Cancun is truly a one-stop, all-inclusive destination with dozens of world-class resorts and pristine beaches for miles as far as the eye can see. Just 20 minutes from the airport, Cancun offers unmatched convenience and hospitality for a luxurious weekend getaway or romantic Caribbean vacation.

Cancun vs. Riviera Maya

What sets Cancun apart from the rest of the Riviera Maya is its lively atmosphere due to its centralized location. With hotels and resorts on one side of the street and restaurants and bars on the other-- as well as the beach only steps away-- it's no wonder why this vibrant city is a tourist favorite. Whether you're looking for a laid-back day or an exciting evening out on the town, it's all easily accessible in Cancun without needing to plan far in advance.

Another significant difference between the two destinations lies in the nearby or encompassing natural greenery. In Cancun, you'll find small, manicured vegetation at the resorts just off the main road. South in the Riviera Maya, most resorts are tucked away from the main highway and typically surrounded by tropical flora.

Where to Go Around Cancun

If you feel like getting out of the city, you won't find a shortage of beaches to explore in the surrounding area of the Riviera Maya. Just a ferry ride away, no trip to Cancun would be complete without a visit to the world-famous beach Playa Norte in Isla Mujeres. The electric-blue waters and white powder sand are indeed a sight to see and experience during sunset. For a unique getaway into nature, Tulum offers secluded beaches and numerous cenotes, or natural sinkholes where you can take a dip in the water and even explore caves.

No matter which beach you go to, either in or outside of Cancun, you can't go wrong. From snorkeling or surfing in the peninsula's calm and clear turquoise sea to tanning in the vast, fine-sand shores, there's nothing not to love about Cancun!

Prior to meeting Mary Beth, we hadn’t really thought of using anyone to book our honeymoon. However, after we met Mary Beth with Your Vacation Plan & had discussions on what she would handle (which was everything!), it was the best decision we made. Mary Beth took the time to research what we were looking for & gave us options. Not only did she supply the pros to the resorts, but also the cons from personal experience which honestly, is the best way for us to decide. We love anyone who can relate and be personable!! She truly cared about what place would work best for us & was so transparent! Planning a wedding is stressful enough & working with Mary Beth was such a breeze.  I would 100% recommend booking through Your Vacation Plan. We look forward to booking other trips through them! You will not be disappointed with the service. Thank you, Mary Beth for taking this stress off our shoulders & recommending such a beautiful place for our honeymoon

"Mary Beth was phenomenal to work with! Thank you SO MUCH for making our honeymoon the most amazing experience and vacation we have been on!! With things changing almost daily with covid, she was SO helpful and reassuring through the whole process. We could not thank her enough for creating such an incredible experience for us. From start to finish she kept us up to date, suggested alternatives when our original plans fell through, and did it all with such a kind and calming presence. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. We are SO thankful and will 100% use Your Vacation Plan in the future for our travels. Thank you!!

Mary Beth is wonderful! She always has your best interest in mind while helping you plan your vacation. When unexpected cancellations came up for our trip she had us rebooked while she was at an appointment! She also gave us great ideas for our excursions. She is the only travel agent we will use!

 Because of the COVID-19, we wound up changing our honeymoon destination, and we could not have been happier! I honestly believe that our honeymoon was even better than what we had originally had planned in Jamaica, and that’s all thanks to Mary Beth’s hard work! We had the trip of a lifetime, and will absolutely be going through Mary Beth next time!  She is incredibly detail oriented and diligent, so every time we considered changing plans, she was right there providing her expertise and insight into our options. She worked many late nights, kept in consistent contact about everything that was going on in the country we were going to be visiting. I 100% recommend you use Mary Beth for any and all of your travel needs! Her hard work and passion will make your planning experience more enjoyable and your traveling experience to die for!
