Why Visit Cancun
The area surrounding Cancun is rich with archeological sites to explore, including popular Mayan ruins such as Chichen Itza, Coba, and Tulum. But we won't judge you if you prefer to just stick to the resorts and work on your tan.
When to Visit Cancun
If you're visiting for the sun, consider avoiding the rainy season from August to October. Cancun is also a popular spring break location, which can either be a reason to go or a reason to stay away, depending on your interests.
