About Cancun


The Mayans believed the night sky to be a window to the Gods. Gazing up at the dome of stars that covers Cancún confirms that, as in many things, they may have been correct.

Cancún’s Maya Barrier Reef is the longest in the world.

Cancún is not an internationally renowned resort by chance. In the 1970s, the Mexican authorities decided that this glorious, 14-mile sweep of crushed-coral sand along the Caribbean Sea was too good to keep to themselves, and decided to create a resort that would give Acapulco a run for its money. Decades later, Cancún attracts everyone from cooing honeymooners to party-hungry spring breakers – and with a choice of high-rise hotels on the coast and quaint boutiques and B Bs in El Centro, it makes sure they all feel at home.

In January 1970, Cancún had only three residents – all caretakers of a coconut plantation.
