More than six million tourists visit Cancun every year, but Cancun wasn’t always a holiday destination.

Before Cancun became the go-to holiday destination for both all-inclusive luxury holidays and cheap breaks, it was just a fishing town.

After the 1970s, its location – on the northeast coast of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula – and its pristine beaches couldn’t stay hidden.

The word spread, and today Cancun is one of the best beach holiday destinations in the world.
