Avenida Kukulkan is very well maintained and safe. Public transportation runs 24/7 and the cost is just a fraction of a taxi bill. We stayed at the Oasis Sens and had a rental. While driving back from the club area to our hotel at midnight on Avenida Kukulcan, we were stopped immediately after passing the famous CANCUN sign. The Municipal... More

Shops, restaurants, flea markets, people watching, busses, crazy pedestrians, looming gated hotels, food stands, wandering cats, police on street corners, babes in bikinis and tourists galore, this long highway has it all you've seen before in any other town. This is the Cancun edition. Exciting but nothing spectacular.

This is the main thorough fare in Cancun. Most everything in the Hotel zone is on or reached by going down Kukulkan. If you miss this you haven't been to Cancun.

One of the main avenues in Cancun - clean, full of shops, restaurants, etc. Too long to walk all the way but there is a cheap public bus so just hop in and out a few times...

I love the shell statues in this traffic circle! I'm grateful to never have to drive in it as a tourist because it's insane but it's very pretty and a great every point for the hotel zone!

You will surely drive along the Avenida Kulkulkan at some point during your visit to Cancun. It is named in honor of the plumed snake diety of pre-Columbian times, and shares its name with the principal pyramid at Chichen Itza. The Avenida is unbelievably clean at all hours of the day; I've traveled this road on my many visits to... More

This street was busy from sun up until sun down. We did not stay in the Zona Hotelera so we had to travel by bus every day if we wanted to come down, which was fine. The street is beautiful and well maintained. Lined with palm trees and nature all around. The Laguna (with crocodiles!) is on one side and... More

I did not visit the "in" part. However the problem in Mexico is always the same: they try to convince you to get into their shops and this is a repellent for tourists.
