Cancun and the Treasures of the Caribbean

Cancun is one of the world’s most popular tourist destinations because of its grand diversity and ability to please everyone with its great fashion and shopping, ecological tours for the more adventurous, fabulous bars and restaurants, world class golf and so much more. Add to this the surrounding treasures of this outstanding resort, such as the nearby islands of Holbox, Isla Mujeres, Isla Contoy and the seaside fishing village of Puerto Morelos each with its own charm and beauty and unique personality. Together they are known as Cancun and the Treasures of the Caribbean.

Isla Holbox
Holbox is an island located northwest of Cancun. It is perfect for those seeking the calm tranquility of a fisherman’s village in a paradise setting. Here you can truly enjoy the simple things in life and take time to bond with Nature. It is about 2 hours drive from Cancun or you can go by boat from Punta Sam.

Holbox Island is a sanctuary to thousands of wild species such as dolphins, pelicans, turtles, flamingos and other exotic birds. Holbox is surrounded by sandy unspoiled beaches, crystal clear waters ideal for windsurfing, kite surfing, snorkeling, sailing or kayaking and one of a kind experiences like swimming with the famous Domino whale shark or crocodile watching.

Isla Contoy
The island of Contoy is home to hundreds of different species of fish and types of birds. Because the island is free of predators, its environment provides the ideal setting for the reproduction of these beautiful birds. Contoy is also home to Boca Iglesia, a community of only 26 inhabitants, only accessible via seaport.

Isla Mujeres
Isla Mujeres means Island of Women and is a small and beautiful island located just a short 20 minute ferry ride away from Cancun. It is only 500 meters wide and 7.5km long and is a Caribbean paradise frequented by the more laid back traveller and diving enthusiasts. You also get many vacationers coming over from Cancun to spend a day or two on the island.

Isla Mujeres’ romantic setting with its turquoise blue waters, white sand and spectacular sunsets makes it a favourite amongst honeymooners and couples looking for a memorable wedding in the Mexican Caribbean.

Puerto Morelos
Puerto Morelos is a friendly, laid-back fishing village located only 35km from Cancun. The bohemian, tranquil atmosphere attracts people from all over the world, many of whom have chosen to make it their home. You will be seduced but its natural beauty and charm which transport you a million miles away from the glitz and glamour of Cancun.

There is no shortage of things to do in Puerto Morelos. The coast is part of the National Marine Park making it ideal for scuba diving and snorkeling. If fishing is your passion then this is the place for you – you will be sure of a prize catch! There are plenty of ecotourism excursions where you can explore the jungle and the cenotes on the famous Cenote Trail.
