How to arrive from the airport
Situated just 30 minutes from Cancun International Airport, Garza Blanca Resort Cancun redefines the meaning of luxury accommodations in Cancun’s most breathtaking Caribbean location.
The south beach Playa Mujeres zone boasts one of the best stretches of white sandy beach in the area while the sea’s waves and currents are gently buffered by the presence of Isla Mujeres, which you can see on the horizon from Garza Blanca Resort Cancun. The resort is also only 5 Minutes from the ferry dock to enjoy day trips to Isla Mujeres’ North Beach or to swim with dolphins and whale sharks and 15 minutes from malls and tourist attractions such as the aquarium, Museo Maya, bars, restaurants and nightclubs.
The whole of the Yucatan Peninsula, where Cancun is situated is also home to some of Mexico’s most prized archeological sites that recall the glory of the Mayan empire that once swept the whole south eastern region of Mexico into Belize and Guatemala. Chichén Itzá, Tulum and El Meco are just some of the Mayan vestiges you can explore during your vacation at Garza Blanca Resort Cancun.
