#88 of 393 in Things to do in Cancun
See how locals and tourists alike gather at El Parque de las Palapas for music, food, leisure, and entertainment. The park serves as a hub of outdoor activity in the downtown area, where artisans sell their handicrafts, food vendors offer a variety of well-priced snacks and local dishes, while trees and cool drinks keep the heat at bay. When you reach the large stage in the middle of the park, check the schedule of shows for both children and adults. Sundays in particular are very crowded and lively.

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.
