Lounge on Pristine Beaches 

You don’t often think about the fact that Cancun has Caribbean beaches, but all Beach Worshippers know they are among the most beautiful stretches of pure white sand and jewel-toned water you can find. The weather is perfect for listening to the ocean all day while you daydream on a Bali bed, or you could find one of many water and land activities around, like jet skiing or practice yoga. Throw in some beach-side drinks and we could be there all day.   

Taste Local Flavors and More 

While we’re talking about the obvious, let’s not forget that you can find amazing culinary options almost anywhere you set foot in Cancun. If you’re the Experiential Traveler, roam the streets of Downtown Cancun and taste local flavors at the street markets. For those who prefer a dining experience, the city’s resorts also feature award-winning restaurants that will satisfy your cravings. From the Ritz-Carlton’s two AAA Five Diamond restaurants–Fantino and The Club Grill– to the unconventional culinary experience of eating blindfolded at The Black Hole; you know you’ll have something to look forward to every meal.  

Adventure Awaits 

The Yucatan Peninsula is home to a wide variety of sea life, making Cancun one of the world’s best places for warm-water diving. Snorkeling is a fun way to bond with the family while spotting colorful fish, or you can dive deeper into the MUSA underwater museum for a unique experience. Thrill Seekers can venture to nearby areas like Cozumel for nighttime diving, or Tulum to immerse yourself in the adrenaline rush of ziplining, rappelling, and kayaking. If you are looking for a cultural experience, the ancient Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza or Coba are a short drive. Cancun offers a wide variety of activities anyone can enjoy, and Amstar can help you explore with many excursion options.  

Ain’t No Party Like a Cancun Party 

What would a trip to Cancun be without a night out? When the sun goes down, Downtown Cancun comes alive with flashing lights, live music, and clubs open all night. The historic Coco Bongo is a good place to enjoy the view, people-watch and get the night started. When you’re ready for a night on the town, Señor Frogs or Carlos N’ Charlie’s are great local spots to visit. Make sure to stop by Grand Mambo Café to practice the salsa moves you learned earlier that day.  

Cancun will be waiting with all this and more once you’re ready to go on your Someday Getaway.
