Where to eat well for less in Cancun

Cancun is defined by its endless possibilities. Not only in terms of accommodations, but also when it comes to its restaurants. From the most luxurious and select dining experiences, many of which you’ll find in hotels, to fast food stalls and even international cuisine, Cancun has it all. The average price for a meal is around € 8, but if you are looking for cheap restaurants without compromising on quality, we recommend Pescaditos, The Surfin Burrito or Deli Barlovento. You'll savour the exquisitely rich Mexican and Caribbean flavours in all of them. Truly a delight for the senses! 


Transfers from Cancun airport to your hotel

Knowing how to get around Cancun is essential if you don't want to have to worry about transportation. There are multiple bus lines available that will get you directly to your accommodation from the airport. However, the main and most frequent service is the route connecting to the city centre. If you are staying at a hotel in the coastal area, you can either transfer to another line or take a taxi and save time. The taxi fare should be around € 25 and only takes about 17 minutes.  

There are more transportation-related tips for travellers in Cancun that should be of great help. Choosing to use Uber, a ride-hailing service that works by means of an app, is always an excellent option. Its services are similar to those of a taxi, but it operates more like public transport. Not only is it a comfortable service, it's also very affordable! Moving around with Uber will fit within your budget perfectly and will allow you to get about safely and easily. 

These are the main ways to get from the Cancun airport to your hotel. In any case, it is for the best that you plan and organise your arrival to Cancun beforehand.

Recommendations for visiting Cancun: Some places of interest

Cancun is a destination with no shortage of monuments and top-rated tourist attractions. As such, certain places should be on your must-visit list while on your trip to Cancun.

What is the best time of the year to travel to Cancun?

Cancun is the perfect place to enjoy gorgeous and heavenly beaches, and discover its fascinating culture and history dating back to the ancient Mayan civilisation. But what is the best time of the year to travel to this paradise? Due to its geographical location, the seasons in Cancun are in reverse. It is therefore an ideal destination to escape the winter season in Spain.  

From December to March, temperatures are warm and with low humidity, making them the best months to enjoy a well-deserved holiday. In addition, you can bathe in the water without worrying about being cold and even engage in water sports. However, bear in mind that it is precisely for this reason that these are the high season months. During this time of the year, it is normal to find more tourists in Cancun, all of whom are looking to enjoy the sunshine and warm weather.  

On the other hand, the low season is from May to November. If you’re yearning for a more relaxed atmosphere, this is the ideal time of the year to go on holidays to Cancun.  

What is the local currency in Cancun and what is its value compared to the Euro?

The currency used locally is the Mexican peso, which is divided into 100 cents. If you are travelling to Cancun and wish to avoid complications, it is best to exchange currency beforehand. However, since it is a coveted tourist destination, US dollars are also accepted in most establishments.  

Cash is also the way to save on unnecessary commissions, since paying with credit or debit card entails considerable exchange rates. We recommend you to check the exchange rate before you travel to choose the best option. 

Time difference between Cancun and Spain

The time difference is of 6 hours. In other words, when it is 3:00 p.m. in Madrid, it is 9:00 a.m. in Cancun. Besides being in a different time zone, the daylight savings time is also different in Mexico. That is to say, it is not changed on the exact same day. In Spain, the last weekend of the month is used as reference, during which the clock is moved backwards or forwards on the night from Saturday to Sunday. However, in Mexico this is done on the last day of the month.
