Cancun is one of our favorite vacation spots. (just look at our Instagram!) Besides the beautiful beaches, fantastic weather and amazing margaritas, we just love the whole vibe. Here are a few of our Cancun faves:

TO STAY: The Westin Luganamar Ocean Resort is perfectly situated between the beach and the mall. Need we say more? But seriously, the hotel offers two swimming pools (including a swim up bar!), a spa and several restaurants. Upon arrival, you are even provided with your own personal concierge.

TO EAT: Nothing beats the vibe or the views at the Thai Lounge. Seated in a private hut, flip through the restaurant’s menu (loaded on a tablet) for a large selection of Thai specialties and cocktails. Reserve a table on the lagoon and see the most incredible views of sunset.

TO DO: If you get tired of the beach (said no one ever) or you’re just in need of some retail therapy, take a walk through La Isla Shopping Village. In addition to a variety of retail stores and souvenir shops, there are also a number of activities including a movie theater, sea-doo rentals, restaurants and an interactive aquarium.

NOT TO MISS: La Gran Rueda Cancun is a giant 200 feet high ferris wheel with 42 climate-controlled gondolas. The entire ride lasts approximately 20 minutes and features panoramic views of the city.
