Honeymoon Profile Destination: Chill Out In Cancun

Cancun is a tourist Mecca. Specifically built to give Mexico a first-class tourist destination attracting visitors from far and wide, everything about this Caribbean resort is geared towards offering a larger than life luxurious experience. From the five-star hotels along the Zona Hotelera, to the pristine white sands and turquoise sea, this is paradise alright!

It should be no surprise that millions of people are drawn to Cancun’s surrounding area too. The attractions don’t center on beach life alone, there’s something for every taste with adventure and history in abundance.

Boasting unique geography, amazing natural sites, unparalleled Maya ruins and a vibrant culture. The wider Yucatan peninsula is simply perfect no matter what kind of holiday you want. And it’s only a 13 hour flight away from Dublin!

The region comes into its own as a picture-perfect honeymoon destination. So, if you are planning on jetting off after your wedding for a mixture of sun and exploration, Cancun will be a real treat.

The Beaches

Quite literally paradise. With miles of pristine white sand stretching out on to azure blue waters, every day is like stepping on to the pages of a tourist brochure. The beaches aren’t just beautiful, they are well-appointed too. Thanks to the proximity of Cancun’s main beach to the myriad of world-class hotels and resorts, you are never far away from your next pina colada. There are also plenty of adult-only beaches to enjoy your romantic getaway in peace. Pure bliss!

The Excursions

If you fancy exploring a little beyond Cancun, then the rest of the Riviera Maya has some incredible treasures awaiting your discovery. There are plenty of excursions available to escort you to a host of attractions. Fancy seeing the incredible Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza? Or how about a boat ride to the wildlife preserve of Isla Contoy or a trip to the mind-blowing Cenotes to take a dip in the refreshing natural pools? Time to get busy planning your must-see bucket list!

The Watersports

If you’re a renowned water baby, there’s no end to the fun available in Cancun. Thanks to the clear Caribbean waters, scuba diving and snorkeling are both widely available. Numerous diving tours allow you to get up close and personal to the region’s amazing wildlife. If you’ve ever wanted to swim with whale sharks, now’s your chance! If you’re not in the mood for getting wet, then hop on a catamaran cruise to enjoy the breath-taking scenery along the coast. Or if you’d prefer something a little less sedate, why not try your hand at surfing!?

Few destinations manage to combine such a wealth of activities with peaceful tropical beauty as well as Cancun. Which is why it should be the top of your list for your honeymoon!
