Resort at a Glance: Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas
To the west of the four-star Omni Cancun Hotel & Villas, there’s a freshwater lagoon; to the east, the Caribbean Sea. Many of the activities at this all-inclusive resort are centered on the clear water: you can borrow snorkeling gear, play beach volleyball on the shores, or spread your towel on the sand underneath a thatched palapa.
- Private balconies in guest rooms overlook the ocean or lagoon; they’re furnished with cushioned benches and throw pillows.
- Take a dip in the hibiscus-shaped hot tub, which seats 40 and has a swim-up bar.
- Lounge by the pool or in the pool on one of the sunken lounge chairs.
- Sample international cuisine from sushi to Mexican barbecue at the eight onsite restaurants.
- Feel rejuvenated after a green-tea body scrub at the spa (additional fees apply).
Cancún: Cool White Sands and Mayan Relics
Located on a barrier island shaped like the number seven, Cancún’s Hotel Zone juts into the Caribbean Sea at the northeast tip of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula. With the sea on one side and freshwater lagoons on the other, it’s a popular spot for sailing and snorkeling. Although the beaches and barrier reefs are a major draw, the geography is equally enticing further inland, where you can dive into an underground river or take a speedboat through a mangrove jungle.
Cancún pulls in millions of visitors each year, so escaping the crowds and the party atmosphere isn’t always easy, but a visit to Playa Delfines offers a chance for sunbathing in relative seclusion. Resorts have yet to encroach upon this stretch of sand, and it’s especially popular with surfers.
The stone columns of El Rey Ruins, an ancient Mayan site dating back to the second and third centuries BCE, lie within the city’s Hotel Zone. Believed to be a royal burial ground, the archaeological site is also home to wild iguanas that lounge in the sun and read Tom Clancy novels. For a Mayan-themed day trip, take a 1.5-hour drive from Cancún down the coast to Tulum, a pre-Columbian walled city located on a bluff overlooking the sea—one of the Yucatán Peninsula’s most visited Mayan ruins. The Mayan city of Chichén Itzá, chosen as one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007, is only a 2.5-hour drive from Cancún.
