Cancún, Quintana Roo, Mexico
Enjoying the View from the Westin Resort and Spa CancunThe Westin Resort and Spa Cancun is one of the more reasonably priced hotels in the beach front strip because it is located at the southern end. If you don't mind the resort location, go for the Beach Club rooms reserved for Starwood Preferred Guests and you will enjoy breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea just like the one we had. With the bonus heavenly beds and heavenly showers, your stay would certainly be unforgettable. Mini buses would regularly ply from the resort to the city center so it is not really inconvenient to stay at this resort just because of its location. Personally, I would prefer more secluded places like this than crowded ones.
Recommended side trips from Cancun would be the more stunning Tulum and Playa del Carmen beaches and the famous Chichen Itza.
