Averages for Cancun in January
Cancun is the most-visited city in Mexico. There are many hotels and resorts right on the beach as well as several in the heart of the city, which provide a taste of Mexican life and culture. The nightlife is exciting, boasting many clubs and bars.
Those visiting in January can enjoy several cultural celebrations. One of these is the Mayan Village Show. Mayan culture is a huge part of the background of Cancun and this event, held at Xcaret Park, celebrates it.
The Epiphany also takes place during January and is an event of religious significance. Restaurants in Cancun put a twist on the normal festivities by serving cake that has a doll baked inside. Whoever gets the slice with the doll inside invites everyone at his or her table to a meal the following month.
As far as accommodation goes, the choices are varied and many. The "Royal" group is popular among tourists because it is a group of three hotels which are adjacent to one another, allowing guests of all three to use the amenities on each property.
One of the three hotels is the Royal Islander hotel. This is the place to go for tranquillity and relaxation. It sits on the highest point of the area and gives the hotel a private view of the Caribbean, the jungleand the Nichupte lagoon.
The hotel makes getting around simple with its free shuttle service and easy access to the bus system, which is incredibly cheap. The pool, with its swim-up bar, is a very popular feature of the hotel and patrons are consistently satisfied with the portion of beach that the hotel claims.
The hotel’s beach is serviced by many water sports outfitters, so visitors can participate in a wide variety of activities just yards from their hotel room. In addition, "happy hour" lasts from 3 to 6pm.
