Quick Guide to Cancun
Mexico is known for its stunning beaches, amazing ancient Mayan ruins and its gorgeous Spanish colonial towns. This all mixes with a fantastic and vibrant culture as well as year round sun. If you're after all of this at a great price with the sunshine and clear seas of the Caribbean thrown in for good measure, then it's time to think about cheap holidays to Cancun.
Cancun is made up of two distinct parts, the Old Town and the Hotel Zone. The Old Town has plenty of atmosphere and a great range of nightlife spots, but no real beaches to speak of. The Hotel Zone is almost the complete opposite with nothing but long sandy beaches as far as the eye can see, and wonderful all inclusive hotels designed to cater to your every whim.
Although Spanish is the local language, expect English to be widely spoken in the Hotel Zone as well as at the tourist sights on the Yucatan Peninsula. Old Town Cancun can be harder to get by in without Spanish though, so be patient and learn a few words!
