Cancun, is with no doubt, one of the most important touristic destinations in Mexico. When it comes to beach resorts, I believe Cancun can compete up there with the best.
So many people around the world have told me things like: it is too American!! Not the real Mexico!!, Too expensive!.
Well, well, It is true that Cancun can have that look of an all-included theme park,but let's remember that Cancun is just the gateway to what is known as the Mayan Riviera.
You want night clubs, American style restaurants ad shops, huge hotel complexes? Then Cancun has it for you!.
Once you get away the Hotel Zone, there are tons of things to see and discover.
This was my third time in the Mayan Riviera, and this time I was travelling with my bestie, Vilou.
It was her first time in Mexico. She is from Paris, so definitely it was going to be a new experience for her.
I decided to stay away from the Hotel Zone and rented a room in Playa Blanca (around 5km from downtown) on Airbnb (totally recommend that website!).
Apart from having dinner at La Isla Mall (A beautiful outdoors shopping mall), we didn't do much in the HZ.
We are not much into clubbing, so we decided to have a good rest as we were visiting Tulum and Playa del Carmen the next day. Plus those nightclubs in Cancun are really expensive. Although I heard the price is totally worth it for those who love clubbing.
