Cancun Activities

This sunny little part of Mexico gives you a warm glow year round! With 2 of the top 10 beaches in North America, Cancun’s sandy white beaches are great for rest and play. Go wading in the warm shallow waters, swim with dolphins or go fishing out in the deep sea. Go on an aqua tour and snorkel along coral reefs and colorful fish, but if water’s not your thing there’s plenty of fun to be had on land. You’ll be able to explore the jungles of the Riviera Maya, take a walk in beautiful eco-parks or explore the ancient Mayan ruins in nearby Tulum. Cancun’s not just a destination; it’s an experience that holds a little something for everyone!

Places to Eat

Dining in Cancun gives you a culinary experience unmatched anywhere else in Mexico! Unlike the interior where you’ll find deep, rich and spicy beef dishes, here seafood is king! Dine on fresh lobster and Caribbean delights with an island flavor.

So many different cultures have touched Cancun, and you’ll be able to sample a world of tastes from Mexican, American, African, pan-Caribbean and even authentic Asian cuisine! Enjoy buttered lobster tails, fresh catches of the day and fruits fresh off the tree. Only problem with the all-inclusive dining in Cancun is the extra weight you might bring back home from your vacation!

Cancun Nightlife

Nightlife in Cancun is a mixture of passions and pleasures. Go dancing with old and new friends alike, learn to Salsa in an afternoon and dance all night long in the Mayan ruins at Tulum. Go on a night tour through the jungle with flashlights and see the creatures that only come out when the sun goes down, or lay on soft lounges with a colorful drink in your hand. Visit party bars where people dance on the bars Coyote Ugly style, or sit in a tire swing and enjoy laid back Mexican culture. If you’re looking for live entertainment, you’ve found it in Cancun! Enjoy live music along the beach, colorful and vibrant can-can shows and world class musicians in nice, warm ambient spaces. A vacation to Cancun has something to offer for everyone, all you have to do is get outside and start exploring!

Dining

Dining in Cancun

Eating out in Cancun is an exciting experience that lets you enjoy everything from authentic Mexican food, Chinese buffets, American, seafood, fine dining and a whole host of amazing local dishes that you can’t miss. When you are in Cancun for your destination wedding, you’ll be able to have everything you’ve ever wanted to try all in the same place, and the Mexican food on the Yucatan Peninsula has a special taste that is very different from what you’d find in other areas of Mexico. First, you can get great food in the resorts, and if you have an all-inclusive package you’ll be able to get your meals free so be sure to check out what yours have to offer.

Some of the best restaurants outside the resort zones are in the downtown area and along the shore. Downtown in Tulum and Calle Yaxchilan are delicious as well as inexpensive, with generous portions and friendly service. Check out the Argentinian steakhouses that dot the coast for a great steak, real Szechuan chicken, and of course Pre-Hispanic dishes that give you a real taste of what Cancun dining has to offer. Listen to live mariachi bands play, watch cool street shows on the boardwalk while you eat.

Real Authentic Mexican Food

In Cancun, you can sample Mexican food that makes American style Mexican food pale in comparison. Here you will eat fresh tapas, real honey soaked sopapillas, and meats like goat and lamb that you might not have been able to try out in the US. Why stop at American style Mexican restaurants along the beach when you can have real Mexican? The Yucatan Peninsula has a special brand of Mexican food, so be sure to ask around for Yucatan food instead of central Mexican or eastern Mexican just so you can try it out.

Savory Seafood

Since Cancun is along the coast, you’ll find that most of the meat dishes here will be seafood, but there are also Argentinian steak houses that serve up some wicked surf and turf that have to be tasted to be believed! From jumbo shrimp cocktails to buttery lobster tails, you’ll find there’s so much to try out! Prices will soar around the downtown area, but you’ll find the beachside bars and grills serve up dishes that can compete with the expensive places at competitive prices with generous portions to boot.

Resort Dining

The various all-inclusive resorts here in Cancun will give you meals as part of your package, so be sure you take full advantage of it! Here you’ll be able to get sumptuous desserts, gourmet al a carte dining experiences and unlimited beverages that will keep your appetite going through a five course meal. Dining in Cancun is a feast for the senses, and you’ll find that they serve everything from a carnivore’s delight to a vegetarian feast that will hit the sweet spot for any culinary desire. Here you can have your cake and eat it too, with prices like these you might want to try two!

Nightlife

Nightlife in Cancun

Nightlife in Cancun is an amazing experience, with bright lights and beautiful signs that light up the night. Here you can catch a show, go dancing in one of the many salsa, merengue and mainstream clubs, and enjoy an experience with deep rich Spanish and Latin influences that will always keep you guessing and give you a plethora of places to explore. From the nightclubs where you can dance until dawn at places like The City, Coco Bango, and see acrobats and cancan dancers. If you’re not in the mood for dancing, you can go to bars like Senor Frogs where you can sit at the bar on a tire swing. There are many lounge bars like Nectar and the Thai Lounge where you can lay on beautiful seating in a chilled out ambience and enjoy DJs spinning all kinds of relaxing lounge music.

One of the big things about Cancun Nightlife though is that you can enjoy great live music all over the city with music like salsa and merengue, jazz and modern rock. Why limit yourself to just going out to nightclubs, when you can go out and see live music, colorful fun entertainment and enjoy an ambience that will only make your destination wedding in Cancun truly special!

Live Entertainment

Dady Rock and the Bulldog Cafe will give you great live music to dance the night away to! The Azucar Bar (azucar means sugar in Spanish) is a great Mexican Caribbean bar where you can listen to live rock music in all flavors (alternative, hard, grunge, etc.) and party down until the sun comes up. Los Cuarto Elementos (the four elements) is a great bohemian lounge bar with great Trove and Spanish rock are played through the night. Here locals and visitors alike mingle so you won’t have to deal with the same faces every night. Another part of the live entertainment in Cancun that you have to see are the acrobats and the cancan dancers that do nightly shows throughout the downtown area. If you’ve never seen a show like this, it usually comes with a dinner and drinks so you can catch a show and a meal and head on out to the next clubbing destination when the show is over! Have the best of both worlds when you come to Cancun for your destination wedding.

See the Fun Side of Cancun

If you’re looking for more fun than just dancing all night long, you should go out and see the bar and lounge scene in Cancun. When you’re in town for your destination wedding, you might want to wind down after a long day of swimming around in the water! You can visit Senor Frogs, where you can swing on real tire swings at the bar instead of spinning around on bar stools. Nectar and Thai Lounge have a great lounging ambience where you can sprawl out on comfortable seating and enjoy colorful drinks and chilled out tunes. You don’t have to have a high powered evening in Cancun to have a good time!
