For the last two years, more than 30 million travelers passed through Cancun International Airport annually.   

Now this year, just in January alone, the busy airport in the popular vacation destination welcomed just under 3 million visitors.   

With even busier weeks just around the corner, this is why you need to book your 2024 Cancun vacation now.   

Let’s take a look at some other reasons to book now instead of later and some tips for planning the ultimate Cancun vacation.   

Tourists on a Busy Cancun Beach

Spring Break And Easter All Rolled Into One 

January may have been a busy month for Cancun, but the next couple of months are going to be even busier.   

For starters, spring break starts the last week in February and continues until the first week in April.   

Unlike in most years, Easter also falls during this time, on March 31st, so there will also be a large arrival of domestic tourists, which will make the destination even busier.

Getting The Hotel You Want 

Let’s be real, there are plenty of hotels in Cancun to go around, but not all hotels are created equal.   

You might have a certain type of hotel or even a specific hotel that you’re eyeing for your vacation.   

Other travelers might be looking at the same hotel, though, so you’ll want to book early to get the hotel that you want.

Why All-Inclusives Are Such A Popular Choice Among Visitors  

Cancun has all kinds of hotels, including traditional hotels, hostels, boutique hotels, and all-inclusives, just to name a few.   

Of all of the different hotels available in Cancun, all-inclusives are the most popular.   

Travelers love Cancun’s all-inclusives because they offer a hassle-free vacation where everything is at your fingertips.   

Premium drinks, gourmet food, activities, entertainment, and more are available without ever having to leave the resort property.

The Best Way To Get To Your Hotel 

Before you can start your epic Cancun vacation you have to get to your hotel.   

Getting transportation in Cancun can be expensive and a hassle, or you can save a little money and make it easier on yourself by booking your transportation ahead of time.   

Typically rates will be lower when booked in advance, and you’ll have the added bonus of your driver waiting for you upon arrival.

Securing Cancun’s Most Popular Tours 

Many tourists who visit Cancun do so with the intention of taking a tour or two because there’s a lot to see in and around Cancun.   

This is why some of the most popular tours, like Mayan ruins tours, boat tours, and dinner cruises, sell out quickly.   

If you’re set on a certain tour for your vacation, it’s better to book early, and most offer cancellation within a certain timeframe, so you can always cancel if your plans change.

How To Avoid The Crowds Amidst Record Visitor Arrivals  

Some tourists like the crowds, while others are looking for rest and relaxation.   

If you fall into the latter category, then rest assured that there are parts of Cancun where you can escape the crowds, even during busy seasons like spring break.   

Particularly, the areas of Playa Mujeres and Costa Mujeres, both exclusive resort development areas that are about 30 minutes from the bustling Hotel Zone, offer some seclusion from the crowds.

Theres also a tractor that drives by every 10-20 minutes and scoops up the small ones that wash ashore. #grandpalladiumcostamujeres #costamujeresmexico #allinclusiveresort #cancunresort #resortreview #hotelreview #traveltips #cancunbeach #noseaweed #beachreview #solotravel #traveltok #traveltiktok #submarine #oceangate ♬ Ameyatchi – Mathey

Best Time To Visit Cancun In 2024 

The best time to visit Cancun depends on what kind of vacation you want.   

Summers provide the best beach weather and aren’t quite as busy as winter or spring, but winter and spring offer the best weather for sightseeing.   

The slowest time is in the fall, and the weather is amazing, so if you’re hoping for a more peaceful vacation, this is the best time to visit Cancun.
