We enjoyed Cancun but found that we were constantly pushed into buying something. From when we arrived, we were being pulled in every direction to get into a cab for ridiculous rates as well as tourist agents trying to sell their tours. Too much.

3/5 - Okay

Cancun will not be for everyone - careful research needed on quality of hotel, access to decent food and location. For us, it was fun for a couple of nights on a beach and to see the nightlife.

3/5 - Okay

The centre of the hotel zone is a good place if you want to party and club every night. However, the area does not offer as many restaurants or other options besides disco clubs and is even very small to walk around. Way too loud for us.

5/5 - Excellent
