Hotels For All Budgets

In a destination like Cancun, travelers get a bit of everything. You can live it up in an all-inclusive for your spring vacation. Even if you don’t want an all-inclusive party vibe 24/7, there are some calmer guesthouses and boutique hotels if all you want to do is chill by the pool and catch up on your favorite podcasts. And if you’re on a budget, there are some affordable places to stay in Cancun, too.

Cancun has a Selina, a popular co-working space and hostel that typically hosts weekly or nightly events, so you’ll always find something to do here. 

There’s also Fiesta Party Hostel (sounds perfect for spring break, right?!) Or the more chill Hostel Natura, a stylish but affordable beachside accommodation. Wherever you choose to stay, make sure to enjoy a sunset cocktail and lots of beach time during your much-needed vacation!

Amazing All-Inclusive Tours

Sure, you can lounge by the pool or dance to live DJs all day, but you can also take the party to another level and book a day trip with your spring break buddies to experience even more of Cancun and the Riviera Maya. One popular excursion is a catamaran tour in Isla Mujeres.

Lots of the boat trip day packages offer all-inclusive food and drink on board, and you’ll be taken around the best of calm and tranquil Isla Mujeres (just 20 minutes from Cancun) by a certified boat captain. Make sure to bring sunscreen!
