Cancun – it’s the Mexican jewel in the turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean.  Explore mysterious ancient ruins preserved for those of us with a sense of adventure.  Come to Cancun, where Mayan ruins stand as remnants of another civilization that appreciated the natural beauty of this exotic island resort. 

Cancun is one of the most popular vacation destinations on the planet and with good reason.  It is a vacation wonderland:  sugary beaches, mesmerizing turquoise waters, sunsets, and sunrises that will put you in heaven.

Nearby is the Xel-Ha National Park, which features an aquatic sanctuary fed simultaneously by subterranean freshwater springs mixed with Caribbean Sea water, and is home to countless species of tropical fish.  And don’t forget to visit Tulum, famous Post-Classic Mayan ruins with over 60 individual restored structures and a fantastic view of the rugged turquoise coastline from its perch atop limestone cliffs.

Only 45 miles south of Cancun is Xcaret, for more than ten centuries one of the most important Mayan ceremonial centers and seaports.  Today it is an engineering masterpiece – created by nature and man.  Swim through an underground sacred river, learn to scuba or swim with the Xcaret dolphins.

For centuries Cancun has been the meeting place for sunworshippers.  With its soothing warm climate and crystal-clear waters, Cancun is ideal for all water sports – from scuba diving to parasailing, snorkeling to deep-sea fishing.  Cancun also has a quaintness and charm all to itself.  Here you’ll find excellent bargains in pottery, basket weaving, silver, and leather.  Whatever your interests are, Cancun has it all!


The Hyatt Ziva Cancun is a stunning, beachfront resort on the most beautiful strip in Cancun.  Guests will discover a modern resort with a sophisticated Mexican design perfect for adults as well as families.  Opened in 2015, the Hyatt Ziva Cancun is fun, flirty and colorful, yet it adheres to Hyatt’s high standards.  It is the only resort in the region surrounded on three sides by the sparkling Caribbean Sea.

Guests arrive through an airy, elevated lobby with sitting areas that are beautifully decorated and surrounded by stand-alone art pieces that resemble driftwood. Dining options abound with eight restaurants, including a snack bar and a coffeehouse that caters to Starbucks fans. The main buffet, El Mercado, offers all meals with an alfresco section. The remaining a la carte restaurants offer a wide variety of cuisine and do not require reservations.  Moongate features Asian cuisines and a hibachi grill. Bastille is available for adults only and features exquisite French cuisine.  A wood-fired pizza oven is the big draw at Italian-themed Lorenzo’s. Chevy’s is a 1950s-themed diner that boasts a vintage Chevrolet convertible where diners can sit to munch on burgers and fries. Habaneros, by the beach, is open for lunch and dinner and serves a Mexican menu of tacos and ceviche.  Numerous bars are scattered throughout the resort.  The biggest and most popular is Tres Cerveza’s, a microbrewery and sports bar.

The Hyatt Ziva Cancun features a large pool with a swim-up bar and whirlpool tub plus two additional pools. Two beaches offer a wide variety of non-motorized water sports including sailboarding and kayaking.  A tennis court is lit for night play, and the fitness center sports views of the ocean and dolphinarium. An outdoor amphitheater hosts live music, shows and other performances. The ocean-view spa emphasizes relaxation with a selection of treatments to soothe the mind, body and soul.

Your oversized guest room is beautifully decorated with contemporary décor, woven tapestries, marble floors and one king or two queen beds.  Additional amenities include flat-screen TV, in-room safe, private balcony, coffee maker, 24-hour room service and Wi-Fi.  Baths feature dual vanities, great lighting, oversize glassed-in showers with rainfall shower heads, hair dryer and KenetMD products.

This luxurious all-inclusive resort is perfect for those wanting to play in the Caribbean Sea and explore Cancun.
