Cancun Neighborhood Guide

Cancun Neighborhood Guide

With white-sand beaches, all-inclusive resorts, and nightlife, Cancun is a top vacation destination in Mexico. Set on the vibrant Caribbean coast, visitors can enjoy swimming, snorkeling, sunbathing, and partying along the shore. Or, head into the city center to experience the area’s rich culture, food, and history. To make the most of your trip, see our Cancun neighborhood guide.

The Hotel Zone

Stretching the length of the peninsula that juts off the coast of Cancun, the Hotel Zone is the resort hub of the region. Isolated from the rest of the city and designed exclusively for tourists, the strip is lined with all-inclusive resorts, private beach clubs, upscale restaurants, and nightclubs. 

The Party Zone

Home to Cancun’s top nightclubs—such as the Vegas-style Coco Bongo and The City, the largest nightclub in Latin America—the Party Zone is alive 24/7 and usually packed with raucous crowds and loud music. Easily accessible by those staying in the Hotel Zone, the Party Zone also includes souvenir shops, shopping malls, and upscale bars. 

Downtown (El Centro)

Those looking for a more authentic Mexico experience should head to downtown Cancun. There, you can find flea-market-style shopping centers, street food stands, traditional Mexican restaurants, cooking classes, and bars frequented by locals. 

Puerto Juarez

Set just north of the city along a quieter portion of the coastline, Puerto Juarez provides a tranquil alternative to Cancun’s bustling downtown and popping Hotel and Party zones. You can find laidback beaches, dinner cruises, and seafood restaurants with stunning views. Plus, the neighborhood is the hub for ferries and sailing excursions departing for Isla Mujeres. 

Isla Mujeres

A short ferry ride off the coast of Cancun, Isla Mujeres is an island paradise that makes for a peaceful vacation base or a great day trip from Cancun. You can take a catamaran tour to the island, snorkel in the surrounding pristine waters, or explore the narrow streets on a golf cart.
