Where is Cancún, Mexico

Cancún is located on the Yucatán Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo, in southeastern Mexico. The city is part of the Riviera Maya, a tourist region along the Caribbean coast.

How to get to Cancún

Getting to Cancún by plane

As a popular vacation destination, there are regular direct flights from different places throughout the US and Europe to Cancún. To find good deals, I recommend searching for flights a few weeks in advance.

You should definitely use a flight comparison site like to find the best option.

From Cancún Airport to the city center

You’ve just landed in Cancún and are wondering what’s the best way to get to the city center? No problem, there are several options. The ADO bus is the most economical option. For 120 MXN (about € 6.50/$ 7), it will take you to the city center in about 30 minutes.

A little note: the bus station is a bit hidden, so it’s best to ask for directions when buying your ticket.

Taking a cab is also an option, but please only use official taxis. Expect a 30-minute ride and a fare of around € 40/ $ 45 (to the city center or hotel zone). You can also check the approximate fare on the Cancún Airport page.

If you prefer more comfort, there are organized private transfers. These take about 30 minutes and start at €23.50/$25.50 per person. To ensure you can leave right away, booking your transfer before your trip is best. GetYourGuide offers good options.

Cancún Transport – How to get around

Transportation in Cancún is generally very well-developed.

If you stay in the hotel zone, you can reach many places and beaches on foot.

For more remote sites, you can use public transportation such as vans (colectivos) or buses. The vans cost around 10 MXN ( € 0.50/$ 0.60) per ride.

Of course, regular cabs are also available, but they are not always necessarily inexpensive. Another option is the transport app DiDi or Uber.

Our comprehensive Cancún Itinerary – 4 Days

Alright, let’s get down to business. Now that you have all the necessary info to plan your trip let’s dive into your 4-day itinerary for Cancún.

Cancún in 4 Days – Day 1: Discover Cancúns Hotel Zone

After a long journey, you might be feeling a bit tired. But don’t worry, we’ll take it easy on our first day, focusing on the laid-back exploration of Cancún’s renowned Hotel Zone and its picturesque beaches. It’s the perfect way to ease into your Mexican adventure.

Choose one or more of the following things to do in Cancún’s Hotel Zone.

Zona Hotelera – Get to know Cancún’s Hotel Zone

The Zona Hotelera in Cancún is a paradise for resort lovers. This narrow spit of land is a genuine highlight you don’t want to miss – even if you’re not staying in one of the luxurious hotels. Lined with gorgeous beaches, chic restaurants, and a variety of activities, this popular area has something for everyone.

From jet ski rides to laid-back beach clubs, you can make your day exactly what you want it to be.

Granted, the activities in the Zona Hotelera come at a price – but the wonderful beaches here can be visited completely free of charge.

Even if you’re not staying at one of the resorts, it’s worth a trip to this area. Whether for a day at the beach, a dinner with a sea view, or just to stroll and marvel.

Playa Delfines

After visiting several beaches in Cancún, Playa Delfines definitely became our favorite. Why? It’s simple: here you’ll find everything that makes a beach day perfect. Soft, white sand, crystal clear water, and most importantly, fewer tourist crowds than other places.

I’m not gonna lie – it’s still a pretty touristy beach, but less crowded than many others in Cancún’s hotel zone.

And for the perfect souvenir photo, here you can find the popular “Cancún” letters.

Extra tip: If you’re going by public transportation, the bus stop is nearby.

Playa Tortugas

Having already talked about Playa Delfines, Playa Tortugas is another great beach in Cancún.

This beach offers a mix of exciting activities and relaxation. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to try water sports like jet skiing and parasailing. But there are also bars and restaurants in plenty.

The white sand invites you to relax, and the calmer waters make it an ideal place for families. Whether you’re looking for action or just want to unwind, Playa Tortugas is a great option.

And how about just doing nothing for a change? Sometimes, you just need a day to slow down and enjoy the resort you’ve booked to the fullest. You have all the options if you’re staying in the Cancun Hotel Zone.

