$379 for a Four-Night Stay in a Studio Room at Avalon Grand Cancun (Up to $1,052 Value)

Beachfront Resort Close to Shopping, Restaurants, and Nightlife

The turquoise expanse of water lapping the sandy banks of Cancun’s hotel zone is called Nichupté Lagoon. It’s actually made up of eight interlocking lagoons, each of which is separated from the Caribbean Sea only by a thin strip of land accessed by Boulevard Kukulkan. Most visitors to Cancun spend at least a little time in Nichupté. By day, kayaks, jet skis, and water-skiers crisscross the surface. But at night, the water is dark and tranquil—a romantic backdrop for strolls along the sand or dinner at a beachfront restaurant. Set right along the banks of the lagoon is the Avalon Grand Cancun, a towering resort occupying a prime spot amid 14 miles of pristine coastline. Since it’s located in the heart of the hotel zone, guests also have convenient access to shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.

From its setting on Boulevard Kukulkan, the 119-room hotel overlooks the Caribbean on one side and the Nichupté Lagoon on the other. There are two pools to relax by, and each has its own distinct atmosphere. One is quiet and sophisticated, with tuxedo-clad lifeguards and a poolside bar serving cocktails. The other is an infinity pool that overlooks the Caribbean and caters to families. At the hotel’s onsite restaurants, you can find international and Mexican cuisine as well as pub fare.

Cancun, Mexico: Year-Round Spring-Break Atmosphere Mixed with Quiet Beach Life

Cancun is widely recognized as the spring-break capital of the world. If you’re looking to party, the tequila bars and dance clubs of El Centro won’t let you down. But even if you’re looking for a more sedate experience, Cancun has much to recommend it. First and foremost, of course, are the beaches, which have soft, powdery sand and warm, crystal-clear waters. Nature lovers enjoy turtle watching off Isla Mujeres and scuba diving or snorkeling off Cozumel. You can also take day trips to Chichen Itza’s iconic Mayan pyramid and the seaside ruins atop the cliffs of Tulum. In both cases, it’s best to travel early in the day so you get there before the tour buses start arriving.
