Cancún has far more to offer than spring break parties and all-inclusive hotels. Scratch below the surface and explore the city beyond the hotel zone by booking an apartment stay with Culture Trip.

Although it wouldn’t be a trip to Mexico without a few margaritas, in Cancún – at the northeastern tip of the cenote-scattered Yucatán Peninsula – it’s worth wandering away from the bar-lined seafront. Discover ancient displays at the Museo Maya de Cancún, El Meco’s iguana-dotted Mayan ruins and a multitude of local ceviche spots and taco joints.

Flaunting a beachfront location, you’ll need no other convincing to stay at this fantastic Cancún apartment. The water is always in view no matter if you’re prepping lunch in the kitchen, binging TV in the living room or savoring a drink on the balcony. You’re welcome to use the outdoor pool, but once you slip on a swimsuit, you’ll want to head straight to Playa Puerto Juarez. Fresh ceviche and tequila sunrises will keep you calm, cool and comfortable as the sun sets on Cancún.

You’ll feel lucky in these luxury two- and three-bedroom apartments – and that’s not because you’re within a 15-minute drive of the Dubai Palace Casino.

    The serene ocean views alone make this Cancún vacation rental apartment worth more than a quick night’s stay. Coffee, tea and cocktails are easy to stir in the kitchenette – and even easier to imbibe on the private furnished balcony. You’ll see the sea from new vantage points with a 15-minute walk to Forum Beach or a bit longer of a hop to the Punta Cancún Lighthouse. That is, if the seaside bars along the way don’t set you off course.

    Cancún locations don’t get much better than this. These three apartments-with-a-view sit right over the beach at the northern end of the hotel zone. The Coco Bongo, one of the city’s busiest clubs, is outside the front door, and the surrounding streets are packed with bars, burrito stalls and restaurants. The apartments have ample space – especially in the two-bedroom Panoramic Studio, with its wraparound balcony offering 270-degree ocean views, which sleeps seven.

    These Puerto Juarez apartments – some of which are big enough for families – are only a 15-minute cab hop from Cancún’s busy center, yet they’re quiet enough that only the music of the waves and calling gulls will disturb your sleep. While the beach isn’t as long as on Cancún’s hotel strip, the sand is still powdery and pearl-white, plus the apartment has access to a big, free-form infinity pool and children’s paddling area.

    These economical, contemporary studios feature queen-size beds and kitchenettes within Extended Suites Cancún Cumbres, an aparthotel in Cancún’s southern suburbs. Off the main state thoroughfare, Highway 307, it’s an ideal stay for those on a budget who want to be close to the airport. Digital nomads will appreciate the in-room workstations, while downstairs is a small pool and sundeck for lazy afternoons. Stock up on groceries at the large supermarket across the street – there’s also a string of US chain restaurants, cafes and takeaways if you don’t want to cook. Downtown Cancún is less than a 20-minute drive away.
