Cancun is the No.1 holiday destination in Mexico, located on the sandy coastline of the Mexican Caribbean.
Most Cancun resorts, hotels, and condominiums are located in a long island strip called the "Hotel Zone". The island's energized atmosphere emanates from an area known as the Party Zone featuring the best nightclubs, bars, restaurants, and shopping malls.
The Riviera Maya is located along the coast south of Cancun, and home to the Fairmont Mayakoba. Generally a quieter area, with access to the lively shopping and restaurant area of Puerto del Carmen, and also with an ever expanding choice of championship golf courses.
Quiet beaches, pleasant Caribbean temperatures, and outdoor attractions including Xcaret have made the Riviera Maya an instant hit with many top players on the PGA tour, and an increasing number of leisure golfers internationally.
