You may have thought Cancún was a destination for spring breakers rather than honeymooners, but forget everything you thought you knew about the area. Trust us when we say this destination has matured beautifully.
These days, the coastal city is celebrated for its luxury resorts and world-class restaurants, but don’t think that means Cancún has forgotten how to have a good time. Mega-clubs and giant margaritas are still easy to come by in the hotel zone, however they no longer define this sun-soaked piece of paradise. Travellers are now relishing the finer things Cancún has to offer: beautiful ocean views, fine tequila rarely found outside Mexico and beachfront accommodations second to none—all of which are in abundance at the JW Marriott Cancún
Resort & Spa. With a prime beachfront location, a top-rated Mayan-inspired spa, three pools and some of the best dining establishments in all of Cancún, this property has everything you could possibly need for the romantic vacation of a lifetime.
Adventurous travellers can use the property as a base from which to explore— Tulum, Chichen Itza, Isla Cozumel and much more—while those in search of total relaxation may prefer to kick back in one of the hotel’s Bali beds. Sprawled out in one of these luxurious thatched huts, steps from the ocean, you can treat yourself to mimosas or even a picnic lunch, all while enjoying Cancún’s jaw-dropping views.— Jen O’Brien
