Quintana Roo has something for everyone

Most travelers with even the smallest interest in Mexico will have heard of the Yucatan, but few will know Quintana Roo. The state encompasses a large swath of the peninsula from Cancun down to Tulum. Looking to party? You're not going to find better than the lively nightlife in Cancun. How about something more secluded? Try scoring a Quintana Roo vacation rental on the tiny island of Holbox, where vehicles are banned, and things tick along at a much different pace. Are you a history buff? You can almost feel the presence of the Mayans when you amble through the beautiful preserved sites.

Plenty of places to cool off in Quintana Roo

With a seemingly endless coastline, you shouldn't find it difficult to score a waterfront Quintana Roo vacation rental, from which you can dip your toe on to the sand and splash around in the cool sea. Talking of cooling off, Quintana Roo is synonymous with cenotes, natural underground stalactite-laden caverns filled with crystal-clear water. If you've brought a mask and flippers, you can dive down to swim through the network or tunnels and catch a glimpse of the odd turtle. If you're staying on the tiny island of Holbox during the summer, you can dive in to swim with enormous whale sharks. Don't worry, they're completely harmless.

Start in the gateway to Quintana Roo

Most travelers start in Cancun, the gateway to Quintana Roo and the rest of the Yucatan. Just 40 years ago, the city was a fishing village with just 2 hotels. Fast-forward to today and things are quite different. It's a Spring Break hotspot, but if you dig around a little, there's plenty of history and culture. South of Cancun is Tulum, Mayan ruins that overlook the sea from their clifftop location. It would be unthinkable not to visit them, but if you have some extra time when you stay at the Quintana Roo vacation rental, visit Xcaret as well, to admire the ancient pyramids.

Sizzling weather in Quintana Roo

Peak season for Quintana Roo vacation rentals is during the dry months, between December and April. Its near perfect weather draws in vacationers looking to escape the cold winter months further north. The festive season and spring break gets particularly busy and if you plan to travel then, be sure to book up your Quintana Roo vacation rental early to avoid disappointment. To save a few bucks, consider booking up a rental in summer, when the weather is sizzling, as are the knock down prices. There might be the odd afternoon shower, but the long stretches of empty beach more than make up for it.

Mexico's finest nature preserve in Quintana Roo

If you looking to get your wildlife spotting fix, look no further than the state's Sian Ka'an, a 1,600,000-acre biosphere reserve made up of wetlands, tropical jungle and more than 68 miles of impressive Mesoamerican Reef. Keep your eyes peeled for some of the 100 or so species of mammal that call the reserve home, including jaguars and pumas, as well as some of the 345 species of avifauna. In the reserve's waters, you'll find an equally impressive list of critters, like loggerhead and leatherback turtles, manatee and dolphins. A nature lover's paradise.
