Being a beach destination and where most of the activities are outdoors, it is advisable to always bring a hat, fresh clothes and also anti-solar lotion or sunscreen. If you go on a nature tour, some insect repellent is recommended.
There are so many options in Cancun and Riviera Maya that it is really difficult to decide what to do, our suggestion is that you decide what type of vacation you want. With this in mind it is easier to choose activities. You want some adventure, ecotourism, cultural or just relax on the beach and indulge in a spa. Probably the mix of some, right? For all this and more you have Cancun and the Riviera, we recommend you look for information with time to plan your trip, and if you are one of the people who prefer to improvise and look for trips already in Cancun, then your best allies will be the concierge and the table of hospitality at the hotel.
Cancun has 20 kilometers of beaches, all located along Boulevard Kukulkan, the only avenue in the Hotel Zone of Cancun. If you are looking for a quiet beach either because you travel with children, elderly people or do not know how to swim, we recommend choosing a hotel from those located from km 3 to 8.5 of the hotel zone, since in this part the waves of the sea stick very softly on the beach, because they are in front of Isla Mujeres forming a natural bay known as Bahía de Isla Mujeres, which by the way is also an area for snorkeling and much visited diving.
Of course! We receive millions of people every year without any accidents. The local people are extremely friendly, all that is asked is that they have the same precautions as they do in their places of origin.
Throughout the Caribbean, there is a large amount of sargassum (a kind of seaweed) that began to reach the beaches. It was something atypical and fortunately it has been solved. That doesn't mean that sargassum ceases to exist, nor is it a bad thing because it is part of nature and is something you will always find on any beach.
