But, what can you do or where can you go in that city? Here I give you some great reasons to spend New Years Eve in Cancun!
The Best Hotels in Cancun
If you are going to Cancun, you will have the chance to spend your vacation in some of the most exclusive hotels in Mexico where the service and the quality of the facilities are truly impressive. One of them is the Westin Resort and Spa, an all inclusive hotel located in on Blvd. Kukulcan km 20 very close to many fascinating attractions. Moreover, it boasts fully-equipped bedrooms beautifully decorated in a typical Mexican style. Another great hotel is the Grand Park Royal Cancun Caribe Hotel, a four-diamond award hotel with seven restaurants and four bars situated in Cancun’s Hotel Zone close to Chac Mool Beach and the Coral Negro Market (a famous flea market). Besides, it owns one of the largest beach fronts in Cancun and it is the only hotel that has a real Mayan ruin on the hotel premises.
Some of Cancun’s Most Beautiful Beaches
It is well-known that Cancun boasts some of the most incredible beaches in Mexico but if you dont have time to visit them all, here are two that you should need to check out: Pearl Beach and Marlin Beach. On the one hand, Pearl Beach is the closest beach to the city of Cancun, it is located on the Km 2.5 in front of the Barcelo Club Las Perlas which is between downtown Cancun and the Nichupte bridge. Moreover, it is a beautiful small stretch of sand near to luxurious private homes where there are almost no waves because it is protected from the open ocean by Women Island so it is a safe place for young swimmers. On the other hand, Marlin Beach is situated on the eastside area of Cancun at the Km 13 near the Carisma Courts and the Tucancun Hotel. Furthermore, Marlin Beach offers a glamourous, expansive space with an incredibly deep turquoise sea and great high waves which are popular among windsurfers and parasailers.
What to Eat during the New Year’s Party!
As regards to dining options, Cancun has a wide variety of restaurants in which you will be able to taste all kinds of food: Mexican, French, Italian, Japanese, Thai, Vegetarian and even fusion cuisine. One of the best restaurants is Maria Marie in the Royal Cancun Hotel. In this Mexican hacienda-style restaurant decorated with murals, you can taste the famous French-Mexican fusion cuisine. But, if you desire to try traditional regional dishes, you can stop by Casitas, an on-the-beach restaurant that serves delicious platter of shrimps, oysters, tuna tartar, king crab, and lobster trail and El Oasis, located in the downtown area which specializes in grilled seafood with rice, fish filled with coconut cream, ceviche and aguachiles (spicy lime shrimp).
All in all, Cancun is an amazing destination to spend an unforgettable New Years party; its hotels, beaches and tasty food (among other things you will have to discover for yourself) are more than enough reasons to purchase your flight ticket and make a hotel reservation right away!
