White sand, the sun and the sound of the sea are just some of the ingredients that make Cancun a unique destination. The city is located in the state of Quintana Roo where you can find white sandy beaches lapped by turquoise blue waters. It is a genuine tourist paradise that offers an endless number of activities to enjoy during your holidays, but there is also a not so well-known urban area that is buzzing with life. Would you like to join us there?

We are well aware that you love the sunshine and the beach, but we would also like to introduce you to a lesser known and less visible side of Cancun: its city centre. Here you can pamper your stomach by going to the renowned Mercado 28, where you will find restaurants and food stalls selling typical local dishes from the various regions of Mexico, along with all kinds of handicrafts.

Very close to the market is the well-known Plaza Bonita, a colonial-style shopping centre built in the form of a village where you are sure to get some great photos. If you continue strolling the city streets you are bound to find the El Ceviche roundabout, a historical monument that welcomes every visitor upon their arrival. You can also visit the Palapas Park where you can enjoy performances of local music. How does that appeal to you?

Apart from its city centre, among the area’s greatest riches are its extraordinary natural parks such as Xcaret, an ideal place to go with the family to discover subterranean rivers and the beautiful coral reef aquarium. Other amazing attractions you can enjoy here include a butterfly house, an aviary, sea turtles and, for the more adventurous, Jaguar Island, a sacred animal for the ancient Mayans.
