Don't make the mistake of thinking of Cancun, Mexico as a typical tourist destination. While the region was chosen by the government of Mexico to be developed into a tourism hub, it is far from the typical, synthetic hotspot. Instead, Cozumel stands as a remarkably appealing coastal city at the northeast corner of the Yucatan Peninsula. It is also the gateway to the coveted Mayan Riviera area.
Offering 14 miles of pristine beaches, and containing many Mayan historical sites, Cancun is surrounded by some of the finest waters for diving and snorkeling. It has a well-designed hotel zone that features many truly fine restaurants and shopping areas, and its downtown area is actually a very pleasant place where most of the local residents live, shop, and dine out.
This makes Cancun an authentic place to experience the region, and with some of the best weather, and a large international airport less than ten miles from the downtown area, it is a perfect place to begin a luxurious holiday getaway.
Though many travelers think of Cancun as a waterfront city with great tourism services, it is also a place with many high end accommodations, including opulent, private villas. Isle Blue offers clients an excellent menu of villas along with personalized services that ensure all of your needs are met. Whether that includes shuttle services from the large and bustling airport to concierge services that obtain bookings at the best restaurants, attractions or activities imaginable, our goal is ensure your stay in Cancun and the Maya Riviera is all you hope it to be.
Naturally, one of the most popular activities involves the beach. The area offers excellent locations for diving and snorkeling, but is also safe and popular for such things as kite surfing and swimming. Visitors may not realize that the beaches can be perfect spots for a bit of shopping as well, since many local artisans sell their wares strictly along the Cancun waterfront locations.
Cancun is also a sport with an authentic city center, and the Parque de las Palapas is a wonderful place to meet locals, buy artisan goods, and sample some local delicacies. The city also has many markets where visitors can purchase fresh ingredients to prepare in their villa, or for their chef to prepare to perfection.
Museums and sports enthusiasts have options as well. The Museo Maya de Cancun is a national institution and the MUSA Museo Subacuatico de Arte is an underwater sensation. The city also has its own football team and downtown stadium.
Many head to Cancun for access to some of the eco nature parks so famous throughout the region, and some of the finest tours to these destinations depart from the city. Cancun's hotel zone is noted for its top of the line shopping as well, with malls and markets and even a jewelry factory. Of course, spa and yoga retreats are becoming one of the primary reasons that travelers book a stay in Cancun. If you are interested in the many different practices and therapies available, we can help you discover the right spa or retreat for your needs.
With its city streets, charming downtown, resort areas and waterfront, the city has an abundance of dining options. Some of the best are a blend of setting and cuisine. The White Box is famous for its seafood options, and Du Mexique consistently ranks as a traveler's favorite. Peter's Restaurant specializes in fusion cuisine, and those who love to eat breakfast "out" will appreciate Restaurante Benazuza.
The list of restaurants worth the visit is extensive, and our concierge services can help you make all of the right choices and bookings.
Easy to reach by air, fun and untraditional, and offering the best balance of leisure and activities, the city of Cancun will soon rank as one of your favorite luxury destinations.