Start the day with a hearty breakfast before jumping into the hotel pool for a refreshing dip. You can swim a few lengths, read a good book, or just enjoy some extended sunbathing. And if you feel like it, order a fruity cocktail right from the pool bar.

Many resorts offer spa treatments and massages for those who want to pamper themselves even more.

Sunrise at the beach

Getting up early is typically not your thing? I completely understand, but for the sunrise on the beach of Cancún, it’s worth setting your alarm a little earlier.

Find a cozy spot on the white sand of the coast and take in the picturesque play of colors over the Caribbean Ocean.

Great places to admire the sunrise from Cancún are the hotel zone beaches, such as our favorite Playa Delfines. These can be visited completely free of charge.

Depending on the season, sunrise takes place between 06 and 07:30 a.m. On this page, you can find the exact time for each day.

La Isla Shopping Village

If no trip is complete for you without an extended shopping spree, then La Isla Shopping Village in the hotel zone is just the place for you.

In addition to a huge selection of stores and restaurants, there are plenty of entertainment options. These include the Interactive Aquarium, the Tequila Museum, and “Ripley’s Believe It or Not.” There’s also a “Kids Paradise” for younger visitors where they can let off some steam

The open architecture of the mall, complete with water canals and outdoor areas, gives the place a unique atmosphere. So even if you’re not the biggest shopping enthusiast, it’s worth the visit just for the scenery and entertainment.

Right in the plaza of La Isla, you will also find the Ferris wheel El Sol de Cancún, which takes us to our next point.

El Sol de Cancún Sky Wheel – Ferries Wheel

Opening Hours Ferries Wheel: 01 pm – 10 pm

Entrance Fee Ferries Wheel: 300 MXN (ca. 16 €/$ 17.50 USD)

Would you like to experience Cancún from a different angle? Then, you may enjoy the El Sol de Cancún Ferris Wheel, also known as the Cancún Sky Wheel. With a height of 65 meters, it offers you a spectacular view of the hotel zone.

The 35 Ferris wheel gondolas are air-conditioned, and there is even a VIP gondola with a glass floor, leather seats, and atmospheric music.

The view over the rooftops of Cancún is worth it. However, you should know that such a ride may not be the optimal activity for travelers on a budget.

Extra tip: If you decide to visit, planning it at sunset time is best. The lights of the city and the colors of the sky create a beautiful atmosphere. Simply an ideal place to end the day and take some great photos.

4 Days in Cancún – Day 2: Explore Cancún’s Downtown & Culture

Museo Maya de Cancún & Zona Arqueológica de San Miguelito

Opening Hours Museo Maya: Tue-Sun: 09 am – 5 pm; Mondays closed

Entrance Fee Museo Maya: 90 MXN (ca. 5 €/$ 5.20 USD)

If you need a break from the sun and the beach and want to learn about the rich history of the region at the same time, the Museo Maya de Cancún, with the adjacent Zona Arqueológica de San Miguelito, is a great way to do so.

Here, you can admire impressive artifacts of the Mayan culture and stroll through the ruins of San Miguelito, located right inside the museum grounds.

The museum is relatively small and not the most impressive, to be completely honest, but definitely worth seeing for history and culture buffs.

It’s a bit like a little trip back in time, right in the middle of the modern city of Cancún.

El Rey Ruins

Opening Hours El Rey: 09 am – 04.30 pm

Entrance Fee El Rey: 70 MXN (ca. 4 €/$ 4 USD)

If you think Cancún is only sun, beaches, and partying, you probably haven’t heard of the El Rey Ruins. This archaeological site offers an exciting glimpse into the ancient world of the Maya.

Stroll through ancient stone structures, and you’ll feel a little bit like an explorer.

The ruins here might not be as extensive or well-preserved as other famous sites on the Yucatán peninsula like Chichén Itzá or Ek Balam. But on the plus side, getting it’s much more inexpensive.

