    There are many things to see and do, it is safe to walk or go by car, is in very good condition if it rains a lot the next day already you are giving maintenance, it has good transport system.

    You take care with this Avenue since it is signposted with very low speeds that nobody respects but that the municipal government through its Department of transit used to stop vehicles, especially if you're a tourist. Only caution respecting the signs.

    We took the bus to the docks and local beach for less than a dollar. We also walked to the flea market, and mall. The avenue is totally safe. Go early before the sun gets too hot!  more »

Where to stay in Cancun

Cancun's accommodations cater to everyone from spring-break partygoers to distinguished luxury seekers. By far the most densely developed area for hotels is the boomerang-shaped Punta Nizuc-Cancun and the connecting Bulevar Kukulcan, projecting out into the sea and offering prime beach access. Among the stylish resorts, you can find expansive party hostels offering large swimming pools. If you'd like a more independent Cancun vacation, consider staying at one of the private rentals scattered along the coast.
