Share The Article

Last Updated

Cancun is a family-friendly vacation destination, with plenty of hotels and resorts that welcome the whole family.   

But it’s also a fabulous destination for adult-only vacations, and there is no shortage of hotels and resorts that are just for adults.   

In fact, this is one of the main reasons why Cancun is the best destination for travelers looking for an adult-only vacation, and the number of hotels that cater to this group is steadily growing.

More Adult-Only Hotels Than Ever Before 

According to a recent report, there are more adult-only hotels in Cancun than ever before, and in fact, five out of every 100 Mexican Caribbean hotels are exclusively for adults.   

The number of adult-only hotels has nearly doubled in the state over the last five years.   

At the end of last year, there were more than 50 adult-only hotels to choose from, and that number is growing.

Why Choose An Adult-Only Hotel 

Children are great, but sometimes you want to get away without the kids, and when you do, it only makes sense to go someplace where kids are not allowed.   

This is why adult-only hotels are an ingenious idea.   

Additionally, adult-only hotels tend to be a little bit more on the luxurious side, with more adult-focused amenities.

Amazing Adult-Only All-Inclusives 

Of all the adult-only hotels you have to choose from, the all-inclusives are no doubt the best option for your kid-free Cancun vacation.   

Most come with amazing amenities like gourmet all-inclusive dining, unlimited premium beverages, 24-hour in-room service, and more.   

Additionally, adult-only all-inclusives often provide entertainment and activities for adults as well.

Plenty Of Hotels With Adult-Only Areas 

If you are traveling with children or just don’t mind the presence of children on your adult-only vacation, there are also plenty of hotels with adult-only areas.   

Typically, these hotels will have a pool just for adults, as well as lounges and sometimes even restaurants.   

There may still be children on the property, but adults have their own spaces too.

Adult-Only VS Hotel With Adult-Only Areas 

The difference between an adult-only hotel and a hotel with an adult-only area is that you will see and hear kids on the property.   

Additionally, amenities, activities, and entertainment might be more family-focused.   

An adult-only hotel, on the other hand, is a haven for those looking for a relaxing, child-free vacation.

Best Time To Visit Cancun For An Adult-Only Vacation 

Fall and winter are great times to take an adult-only vacation in Cancun because kids are in school, so there’s a limited amount of kids anyway.   

Summers are full of families vacationing, so if you’re trying to experience an adult-only getaway, you’ll want to be very selective about the hotel you choose.   

During this time, it’s best to choose a hotel exclusively for adults because you’ll find many more families vacationing in Cancun during the summer months.

Flights To Cancun This Fall And Winter 

Another reason fall and winter are the best times to visit Cancun is the increase in connectivity during this time.   

Currently, American travelers can book nonstop flights from 38 U.S. cities to Cancun International Airport, and from some of those cities, there are numerous flights each week.   

That, combined with all of the other great reasons that Cancun makes for a great adult-only vacation destination, means that the time to book that Cancun vacation is now.
