Purpose-built for pleasure
Cancun is an ultra-modern resort city, perched on top of the Yucatan peninsula, looking out over the Caribbean Sea. With over 250 days of sunshine every year, and miles of pristine beaches, it’s one of Mexico’s best places to build up a tan.

Must eat at:
If seafood’s your thing (and in Cancun it should be high on your wish list), head for La Habichuela on Margaritas for truly delicious shrimp and lobster (and a rather fine aquarium).
Must be there for:
Carnaval, annually in February or March, varies with the calendar, but promises riotous celebrations, not to mention beautiful weather.
· Cancun’s peak season runs from December to April – expect higher prices (and marginally better weather).
· Make sure to book a coach trip to the jaw-dropping Mayan ruins at Tulum, and, especially at Chichen Itza for a glimpse of life in an ancient civilisation.
