What to Do in the Cancún Hotel Zone
The Cancún Hotel Zone is one of the most popular places for travelers to stay but there’s more to the area than hotels, white sands, and blue seas. After enjoying the view from the Torre Escénica, browse for souvenirs in Kukulkan Plaza or La Isla Shopping Village before stopping by the El Rey archaeological site or learning about the area at the Cancún Mayan Musuem.
