Traveling to Cancun on a Budget
Visiting Mexico on its own sounds like a dream come true, but just hearing about Cancun and the exotic golden beaches and feeling that you’re in paradise sounds even more heavenly. But will traveling to Cancun really break the bank? Here’s what you need to know about traveling to Cancun.
Accommodations usually account for the largest expense when traveling. Although there is not much to think about in regards to where to stay in Cancun (as you can stay anywhere from fancy beach resorts to backpacker hostels), you can decide how cheap or expensive you want your accommodations to be and can spend according to your budget. You can choose from a hostel, a bed and breakfast, renting an apartment, or staying at a hotel. The experience you get will be entirely different, so if you can afford it, staying at an all-inclusive beach resort can ensure that you have the time of your life. In all cases, Cancun has something amazing to suit all budgets, guaranteeing you’ll have a wonderful time.
The street food you’ll come across in Cancun is to die for. You won’t get bored of eating tacos over and over again because they’re absolutely delicious. And in terms of expenses, you’ll find that they’re dirt cheap. You will find fancy restaurants if that’s what you’re after, but just keep in mind that they will be on the expensive side. However, with street food around every corner, there’s no reason for you to spend on restaurants if you’re on a budget.
Getting around in Cancun is fairly easy with multiple options. You can choose between taxis, buses, minivans, or even hitchhiking. They’re all quite easy to find and will get you to your destination for a reasonable price. Even the taxis will be quite cheap unless you’re in a touristy area, where they don’t follow the flat rate. However, if you’re looking for a really cheap means of transportation, then the public buses will be your safest, easiest, and best option.
When in Cancun, there’s so much to do: the variety of adventures and activities in Cancun can make your travel extremely exciting. From shopping to spas and playing golf, you’ll find a whole lot of fun to keep you entertained depending on what you enjoy. There are also numerous water activities to enjoy such as swimming with dolphins, snorkeling, scuba diving or even just taking a dip in the water.
The price of these activities differ according to location, so if you want to stay away from the expensive areas, head to where the locals hang out and you’ll find the prices rather appropriate. Cancun also offers exceptional nightlife, where you can either choose to spend it in the crowded tourist areas or also follow the locals and enjoy a night out in true Cancun style.
Traveling to Cancun doesn’t have to break the bank and you can choose to enjoy it according to your budget. Whether you’re looking for an all-inclusive luxurious holiday or a low-budget backpacking experience, you can easily find any options to suit your budget and enjoy a vacation like never before.
