Holidays to Cancun will leave you with vivid holiday memories that you’ll find hard to put into words to all your friends back home. Try describing the feeling of the tropical sun on your skin, the sea-wave-like sound of maracas and the refreshingly good taste of a chilled Corona beer enjoyed under your sombrero hat - all wrapped up in a lush rainbow of colours. Experience this sense-fest for yourself and you'll grasp what Cancun holidays are all about! Jutting out into the deep blue of the Caribbean Sea, Cancun’s popular centre is made up of a two-sided stretch of coast, covered with elegantly designed hotels. Daytime is all about the beach life here – whether you choose to take a boat trip, hop on a jet-ski or enjoy a good read on your lounger. At night however, it’s all about the beats, the beer and the conga lines! Coco Bongos’ larger-than-life entertainment venue is a must-see, at least once during your Cancun holidays. Featuring everything from flying acrobats to live Salsa bands complete with soap bubbles and confetti streamers, it’s world-renowned as the place to party in Cancun. If the quieter holiday-lifestyle is more your thing, the luxurious hotel resorts along the Riviera Maya will offer you a ‘one-stop-shop’ holiday experience. Each featuring its own exclusive stretch of bright white sand, there’s no need for you to leave your private piece of heaven. Playacar and Playa Paraiso are two destinations to check out if you want to experience some of the finest resorts that holidays to Cancun have to offer.

For a more culturally mystical ambience during your Cancun holidays, grab your camera and visit the sites of the ancient Mayan civilisations. Chichen Itza, one of the New Seven Wonders of the World, is easily accessible in all its ancient glory from Cancun, and even more so from the exclusive resort of Playacar along the Riviera Maya. More Mayan magic can be sought on the Yucatan peninsula, including the ancient city of Coba, which features the towering Nohoch Mul pyramid. Brim-full of natural wonders, Cancun is also home to the world-famous Mexican ‘cenotes’ – eerie flooded caverns where you can swim and snorkel in turquoise waters underneath stony, stalactite-covered cavern roofs. An easy, family-friendly way to experience these mysterious natural phenomena is with a day trip to the Xcaret eco-archaeological park. As well as trying ‘snuba’ (a cross between snorkelling and scuba diving), visitors to this lush park can also bathe in lagoons hidden in the thick jungle flora and spy on an array of wildlife including monkeys, jaguars and baby bats! Food is a big part of life in Mexico, and package holidays to Cancun are no exception; from red peppers and chillies wrapped in delicious burritos, to the most fragrant and fresh seafood delicacies.

Adventurers, sun-loving party animals and foodies who long to add a bit of spice to their summer holiday, great value Cancun holidays from Thomas Cook await you! You’ll find everything from convenient, all-inclusive package holidays, to fun-packed family holidays that are guaranteed to keep both adults and children entertained.
