Cancun Guide for Seniors

Cancun for seniors is increasing by time, as travelers of all ages decide Cancun to spend a tropical vacation relaxing in a place of the Caribbean. Cancun is associated for being a crazy party spot, adventure and fun for young people, but it is not necessary to be under 30 years to have a great time here. With hundreds of tropical beaches, excellent restaurant scenes, amazing historic sites and a lot of nature to see, there is so much to do in Cancun for senior travelers. Here is my Cancun Guide for Seniors:

Where to stay?

Cancun-640Cancun best hotels and apartments are located in the tourist zone: “Zona Hotelera” on the big avenue next to the beach, apartments at the seashore are beautiful, it is like a dream. There are other nice appartments in the center of Cancun, I recommend the ones close to Las Americas Mall at Bonampak Avenue, it is very safe and lower in costs than the Zona Hotelera. Most hotels in Cancun have a party atmosphere, most their activities are specially for the young travelers, so I made a detailed research of the best hotels in Cancun for senior travelers, this are:

-Le Blanc Spa & Resort
-Secrets The Vine Cancun Resort & Spa
-NIZUC Resort & Spa
-Paradisus Cancun
-Sun Spa
-Live Aqua Cancun All Inclusive
-Beach Palace
-Hyatt Zilara Cancun
-Moon Palace Golf Spa & Resort

How to get there?

What to do?

Enjoy the beach of Cancun

Cancun Beach Palsm

Most travelers in Cancun go to the beaches. There is more than 20 km of pure beach in Cancun and not all of them are full with Spring Breakers or familes with children. Don’t go to Playa Tortugas, Playa Langosta or Playa Forum, most of the time they are full with parties and sports. The most relaxing beaches are located on the South: Playa Marlin or Playa Delfines, there is not a lot of people on those because they are located far from the discos and the waves are a little bit stronger.

Have a dinner at a restaurant in the Zona Hotelera


With so much fresh fish, seafood, fruit and vegetables to choose from, there’s little chance of going hungry in Cancun. Cancun restaurants of the Zona Hotelera are located next to the lagoon. Most of them are luxury and perfect to share a romantic dinner. It is very important to make a reservation before going. My best recommendation is Puerto Madero, Fish and Steak House, it is delicious and the view is beautiful when the sun goes down. There are other local restaurants. The best mexican food is located in the downtown of Cancun where you can eat the typical enchiladas, tacos or chilaquiles.

Visit Tulum


Tulum Starry SKy

Tulum is one of the best places for Senior Travelers. It’s an ecological town of white sand and cristaline beaches where thousands of travelers around the world choose for its relaxing and purifying atmosphere. Tulum beaches are very calm. Most hotels of Tulum turn off the lights after 7 pm and you can see the starry skies like in the movie of Titanic. In Tulum, you will be able to see the only archaeological Mayan Site in front of the beach. Tulum from Cancun Airport.
