When it comes to activities, by day, why not try snorkeling or paddleboarding straight from the beach. And by night, enjoy some Cuban Jazz as you relax with an expertly crafted cocktail. Alongside the elegant decor, peaceful setting, and non-stop luxury, you can also enjoy traditional Mayan treatments as you’re pampered at the Mexican Caribbean’s first ESPA-branded spa. 

With great offers currently available, a stay at NIZUC Resort and Spa is a possibility that’s hard to refuse.

Ritz-Carlton Cancun

This classy Cancun establishment is the first Ritz-Carlton resort outside the United States and over the last 30 years it has created quite a reputation for itself. Synonymous with luxury and the best of the best, the Ritz-Carlton brand conjures up images of classical style and timeless elegance – and the Cancun resort more than lives up to this vision. 

Esthetically, the Ritz-Carlton Cancun harks back to the good old days of opulent decor, with plush sofas, chandeliers, and meters of fabric elegantly dressing the windows. Despite this old-world glamor, the resort caters well to families, with a dedicated Club Lounge Level for family hangouts.
