Cancun, Mexico

Cancun is a legendary party spot for single people looking to create heroic vacation stories; especially those who want those stories to stay safely South of the border when they return home.

Located on the Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun offers luxurious, all inclusive hotels on a beachfront paradise with white finely ground sand that doesn’t burn your feet. It is an easy place to relax, which is great when you feel the need to recoup your energy for more water sports, partying, or testing the limits of Mexican law enforcement.

Swim at an eco-park, explore Mayan ruins, or windsurf in a bay filled with crocodiles (so you can understand how the ladies feel when your crew is in town). For the less adventurous, enjoy golf, snorkeling, scuba, and other vacation mainstays. By night, take a booze cruise or simply cruise the affordable and notoriously wild bar and club scene.

Cancun has something for everyone, no matter how you choose to cut loose. Don’t worry, we won’t tell!
