Cancun is divided into two parts: the Hotel Zone island with the city’s resorts and beaches, and Downtown, where the locals live. While most tourists spend most of their vacation in the Hotel Zone, Downtown Cancun is one of the most eccentric areas of the city – captivating all of its visitors through displays of local culture and delicious foods. Downtown Cancun (referred to as Ciudad Cancun) is for adventuresome tourists and demonstrates the festive culture in a social and exciting way.

Downtown Cancun is filled with great restaurants, lots of shopping and a fun community vibe, and is only a five-minute taxi ride from the entrance of the Hotel Zone.
