As with much of the Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun was the site of a Mayan settlement long before the Spanish arrived. Indeed, and what I’m sure the majority of visitors are not aware of, is that the ruins of this ancient settlement are right slap in the middle of all the fun.

Fun, of course, is a subjective concept. For many, Cancun embodies the dream holiday destination with its superb beach, countless hotels, bars, restaurants, clubs, watersports parks and pretty much every other leisure activity one can imagine.

For others, well, Cancun is an airport.

Unless you live in North America, which has occasional flights to Merida, chances are that your holiday to the Yucatan Peninsula will start and finish in Cancun. What’s more, as flights from the UK and Europe all arrive in Cancun from the late afternoon onwards, you’ll almost certainly need to spend your first night somewhere in the vicinity of Cancun before heading off on your travels the following morning.
