Rooms from 544 pesos in Cancun for a cheap vacation


We show you hotels with “all-inclusive” plans and apartments for cheap rent for a vacation in Cancun

Have you ever said no to Cancun because it is too expensive? This time we set out to show that, although it is an international destination with an immense tourist offer, not everything here is luxury and it is possible to find affordable options adaptable to your plans and preferences. 

We are looking for eight affordable accommodations in Cancun , which have a good balance between price and services. That is, we are not looking for the cheapest in the city, but some of the places that offer you more for less money. All have implemented changes to offer greater security after the Covid-19 contingency

We take into account only prices for private rooms and all include taxes; however, there is an extra tax of 26 pesos at the destination for the new biosecurity measures. The rates we are looking for are for the month of October, which is low season. 

Selina Cancun Laguna

It is like a luxury hostel because, although in addition to private rooms it offers shared dorms, it is characterized by its attractive decoration, variety of activities and services. Of course, the prices are still cheap and offer free cancellation up to one day before your arrival. It is located in the Hotel Zone of Cancun . 

Their cheapest private room is called Micro. It is a small space with a bed for two people, like the cabin that you would find on a train or a ship (you can see it in the photo, two paragraphs below); it has a shared bathroom with up to four rooms of the same category. Staying here would cost you 544 pesos per night for two people or 754 pesos if they want to include breakfast. 

A totally private standard room costs you from 1,142 pesos per night in double occupancy. 

Selina Cancun Laguna has a garden, an outdoor pool, a Yucatecan-style restaurant, a wellness center with massages and a workspace (in case you travel for this purpose). You can book tours directly with the administration.
