Cancún is a tourist destination in Mexico, on the Yucatan Peninsula bordering the Caribbean Sea. The city is known for its beaches, resorts, and nightlife and is divided into two areas – the traditional city center (El Centro) and the Zona Hotelera which is a long beach strip with large hotels, nightclubs, shops, and restaurants.
The best time to visit the city is during the spring season, and you can explore the sightseeing either free or at an affordable cost.
