Do you prefer to stay at a luxury all-inclusive resort, a budget hotel, or in a private condo? Regardless of your preference, you are sure to find what you are looking for in Cancun's world famous Hotel Zone. This 14-mile strip of land that is home to resorts, hotels, condos, shopping malls, nightclubs, restaurants and gorgeous white sand beaches, holds treasured memories for millions of tourists from around the world. The hotel you stay in will be a very important part of your vacation, so it's important to do your research in order to find the perfect resort.
Cancun's Hotel Zone offers private homes and condos as well as nearly 100 hotels, ranging from budget properties on the lagoon to luxurious all-inclusive resorts overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea. Lodging can also be found in downtown Cancun (known as “El Centro”), Puerto Juarez and on Playa Mujeres. Puerto Juarez and Playa Mujeres are out of the way and are popular areas for travelers that like to avoid crowds and hustle & bustle while on vacation.
Downtown Cancun is great for people that want to get a taste of local life, stay near local shops and eateries, and not break the bank. Dining out is also generally less expensive in downtown Cancun than in the Hotel Zone.
