I went to Cancun in the middle of October last year for a two-week break with Thompson. The flight took us from Manchester to Cancun and was approx 9 hours. The Mexicans like their paperwork and therefore it took us around an hour or more to get out of the airport and begin the ten-minute journey...

*Update* pictures added - see below. Cancun is to Mexico as Benidorm is to Spain. Despite this, we went and had a great time. Here’s the op: The place we stayed was an all-inclusive resort, the Moon Palace, so some of this opinion will relate to the specific resort. See http://www.moon...

CANCUN, MEXICO Fed up of cold weather? Need a holiday? Can't think of where to go? The holiday resort of Cancun on Mexico's Caribbean coast is becoming increasingly popular with U.K. travellers each year, and with all it has to offer it is easy to see why. But Cancun has just lately developed a...

ProHotel next to beach - clear and clean waters

ConsCommercialised, over-priced, tourist trap.

Holiday-Heaven? - No-Way! Cancun is a cheap, run-down, over-commercialised resort specifically catering for americans everything is geared to the dollar, shopping mall upon shopping mall ,very overpriced gifts, food, drinks in fact everything, not to mention the locals offering all sorts of drugs...

My husband had been to Tijuana on a short trip several years before and really fancied going to Cancun. I was in two minds about it as I suspected there would be nothing Mexican about it. Nevertheless, I was persuaded by the fact that they were doing package holidays with direct flights from...

Cancun is most famous for being the place where Pamela Anderson and Tommy - Lee Jones got married. Not really a great advert for it when you consider the problems their marriage went through later on down the line!!! However there is a lot more to Cancun than the sum of its parts - as I found out...

You either - Love it or hate it. Just like marmite! Cancun is well known for the place to be for spring break students for partying, clubbing..just letting oneself go. But there is so much more to Cancun than meets the eye. Obviously, when tourists think about taking a holiday, the first thing...

ProTrue Tropical Island heaven in the caribbean sea

ConsIt won't be unspoilt forever, go soon!

I like Cancun but I love Isla Mujeres. Isla is a little slip of an island, only five miles long and 4 miles off the coast of loud brash Cancun. It is quaint, beautiful, relatively unspoilt and peaceful beyond belief. Our first visit to Isla was two years ago when we travelled there as a day trip...

ConsHideous

- or as close as I've ever been to it anyhow. Admittedly, I was only there for about a day on my way to Belize, but that was enough for me to vow that I will never, ever return. Let me explain. This place is an object lesson in how to build a city with no soul, designed entirely to recreate the...

In summer 1998 I went on a holiday to Cancun in Mexico. This was the best holiday I have ever been on, even though I have been to many other places such as Florida, Mexico was the best.
