the world is considered a cultural reference and even a tourist attraction. Mexico is no exception, let's remember that since 2010 Mexican food is considered Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. The dishes born here are a source of pride for its inhabitants, its flavors such as corn, chili and condiments like achiote, have crossed borders and have achieved international fame, that's why if you come to these lands we recommend eating chiles en nogada, enchiladas verdes, enmoladas, panuchos and tacos al pastor!
4. Beachfront hotels with the best sunsets
Whichever hotel you decide to stay at, the beach is, without a doubt, the place to witness, photograph or simply admire the best sunrises.
Who can resist having breakfast in front of the sea, delicious pancakes dipped in maple syrup, accompanied by fruit with yogurt, orange juice and coffee? Undoubtedly, it is one of the best ways to start the day.
