There’s really no better way to begin a holiday than with a massage. Relax at the resort you have booked into and treat yourself to an indulgent spa experience where you’ll get to enjoy a whole range of massages, treatments, and even manicures and pedicures. And the best part, since you’re at an All-Inclusive resort, you may not even have to pay any extra because this might just be part of your package deal!
Within most resorts, there are highly skilled masseurs ready to soothe your accumulated aches and pains from the flight. After this luxurious experience, devote some of that hard-earned holiday time to relaxing by the seaside with a cocktail (or five) and soak in the sun on your very own mini paradise.

Venture to Valladoid
Venture out of your resort to the nearest colonial town to Cancun – Valladoid. After two years of polish and upgrades, this stunning town is luring visitors with its replanted town square, buildings lavished with fresh coats of colourful paint. This is a town rich in history. The two famous churches are both worth a visit. The first, the Iglesia de San Gervasio (known to locals as San Servasio), is right on the main square. A 10-minute walk southwest on Los Frailes Street will take you to the second, the 16th-century terra-cotta-coloured Iglesia San Bernardino, a church and Franciscan monastery. Look for ancient frescoes, carved altarpieces and elegantly crumbling plaster walls.
Shop in Valladoid
Valladoid is great for more than just a cultural experience because here is where you can indulge in some retail therapy! Swing by their brand-new crafts bazaar, the Centro Artesanal Zaci, where vendors sell embroidered Mayan dresses, leather bags and huaraches (leather-thonged sandal), the rubber-soled sandals favoured by locals. As you’re exploring the town, stop by Coqui Coqui. This stylish, Italian-flavoured boutique sells gorgeous handmade scarves, fringed bags, and seven different perfumes using local scents like eucalyptus, cedar, agave and plumeria.
