Think that you’ve seen it all in Cancun? Think again. Though this glittering jewel of a resort town does seem to have everything a tourist could want – white sand beaches, palm trees, night clubs, and underwater activities, there’s a whole lot more going on just outside Cancun’s borders. If you’ve never been beyond the reaches of Cancun, now’s a good time to start.

Cancun is the hub and Cozumel is the glittering pearl lying next to it in the sea. Just opposite Playa del Carmen in the Yucatan Channel, this little island is famous for its teal blue waters, its seaside resorts, and its great scuba-diving and snorkeling. Perfect for a lover’s retreat or simply golfing with the friends, Cozumel attracts thousands every year.

Nightlife in Cancun? To be sure. There’s so much nightlife in Cancun, really, you’d better liken it to a Vegas of Mexico to get a good relation. From bars to nightclubs to lounges to music venues, you name it, Cancun’s got it. Hit the beach during the day and then the bars at night – that’s what Cancun is all about. If you want a more mellow experience, head to neighboring Playa del Carmen, but for those of you who want to party, it’s Cancun or bust.

Semana Santa, in the Catholic religion, consists of the last week of Lent, otherwise known as the last week before Easter or Holy Week. Palm Sunday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday are the culminating holidays of the week, and in Cancun, the event takes on special significance. Being a catholic town, Semana Santa is a seriously observed holiday and all of the churches will be celebrating in their own fashion. That sounds serious, doesn’t it? It isn’t. Semana Santa is Cancun’s second busiest time of the year, next to New Years Eve. Everything is open and so be on the lookout for deals where you can find them.

Often referred to as the little brother to bigger Cancun, Playa Del Carmen has its origins as a sleepy little fishing village that started small. Still smaller than the comparable Cancun, and still full of local character, today Playa del Carmen is a vacation hot spot for those who are looking for the white-sand beaches and blue waters of Cancun without all the high-rises and people. And though Playa del Carmen still retains the character of the sleepy village of its roots, there are still plenty of exciting things to do here.

The resort city of Cancun, on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, is one of the most visited beach resort destinations in Mexico and serves as the gateway to the Riviera Maya. High-season in Cancun runs from mid-December through March, and tourist prices are at their peak from mid-December to mid-January. First time visitors looking to avoid the crowds and save a bit of money should consider traveling to Cancun during the low or shoulder seasons, just before and after high season.

With its laid-back Caribbean vibe, Isla Holbox (pronounced hol-bosh) is a tranquil island escape located just off the coast of Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula, northeast of Cancun where the Gulf of Mexico meets the Caribbean Sea. Isla Holbox receives far fewer visitors than Isla Mujeres and Cozumel, and the island’s white sand streets see little traffic. Like other small Caribbean islands, golf carts are the preferred mode of transportation on Isla Holbox and much of the island can be easily explored on foot.
