Cancun Tourism is so varied, that you could plan a vacation as long as a month and will never be bored. You may be doing something different every day. Cancun is located at the northeast corner of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico’s state of Quintana Roo.

The Yucatan Peninsula has been blessed with the most beautiful beaches one can imagine.
They start at the Gulf of Mexico in Progresso, near the important city of Merida and around the “corner” of Cancun and going south on what is called the Mayan Riviera all the way to Playa del Carmen and beyond to the Belize border.
Top Warm white sand beaches, crystal clear seas, Romantic Getaways, exclusive Resorts and hotels, restaurants and nightlife; this is Cancun, a very complete resort where you could keep busy around the clock just participating in the many activities and tours available.
The beaches are one of Cancun's most famous attractions, and everyone seems to enjoy the endless activities that abound on almost every beach like volleyball, parasailing, snorkeling or just a relaxing day in a hammock.

Weather in Cancun
The climate is typically tropical. It is warm all year round with the eternal breezes from the Caribbean to alleviate the heat. It rains sporadically, but it stops and you keep going to the beach.
The ocean water temperature reaches its highest point in late August early September. Then some days it can be like swimming in a warm bathtub. Even during the coolest times of the year, the water is still okay to swim in. It is always hot outside!
