Traveling alone to cancun

Trying to plan a quick, last minute getaway to cancun - - for next week!

All i want: to stumble out of my hotel onto a great beach, read all day, swim, snorkel have good food. Very simple. I don't want any noisy, family destinations. Just quiet. Thanks in advance for the suggestions!

If you want quiet, no kids running around and nice beachs look at TripAdvisor Hotels on Isla Mujeres right near Cancun.

Most of the Cancun resorts I'm familiar with are couples or family destinations, but some of them are only running 50% occupancy these days. Having been to Cancun multiple times, I don't view it as snorkel friendly all the time, maybe more south (Riviera Maya). But, saying that, I'd encourage to look at the CasaMagna Marriott, the JW Marriott, and the Ritz Carlton. Also, be sure to look at this forum: tripadvisor.com/ShowForum-g150807-i8-Cancun_…

Other than by Club Med, Cancun definitely is not a place to snorkel. You'd have to go to Isla Mujeres or south to Puerto Morelos, but they have plenty of snorkel tour day trips from Cancun, if you really want to stay there.

I dont think of Cancun as a family place, but Im sure there are hotels that cater to them. I would look on the Cancun forum for adults only hotels and see what comes up - or post the question on that forum. Down below Cancun there are plenty of adult only All Inclusives, but I picture a lot of couples - you're probably better off staying in a small hotel on the beach in Playa del Carmen. Playa Maya and Fusion get good reviews.

Having done two trips to Puerto Morelos just a little further south of Cancun, I think it would be better suited if you want to snorkel, and is a little quieter. If you don't want to worry about where your going to eat at night, an all inclusive would be the way to go
