the cancunian

We offer a more genuine twist of what local businesses have to offer for people who visit the Riviera Maya. We want to present Cancun as more than the stereotype it has gained over the years and more like the special rare gem it is

what makes a cancunian?

A Cancunian is part of a generation that was born and raised in Cancun. We have parents who came as pioneers that helped to build what there is today. We are the first generation to inherit a city that still has room for us to mark for future generations

We grew up befriending nature and its inhabitants. Spending weekends on the beach learning the ocean’s moods. We can tell you what the currents things today and where you can swim and where to stir away.

Cancunians are exposed to different points of view due to national and international immigrants as well as tourist visitors. We learned to be curious about other cultures and are respectful of their points of view. We are creatures of ongoing evolution and the best hosts to our guests.

We count ourselves lucky to witness the sun’s rising in the ocean’s horizon;
sometimes met with the end of a good party.
