Cancun. To most travelers this is one of the premier beachfront destinations on the planet. White sand stretching as far as the eyes can see. Brilliantly turquoise-blue waters. And while it’s true that there are more all-inclusive 5-star resorts in Cancun than there are in Las Vegas, there is so much more to Cancun than just the Hotel Zone and the all-you-can-eat buffets and pool-side bars. There is a living, breathing city beyond the carefully manicured and manufactured visage that is the tourist area, and it is here where the heart and soul of Cancun beats…and where the locals, as well as us, actually live.
Our guidebook is dedicated to showing you the real Cancun, the city that exists beyond the walls of the all-inclusive resorts. The parks and the plazas, the museums and the theaters, the cultural centers and the apartments, the condos and the off-the-beaten-path beaches, and the life that exists here on the ground. The Mexican way of life, with the Mexican cost of living, not the tourist cost.
These are all personal recommendations from Cristina and myself after more than six years of living here. If you want boots-on-the-ground information on the REAL Cancun, not the Hotel Zone, and how to get the most out of your money in the time you have here…no matter if it’s two weeks or two years…this is the ultimate guidebook you’ve been waiting for.
