Cancun is incredibly safe, day or night. I travel there and the surrounding region a lot, many times solo, and have never had any problems with crime in over a decade's time. (I co-author a guidebook to the region.) The only caveat: though I'm not aware of any cartel activity it's best to stay away from drugs. Buying/selling/using them not only puts you in a potentially dangerous situation but if you're caught by authorities, you're pretty much guaranteed a stay in jail with very little the U.S.,or any foreign, government can do to help you.

There is a hotel for every budget in Cancun. The good hotels are modern and world class and the budget hotels are exactly that. What attracts the masses are the white sand beaches that go on for days. The crystal clear waters and more activities than you could do in a lifetime.

I'm not raving about Cancun for its wet T-shirt contests and its open-bar deals. Or its humongo resorts. But it gets five stars for truly amazing beaches, for hidden-away taco stands, and for really lovely Mexican nightlife downtown. The trick is to hop on the bus and explore, break out of your hotel, and definitely go to a public beach on a Sunday, when all the locals are out and about.

Packed with tourists almost year-round, Cancun has earned its reputation as America's Caribbean playground. The stereotypical all-inclusive resorts that you're imagining are concentrated on the city's best real estate, along a narrow strip of land with open ocean on one side and a lagoon on the other. The beaches are fantastic, and you're never far from a bar or restaurant. Further inland, the city of Cancun feels more like Mexico - with good taquerias, cheap artisan markets, and much, much cheaper accommodations. If you stay in the city to save some money, cheap public buses run to and from the beaches all day. (Bring water bottles with you, because it'll cost a ton once you're at the beach.)

The best vacation I have had so far. Perfect for relaxing and soaking up some sun. Several tours are available, my favorite was Chichen Itza and the Mayan ruins. The resort staff were very nice and helpful. They did a great job of creating a friendly and welcoming environment. The food was great too. Everything was freshly cooked right in front of you and there wasn't a single thing that didn't taste great.

You want fun in the sun and lots of drinking. Well Cancun is one of those places. We did an all inclusive, and so we went crazy drinking and didn't have to worry we would have to pay on top.
Mexico is probably one of the only places where beer is cheaper than water. I remember going Downtown and beer was 2 for a $1. Now why wouldn't you drink at that price.
