Known for its beaches, resorts and nightlife, Cancun is one of Mexico's top destinations and a great place for a weekend trip. This itinerary is based on a stay at an all-inclusive resort in the Hotel Zone, so it will involve a lot of downtime on the beach and meals at the resort. If you want to avoid the crowds and find better hotel deals, consider traveling to Cancun during the summer and fall. While there will be humidity and occasional rains, prices are lower.
Hurricanes, spring break parties and sargassum algae are other hazards you should be aware of in Cancun when you visit the Yucatan coast. Cancun isn't really the best place for snorkeling and diving trips (often with rough waters, poor visibility, and lots of dead corals), but for fans, May and June are the best months for fans.
