Where is Cancun?

You may have heard of Cancun, but do you the exact location of this exotic tropical paradise? This Caribbean resort is located on the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula in southeastern Mexico in the state of Quintana Roo. The area is very popular with young and old alike, thanks to its gorgeous long sandy white beaches, warm weather, exciting nightlife and wide range of unique attractions that include spectacular Mayan ruins. Back in the 1980s, Cancun was a small, relatively undiscovered destination, but the resort has since become one of the world's most visited!

Many airlines offer direct flights to this remarkable destination so you should have no problem arranging transportation. Cancun is also located within easy driving distance to many other charming colonial cities and popular tourist attractions. You can take a short boat ride to the island of Cozumel, rent a car to explore the large theme park of Xcaret, arrange a tour of the ancient ruins of Chitzen Itza or hop on an air-conditioned bus to visit neighboring Belize.
