New attractions, excursions and offerings in Cancun

  • Published by Ozgur Tore

cancun2The Cancun Convention & Visitors Bureau announced an array of new attractions, excursions and offerings that will propel Cancun into an exciting 2016.

Tour operators and hoteliers expect the destination to top 2015’s record-breaking year of 5 million visitors by around four percent.

In honor of the 25th anniversary celebration of the popular Xcaret Park, the opening of the new Xenses Park has been announced. With an investment of over $20 million USD, Xenses is slated to open to the public on June 1, 2016, and is expected to receive about 1,500 to 3,000 visitors per day. The new park will create sensorial, olfactory, auditory and tactile experiences for its visitors through the combination of various natural elements and visual effects.

In January 2016 the destination welcomed the inauguration of Hyatt Ziva Cancun, the second Hyatt all-inclusive resort property in Cancun. Some of the all-inclusive perks guests can enjoy during their stay at the newly unveiled property include an on-site microbrewery, a tequila bar, and a sweets shop featuring pastries and chocolate fountains.

The official opening of Cancun’s new wax museum took place last month on January 20, 2016. Located at La Isla Shopping Village in the Cancun Hotel Zone, the city’s first ever wax museum has 23 rooms displaying more than 100 characters from movies to sports and music figures.

Fiesta Americana Grand Coral Beach Cancun recently launched its exclusive new "e-concierge" mobile app, which is now available for download in the App Store and Google Play for both iOS and Android devices. The resort's innovative digital concierge platform aims to elevate guest experience to the next level by offering visitors the ease of vacation planning with just the click of a button after making their reservation and during their stay.

To continue solidifying its place as one of the Mexican Caribbean’s best live entertainment resort, Oasis Hotels & Resorts is hosting its annual Oasis Jazz U Festival once again this May. The event will feature an exceptional line-up of artists in May, including: Los Músicós de Jose, Tower of Power, and Grammy Award-winning recording artist Chaka Khan.

“We are proud to see the growth of the destination’s dynamic tourism offering as it adds hotels, restaurants and attractions to its expanding repertoire. Cancun’s constant evolution will help it continue to solidify its international presence as one of the most popular tourism destinations in the world.” said Jesus Almaguer, CEO of the Cancun CVB.

The newest additions to Cancun will enhance the destination’s already robust tourism offerings and provide visitors with an additional incentive to choose Cancun as their top vacation destination.
