While staying in Cancun, make a trip to Chichén Itzá; a part of your plans. Although it is roughly two hours away, this Mayan ruin is a sight that should not be missed. The El Rey Ruins are closer to vacation rentals in Cancun than Chichén Itzá. These ruins are located in the Zona Hotelera, or the hotel zone, and are a place of interest not only for the ruins, but also for the abundance of iguanas that have taken over the site. Beaches are a great way to spend one's time while staying at one of the Cancun vacation rentals. Playa Tortugas is one of the most popular for its clean sand and calm waters. In addition, families can save by visiting Playa Tortugas as there is no entrance fee. The Interactive Aquarium is a great place for kids who can get up close to the animals. Just a short distance from Cancun is yet another tranquil attraction called Isla Mujeres. This quiet island is known for its sea turtles and has a popular turtle farm. In addition to the turtle farm there is a beach on the island called Playa del Norte.

Unlike most towns that become tourist destinations, Cancun Mexico was dreamt up in the late 1960s and constructed in the early 1970s as an ambitious project of former Mexican president Echeverria to compete with Acapulco. The Integrally Planned Center turned an area known for forest and mosquitos into a hot tourist attraction in a couple of decades. English is widely spoken there, and it has many of the same amenities the U.S. has to offer. Cancun vacation rentals are economical and many boast breathtaking views of the crystal-clear turquoise waters.
Things to Do
Cancun is an ideal home base for exploring the Yucatán and its gorgeous ruins at the coastal Tulum and inland Chichen-Itza. Cancun's Playa Tortuga is one of the most beautiful beaches in the area with clean sand and gentle surf. Its relaxed atmosphere and the nearby open-air restaurants provide an enjoyable beach day. Visitors also enjoy golf and the Interactive Aquarium where they aim to educate visitors on local marine life. The aquarium makes for a good rainy day activity. Admission is $14, however, unlike many of the area attractions, the aquarium does not take U.S. dollars, so you'll need pesos or a credit card to pay for tickets.
The best way to get around Cancun, or to any of the local ruins, is on bus. The Cancun bus stops often along Boulevard Kukulcan and at other spots around the downtown area. One-way fares are around 9 pesos. Taxis are best for transportation to your Cancun vacation rental to and from the airport. While some visitors opt to rent cars, the narrow roads and erratic traffic patterns make driving intimidating.
Cancun summers are blisteringly hot even with the breeze off the water. Temps are in the low 90s but the sun is intense. December through April is peak time and offers the best weather. Mid-March through mid-April ushers in spring breakers. The beaches and bars overflow. The fall means good deals but also a chance for strong storms including hurricanes.
When planning a trip to the island and before choosing from the selection of Cancun rentals on VacationHomeRentals.com, it is important to pick the right time to travel. One of the best ways to do that is consider the weather. From November to April it goes through a dry season. The temperatures are coolest during this time due to breezes from the north trade winds, with the coolest temperatures occurring in the months of January and February. During these two month the temperature averages around 73.4 degrees Fahrenheit during the day and at night 68 degrees Fahrenheit. From May through October, people staying at Cancun condo rentals experience the island's wet season, which also happens to be its hottest period as well. Because June to October is hurricane season visiting and staying at one of the Cancun vacation rentals is not advised. Because of the mild weather and drier temperatures during the dry season, it is considered the best time to travel to the island.
Cancun is known for its nightlife. Many of the top night clubs are in hotels in the Hotel Zone. There are sports bars, discos, and dance clubs. Cruises to nowhere are also popular and offer a night of dancing and food. There are also casino cruises available.
A Cancun vacation rental allows you to accommodate larger groups with multiple bedrooms for an economical stay. This affluent planned community in Mexico sits among some of the most beautiful scenery in the area. It's no wonder it's been rated one of the best beaches in Mexico by U.S. News & World Report.
