There are countless reasons why Cancun is such a hot spot right now. Firstly, it boasts immaculate beaches with crystal clear water and sugary white sand.

The sun is always out, and the weather is warm, so it makes for the perfect place to escape the rainy and cold weather in other parts of the U.S.
