Cancun feels extremely safe. On a recent trip to Cancun, we walked along the main avenue and took a cab to Playa del Carmen and never felt unsafe. Other travelers we spoke with reiterated how they felt completely safe, particularly while at secure resorts. There are marvelous Villas in Cancun to stay.
Cancun has some of the most breathtaking beaches around — large expanses of powdery white sand abutting turquoise waters. After bathing in the hot Mexican sun for a bit, visitors will likely want to cool off with a dip in the ocean, but caution is needed due to the strong undertow and rough surf. Mexico has a flag system to alert swimmers on water conditions: green signifies the water is safe for swimming; yellow means use caution; red conveys dangerous conditions; and black means do not swim.
Things to do in Cancun
Visit the underwater sculpture gallery provides a unique underwater experience off of Isla Mujeres’ Manchones and Cancún’s Punta Nizuc.
Their snorkel, diving, and glass bottom boat tours can take you to check out the sculptures, which seem to be the best — and maybe only — way to see them.
It is possible to see hundreds of whale sharks from the boat during peak times, though only 2 people, plus the guide, can be in the water with them at a time. We also got lucky and saw manta rays feeding right alongside them!
Important note: Do not drink tap water!. Tap water is not safe to drink in Cancun, as it’s rampant with parasites and potentially deadly bacteria, and non-locals are extremely susceptible to getting sick from non-filtered water. To avoid getting sick on vacation, stick to filtered bottled water-free at most resorts — and decline drinks with ice if you’re unable to confirm whether it has been filtered. Tip: Ice that’s in the shape of a cylinder with a hole in the center is purchased from a purified ice factory. For extra precaution, use bottled water for brushing teeth. Also be wary of raw food such as salads and fruit, as these are more likely to contain bacteria.
Cancun suites is for every budget, exclusive resort in a privileged location on the best beach in Cancun, so named by the Discovery Channel. A safe, quiet and low beach where the whole family can enjoy it to the fullest.

As well we advise you to visits the diverse and beautiful Cenotes around the area and of course go to the Maya Ruins. The most famous is Chichén Itzá, but the ruins of Tulum are also worth exploring. I would plan on getting there very early, or later in the day to avoid the crowds and peak heat.
My favorite thing on this list, Isla Holbox, is magical. It’s about a 2 hour drive from Cancún, plus a 15 minute ferry ride. You can catch some local transport, a taxi, a shared ride van, or you can drive your own car and park at one of the many lots charging anywhere between 50 and 100 pesos per day. Pro tip: the lot at the end of the road and to the left is a bit cheaper than the rest!
Visit the salt pools. Las Coloradas is a series of salt pools that, like many in the world, is dyed pink from the organisms in the water. As well a must-have is de Biosphere Reserve. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and its name translates to ‘gates of heaven’. Expect to see loads of birds, insects, fish, beautiful corals, and potentially even jaguars!
