Cancun Bursts with Culture, Sports, and Eco-Consciousness

Cancun ditches beach bum image for sustainable tourism. Congresses, carnivals, marathons and cultural feasts abound, with a sprinkle of sharks and pirate taxis. Plus, insights on tourist rejections and a year-round event calendar.

Yo ho, yo ho, a pirate's life for me! But maybe not in Cancun. As the city preps for a swashbuckling year of events, a hidden cove of unauthorized taxis is causing some choppy waters. But fear not, mateys, there's more to Cancun than rogue rides and rogue sharks (though we'll get to those later). Buckle up because we're setting sail for a whirlwind tour of what's hot in Cancun 2024!

From Carnival to Congress:

First up, let's ditch the eyepatch and don our fanciest feathers for the Cancun Carnival (Feb 8-13). Think samba meets salsa, with a sprinkle of sequins and a whole lot of rumba. Then, swap the maracas for mind-melds at the First Ibero-American Congress of Sustainable, Inclusive and Fair Tourism (Mar 19-22). This brainy bash, hosted at the swanky Breathless Cancún hotel, promises to chart the future of responsible travel.
