Cancun and the region known as Riviera Maya sit on the stunning Caribbean coast of Mexico on the Yucatan peninsula and boast miles of long curving, white sand beaches bordered by the calm turquoise waters of the Gulf of Mexico.
Cancun is the perfect holiday destination. Families love the huge all-inclusive resorts with multiple pools, a range of exciting activities and stunning beaches; Friends and couples favour the trendy nightlife and world class shopping.
The region also boasts some of the most beautiful and best preserved historical temples from the ancient Mayan civilisation and no holiday to Mexico is complete without visiting these breath-taking archaeological sites.
Usually a little cheaper than many of the Caribbean islands, Cancun has year-round direct flights from the UK. Fly direct from London with British Airways or Virgin Atlantic or indirect from other regional airports.
