Car Rental at Cancún Airport
Turquoise waters, Yucatecan food, and stunning outdoor vistas await with a rental car from Cancún Airport. Situated on the glorious Yucatán Peninsula in a region renowned for its palm tree-lined sandy shores, Cancún is as idyllic as a beach holiday gets. However, it's not all beautiful landscapes and lazy sea swimming; there are historical and cultural adventures to be had here, too, with possibilities to visit the famed Chichén Itzá among other ancient Mayan ruins with rental cars from Cancún International Airport.
Main attractions and beaches in Cancún
Cancún's 12 miles stretch of white sandy beach in Zona Hotelera is the city's biggest pull, offering well-tended swimming, sunbathing, dining and drinking. For a slightly quieter experience, the stretch of coast just north of Cancún's downtown area is particularly laid back. Both beach areas offer some of the most perfect swimming conditions in Mexico. However, it’s not all super developed; Isla Blanca, just north of Cancún, offers unspoiled beaches with views over to the bird-lovers paradise of Isla Contoy.
Cancún also offers plenty of museums and historical attractions for time spent away from the beach. The Museo Maya de Cancún is a particular treasure, holding an important collection of Mayan artifacts in a cool, modern setting. There are also several important archaeological sites just moments from the city's famed beaches, including San Miguelito and Zona Arqueológica El Rey. When you rent a car in Cancún Airport you get all these possibilities and more, with day trips to important sites like Tulum, Ek' Balam and Coba.
Cancún is very kid-friendly, with favorable paddling waters and plentiful activities. For a fun day out, why not take your cheap rental car from Cancún Airportto Xplor Park, a fun jungle playground with cave rafting and exhilarating zip lines.
What to eat and drink in Cancún
Cancún offers the best of both culinary worlds: World-class haute cuisine and delicious, cheap street food. If you want to eat like a local, be sure to try the cochinita pibil, a succulent slowly roasted pork dish that you'll find throughout the downtown area and along Avenida Náder. You should also opt for the region's famed panuchos, a fried tortilla dish of beans and corn. That’s not to mention the stunning selection of freshly-caught seafood found in the highly affordable thatched-roof restaurants along the waterfront. You’re quite simply spoilt for choice.
Outdoor excursions from Cancún
With a cheap car rental from Cancún Airport, you can visit some of the most prized outdoor attractions, seaborne activities and hiking trails in the Yucatán Peninsula. No visit here is complete without a trip to a cenote. Take a picnic, enjoy a hike and take a dip in one of the 8 prized sinkholes (like Zacil-ha) along La Ruta De Los Cenotes. Another particular must is to hike a section of the Mayan Route. For avid seafarers and beach dwellers, trips to the uninhabited Isla Contoy offer plentiful snorkeling, swimming and hiking opportunities.