El Rey is also easy to reach, as it is located right in the hotel zone of Cancún. A visit is, therefore, an ideal opportunity to incorporate a little culture into your beach vacation.

taco express, the best tacos in cancún, tacos on a plate
For us, these were definitely the best tacos in Cancún

Try the best Tacos in Cancún – Taco Express

Sometimes, it’s the most inconspicuous places that hold the biggest surprises. Right next to the ADO bus terminal, where the express vans to Playa del Carmen leave, you’ll find a small grill serving the best tacos in Cancún – Taxo Express. It may not be the most eye-catching place on the outside, but don’t be fooled: This place is pure authenticity.

The selection is varied, and the prices are more than fair. Whether you’re a meat lover or a vegetarian, everyone will get their money’s worth. You can even “pimp” your taco with different ingredients. A small line is almost always waiting in front of the entrance – a sure sign of good taste.

After discovering this place by accident when we arrived hungry on the airport bus, we returned two more times to fill our bellies with these delicious tacos. Not only are the tacos top-notch, but the staff is super friendly. A real Cancún insider tip that you should not miss.

Playa El Niño

If you like it a bit more local, El Niño beach is a great option. Enjoy the sun alongside the locals and avoid the touristy beaches of the hotel zone.

Even though El Niño beach (“kid beach”) isn’t quite as idyllic as the beaches in the hotel zone, you can still have a great beach day here.

Especially if you are coming from Isla Mujeres, El Niño Beach is a great choice since it is right near Puerto Juarez, the main port of embarkation for the ferry to Isla Mujeres.

chicken quesadilla in market 23 in cancun
You can enjoy such a delicious chicken quesadilla at Mercado 23

Mercado 23 – Visit a local market

Opening Hours Mercado 23: 06 am – 10 pm

Entrance Fee Mercado 23: free of charge

Like they say – A local market is one of the best ways to discover a place from an untouristy perspective. Hence, Mercado 23 in the center of Cancún is perfect for a tasty snack.

From fresh fruits and vegetables to regional delicacies like relleno negro and cochinita, this is where you experience the authentic side of Cancún.

We were especially excited about the chicken quesadillas we tried at a stand in the market. They definitely tasted homemade and brought just that authentic taste we hoped for from our visit.

The market is easily accessible via the main streets of Avenida Chichén Itzá and Tulum.

Bao Vegan: The best vegetarian food in Cancún

Admittedly, although I was pleasantly surprised by the abundant vegetarian choices in Mexico (especially compared to some other countries in Latin America, like the food in Peru), not every restaurant offers vegan options.

Bao Vegan Restaurant is an ideal place to stuff your face with delicious vegan dishes.

The restaurant is located in the center of Cancún, so it’s easy to find.

Extra tip: Grab a well-chilled fresh coconut.

4 Days trip to Cancún – Day 3: Water & Beach adventures

Now that we have seen Cancún’s most important sights, it’s time to get into the water. If you are not a big fan of water activities, feel free to choose another day trip from “Day 4” or plan another relaxing beach day.

Go snorkeling

Are you a fan of underwater worlds? Then, a snorkeling trip in Cancún is probably just what you need.

You can simply grab your snorkeling gear and jump into the water on the beaches of Cancún. The best place to do this is probably Playa Delfines, with its relatively calm waters.

If you’re looking for something more awe-inspiring, consider taking a snorkeling excursion or tour. You can either head to Isla Mujeres on your own or opt for a guided tour.

Whale shark snorkeling near Isla Mujeres, the unique MUSA underwater museum, or boat tours to various snorkeling spots in the area are especially recommended. And if you want the complete water program, check out Xel-Há or Xcaret (we’ll introduce them in more detail later). There are so many places to choose from.

A Day Trip to Isla Mujeres

Travel Time: about 20 Minutes

Travel Cost: ca. 290 MXN (ca. 15,50 €/$ 17)

Exact Schedule: On the Ultramar Website, here

Isla Mujeres is just a stone’s throw from Cancún and is a true paradise for beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts. Here, you will find some of the most beautiful beaches in Mexico, inviting you to sunbathe and relax. But that’s not all.

