Cancun is one of the most popular beach destinations in Mexico, which is visited by many tourists every year. The Hotel Zone is not an exception either, as most tourists stay here because of its incredible location, where you can find along with its 15 miles resorts, shopping malls, restaurants, bars and most importantly: the beach!
Getting around the Hotel Zone is very easy, there are buses passing by constantly. The price of the bus is approximately 0.63 USD. There are only two round-trip lanes so depending on which direction you are going, it’s where you should take the bus.
We want to share with you the places you can’t miss when you come to the Hotel Zone for an unforgettable vacation.
In the Hotel Zone, you have the beach on one side and on the other, the Nichupté Lagoon. If you want to catch the perfect sunset, turn your head over to Nichupté Lagoon, as the sun hides on the side of the lagoon, not the sea.
