Cancun is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico, but why do so many people choose it? Here’s a list of some of my favorite reasons to visit Cancun:

The Caribbean Sea is beautiful.

The Caribbean Sea is an amazing place to swim. The water is warm, clear, and calm. There are so many options if you like to snorkel or scuba dive: there are plenty of beaches where you can explore the sea life on the bottom of the ocean, or if you prefer a boat trip they have plenty of options for that too!

Cancun has one of the most amazing coral reefs in the world

If you’re a beach person, then Cancun is the place for you. The coastline is pristine and beautiful with plenty of sand to lounge on or explore. You can also take advantage of their world-class snorkeling and diving sites, which are some of the best in the world.

If you’re not much of a beach person but still want to enjoy some time outdoors, there are other options as well including kayaking, fishing, and swimming at one of their many pools. Just make sure that if you go swimming during your stay that it’s at one of their designated swimming areas because they have strict laws about swimming in certain areas due to alligators!

The food is delicious.

Cancun cuisine is influenced by Mexican and Caribbean cuisines, with an added flair of its own. You can find amazing restaurants that serve dishes from all over the world. The food is fresh, healthy, and delicious! It’s also pretty affordable considering how much it would cost you in other parts of the world. The best part? The food here isn’t boring! It’s diverse, unique, exciting…and sometimes you’ll even eat something you’ve never had before!

Cancun is so affordable.

You can travel to Cancun, Mexico, and enjoy the same amenities that you would find in major cities around the world. However, you’ll spend less money than you would if you were to visit those other destinations. You can get a nice meal for $10 or less and a beer for $2 or less in most parts of Cancun. The hotel rooms are affordable too!

It’s warm almost all year long.

Cancun is warm all year round. The average temperature for the city is around 80 degrees Fahrenheit (26 degrees Celsius), making it a great place to visit at any time of the year. It’s warm enough to go swimming in the ocean, but not so hot that you’re going to die from heat exhaustion if you take a walk outside.

The weather in Cancun stays relatively consistent throughout all four seasons and doesn’t have drastic swings from one month to the next like some other places on this list might have—meaning you’ll never have an excuse not to go!

Terrific Night Life

You can go out at night and hit up some bars or clubs. There are tons of them all around town, so there’s no shortage of entertainment no matter where you go.

This is just a small sample of what Cancun has to offer; there are tons more fun activities that we haven’t mentioned yet!

Isla Blanca is not to be missed

If you want to experience the best of both worlds, Isla Blanca is the place for you. It’s a popular beach that also has great nightlife. The best part? You can relax on the sand all day or head out at night and dance until dawn!

Explore cenotes in Cancun and Riviera Maya

Cenotes are water-filled caves that are formed in the karst limestone bedrock of the Yucatan Peninsula. There are more than 700 cenotes, also known as sinkholes, in the area with each one offering its unique beauty and experience.

You can choose from a variety of activities including swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, and cave diving if you’re up for it! We would recommend checking out some caves that have become famous for their underwater rooms like Dos Ojos (two eyes) or Chac Chun Cenote which has two entrances separated by about 1 km; one entrance is located at sea level while another is connected to a natural tunnel leading directly into an underground cave system with incredible formations around every corner!

Visit Chichen Itza, an ancient Mayan city on the way to Merida

Chichen Itza is an archaeological site in the Mexican state of Yucatan. It is one of the most visited places in Mexico and a popular tourist destination. The site features well-preserved architecture and is an ideal place to visit if you are interested in Mayan culture.

Chichen Itza was built during the last phase of Maya civilization, between 900 and 1200 A.D., during the decline of their civilization due to conflicts with other cultures. According to archaeologists, this city had once been a large urban area with as many as 20,000 residents compared to its current population today at around 500 people!

It’s safe!

You should go to Cancun, Mexico because it’s safe.It’s not just that Cancun is safe. It’s one of the safest destinations in all of Latin America. You can walk around at night and not worry about being mugged or robbed by criminals. The whole city is safer than most American cities if you need some perspective on that!


So, there you have it. Cancun is a great place to visit that combines fun with safety and affordability. It’s hard not to love the beautiful Caribbean Sea, delicious food, warm weather year-round, and the ancient history of Mexico. There are plenty of things to do in Cancun and Riviera Maya too with its amazing coral reefs, cenotes, and Mayan ruins all within driving distance from each other! You can even explore Merida on your way back from Chichen Itza if you’re feeling adventurous enough as well