If you’re up for a bit of adventure, there are plenty of options open to you. From diving and snorkeling excursions to water sports activities, there is something for everyone. And if you just want to relax, there’s hardly anything better than laying down in a hammock on the beach and enjoying the view of the turquoise waters of the Caribbean.

So, a day trip to Isla Mujeres offers the perfect mix of relaxation and adventure and is a great way to escape the hustle and bustle of Cancún for a day.

You, too, can swim with these impressive animals

Snorkeling with Whale Sharks

Tour Duration: approx. 6 hours

Tour Price: ca. 145 €/ $ 155 USD

Tour Reservation: You can find our favorite tour at Viator

Tour-Season: May-September

If you are looking for a truly unique adventure, then whale shark snorkeling at Isla Mujeres is for you. It’s definitely an experience you won’t soon forget. For us, it was the absolute highlight of our Mexico trip.

First, you take a boat ride to look for the animals. As soon as you arrive at the snorkeling point, you can get ready to jump into the water. However, only two people (+ guide) of a boat are allowed in the water at a time to avoid disturbing the animals. The sight of these gentle creatures up close is simply breathtaking.

Important to know: Respect the animals and keep your distance. Touching them is absolutely forbidden.

Extra tip: If you want to spend as little time as possible on the boat, you can ideally start the tour from Isla Mujeres. Take the ferry from Cancún early in the morning or spend the night on the island.

statues musa underwater museum isla mujeres cancun

MUSA Underwater Museum

Opening Hours MUSA: 09 am – 05 pm

Entrance Fee MUSA Toures: from $ 50 USD; Snorkeling: ca. $150 USD; Diving: ca. $120 USD

The MUSA Underwater Museum is an unforgettable experience for all art and water lovers. Tours depart daily from Cancún and Isla Mujeres to this unique museum under the ocean surface.

The choice is yours: snorkel, dive, or take a glass-bottom boat. Depending on your spirit of adventure, your swimming level, and perhaps whether you’re traveling with children, there is a suitable option for everyone.

Explore up to 500 life-size statues created by artist Jason Decaires Taylor. This museum visit is definitely unlike any other museum you’ve visited before.

4 days in Cancun Suggested Itinerary – Day 4: Plan a Day Trip from Cancún

On our last day, we also want to visit a little bit more of Cancún’s surroundings. Choose one of the following day trips on our list or even combine them to see even more of the Yucatán Peninsula.

the pyramid chichen itza, view of pyramid with dragon statue in foreground
One of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World: Chichén Itzá

Chichén Itzá

Travel time: ca. 2½ hours

Transport option: Bus, Taxi, rental car, or guided Tour

Chichén Itzá is more than just another ruin in Mexico – it is a modern wonder of the world and an absolute highlight of any Yucatán trip. The crowds that flock here every day speak for themselves. But believe me, the hustle and bustle is worth it.

The impressive ruins are considered one of the main sights of the region and a true must-see. Because of its proximity to the city, you can easily visit it as a day trip from Cancún.

You have two easy ways to get there: Either you use public transportation, or you book a guided tour. Both options have their advantages and disadvantages.

Extra tip: Visit the ruins as early as possible to avoid the crowds. We got there as early as 8 a.m. and shared the view of the pyramid with only a few others.

tulum ruins by the sea, tulum day trip from cancún
View of the impressive ruins by the sea in Tulum


Travel Time: ca. 2 hours

Transport options: Bus, Taxi, or rental car

Tulum certainly ranks among the highlights in Yucatán. The Mayan ruins, located directly on the coast, are historically interesting and offer an impressive backdrop with the Caribbean Sea in the background. Tulum is a place that will delight both culture and beach lovers.

The beach area of Tulum holds its own charm. With small boutiques and cafes, it is a pleasant place to stroll. The backdrop of sea, sand, and architecture makes the area particularly photogenic – you might as well call it Instagrammable.

Tulum is one of those places that divides opinions. For some, it is the absolute highlight of a Yucatán round trip. Personally, I found Tulum way too touristy. So a day trip to Tulum is perfect to form your own opinion about this place.

Cenote Mexiko, Valladolid, green water cenote
A visit to a cenote is something you should not miss in Mexico.

