Is it safe? That could be the first question you have in mind when you hear about Cancun. I can’t blame you. If you google about Cancun, you’d probably see news about killings and drug cartels. I was hesitant too, but I wanted to experience it myself. I heard about Cancun back in its glory days when telenovelas became a hit in the Philippines so imagine my excitement when the opportunity to finally visit the place came to light. Hahaha.

Located in the state of Quintana Roo, Cancun is a top tourist destination in Mexico. It is surrounded with the breathtaking Caribbean Sea, making it more attractive to tourists from around the world. 

I only stayed in Cancun for two nights so I did not have much time to explore the vibrant city. In fact, I only had time to eat and explore the Zona Hotelera area, a strip of luxury hotels near the white sand beach area. It’s an amazing place. I wish I had my drone with me. I could have captured better photos from above. 

I stayed at Ibis Hotel in the Downtown Cancun so I can move easily from one place to another. I did not know that buses in Cancun are plentiful and they cover a lot of areas within the city. If I knew, I would have stayed in one of the hotels in the Hotel Zone (Zona Hotelera). It could have been a lot better. No regrets though as Ibis is situated in front of a shopping mall and restaurants. A bus stop is also just few steps away so it’s very convenient to go around.

The bus ride from Hotel Ibis to the Hotel Zone is about 20 minutes. I was so excited to see the Cancun Beach because I heard a lot of stories about it. I wanted to see it up close and experience the Caribbean Sea in the Mexican side. It was around noon time when I went there so it was hot. I did not mind the sun because the view was breathtaking. Cancun beach is gorgeous. No wonder it’s considered as one of the best beach destinations in the world. [Book tours in Cancun]
