Hostelling International Tripbook for

Cancún

9 Entries

Sun-baked white sands, crystal-clear water and blue skies come to mind when imagining the coastal city of Cancún, Mexico. The tropical location and vibrant nightlife and restaurant scene mean it’s a hotspot for holiday makers and college students wanting to soak up the sun and vibrant atmosphere. The Hotel Zone is a haven for tourists and its nightclubs are some of the best in the world. You can watch spectacular light shows, listen to some of the world’s best DJs, and dance until the sun rises. Downtown Cancún is less expensive and more authentic than its counterpart, and here, you can visit Market 28: a colourful local market selling everything from pottery to blankets, all locally made. You can’t visit Cancún without exploring the Mayan ruins and one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, the ancient city of Chichen Itza, with its towering and much-photographed pyramid, El Castillo.