Swim in a Cenote

Cenotes are one of the most fascinating natural phenomena of Yucatán and an absolute must-do when you are in Cancún. With over 6,000 cenotes on the Yucatán Peninsula, you are truly spoiled for choice. These underground freshwater springs are breathtakingly beautiful and welcome refreshment.

You have several options for exploring these natural pools. Either head out on your own using public transportation or a rental car or join an organized tour from Cancún (like this one). Whether you just want to swim or even dive, cenotes are the ideal place for both.

The atmosphere in these natural caves is almost a bit magical. The crystal clear water and impressive stalactites simply create a one-of-a-kind setting.

playa del carmen, statue, beach, mexico day trip from cancún

Playa del Carmen

Travel time: approx. 1 hour

Transportoption: Van, Taxi, or rental car

Playa del Carmen is a versatile destination located just a short drive from Cancún. Everyone will find exactly what they are looking for here – whether it is a luxurious day at a resort, a relaxing day at the beach, or a night out in one of the many bars and clubs.

Those who like it a little calmer will also find what they are looking for. Off the main roads, there are smaller, less touristy spots that offer a more authentic glimpse into local life.

A day trip to Playa del Carmen makes a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of Cancún.

xcaret adventure park at the riviera maya, child balancing on a rope over turquoise sea water

Xcaret Park

Opening Hours Xcaret Park: 08.30 am – 10 pm

Entrance Fee Xcaret Park: from 105 €/ $ 120 USD

Tickets Xcaret Park: best price online, e.g. über GetYourGuide

Getting to Xcaret Park: by taxi Taxi (ca. 75 €/$ 80 USD), by Bus (ca. 3 €/$3 USD), or rental car

Xcaret Park is more than just a theme park – it’s a mix of a cultural center and outdoor adventure park located on the picturesque Mayan Riviera.

Get a taste of the rich Mayan culture through archaeological sites and traditional ceremonies, and enjoy a range of outdoor activities.

From snorkeling in underground rivers to spotting exotic animals like flamingos and sea turtles, the park offers a wide range of experiences. Whether you’re a culture vulture or an adventure junkie, Xcaret features something for everyone.

Although admission to the park isn’t exactly a bargain, a visit can be well worth it if you take advantage of many of the included activities. However, some activities do cost extra.

BUT: I ask you, if you visit the park, not to take part in any dolphin activities! The dolphins here live in captivity. And I believe that this is not something that should be supported.

xel-ha water park and natural aquarium, jetty with plants and a palm tree by the turquoise water

Xel-Há Park

Opening Hours Xel-Há Park: Mon-Fri: 07 am – 12 am; Sat + Sun: 07 am – 10 pm

The park is known for its variety of water activities. You can go snorkeling, kayaking, or just swim in the clear water. A particular highlight of the park is the lighthouse waterslide, where you can whiz down a winding slide from a 40-meter-high lighthouse.

The park offers a combination of recreation and adventure and is a fun way to experience the natural environment of the region.

If you want to visit the park, however, you should know that not all attractions are included in the price, and it can get quite crowded.

Where to stay in Cancún

In general, you have several options in Cancún.

The most popular option is probably a resort in the hotel zone. Here, you have mostly all-inclusive options, which allow you to spend your beach vacation in complete luxury.

If you like it a bit cheaper, you can either stay in a regular hotel in the hotel zone or directly in the center of Cancún. It is even cheaper outside the tourist area.

The best Budget Option in Cancún

If you don’t want to stay in a luxury resort in the hotel zone or if you generally prefer to stay in a local neighborhood, Casa Kini is a great place for you. The neighborhood is local, and the rooms are cozy and quiet.

Casa Kini is located just a short walk from Puerto Juarez. So if you want to visit Isla Mujeres, this accommodation is ideal.

The hostess, Yesika, also lives in the building and will help you make your stay perfect. She is a real sunshine, and we could have talked with her for hours.

The only slight downside to this accommodation is that it can be difficult to find something to eat in the evening when all the restaurants in the street close.
