5 reasons to spend New Year's holidays in Cancun

December, 2018

The new year's holiday season is approaching is supposed to be a time where we let go of our regular commitments, sit back, and relax with family and friends. After all, that’s why we save up all of our vacation days, right? But for couples and families alike, the season often turns into attending one commitment after another. And let’s be honest, fun and relaxation hardly enter into the equation for most of those events.

What happened to that special feeling you get when you started to feel a chill in the air and heard holiday music being played on the radio?

It moved to Cancun at Moon Palace Cancun and Palace Resorts. As should your holiday season.

For families, couples and even solo travels, the prospect of leaving behind all the commitments of holiday season is increasingly becoming an option they are exploring.

So, exactly what does a Cancun Christmas and Holiday Season mean? Glad you asked, here are 5 Ways That Christmas in Cancun Rocks

New year holidays in Cancun await you at Moon Palace

The Weather Outside is NOT Frightful

While most of the Northern Hemisphere is concerned with layering up before going outside, you’ll be discarding your clothes like gift wrapping on New Year’s Eve. The average temperature in Cancun is in mid-70s in December. This alone is reason to ditch the in-laws and make your way to the Yucatan Peninsula.

Seasonal Fun Comes With the Moon Palace and Palace Resorts Package

Searching for gifts and preparing meals hardly leaves room for fun with your partner or family. At Moon Palace and Palace Resorts however, holiday comes included with every stay. At Moon Palace Cancun on this particular occasion, guest can enjoy the sweets and treats of a Christmas Village from now until early January, greet a parachute-clad Santa Claus on Christmas Eve, and leave the Christmas dinner preparations in the capable hand of world-class chefs.

Shopping Done Easy

The Mall Rush as the holidays approach can be worse than your morning commute, and both are to be avoided at all cost. Still, you have to buy some gifts, right? At Moon Palace and Palace Resorts, you can look for a variety of gifts at the resort, or take a quick trip to any of Cancun’s high-end shopping malls.

Looking for a unique keepsake for that special someone? Try some outdoor markets as well.

The Turkey Is On Us

Traditionalists might balk at a holiday vacation getaway for no other reason than the prospect of missing out on several holiday meals. After all, sitting down for a traditional meal – aside from all the work that goes into it – is one of the staples of the holiday season. Luckily, you don’t need to let that go in Cancun and at Moon Palace or Palace Resorts.

The truth is your holiday dining experience will be heightened significantly. Every day and night at the resorts means a new opportunity to taste a different take on a holiday meal at first-class restaurants that feature international cuisine from around the world.

Like to stick with the basics: turkey, cranberries, mashed potatoes, stuffing, ham, and the like? No worries, you have all that at your fingertips and with 24-hour room service.

Party Like It’s 2019

At the end of the day, your holiday celebrations should be remembered as a big party. And that is what you get at Moon Palace and Palace Resorts. Rest assured that New Year’s activities are second to none, including the intriguing “Palaceland” NYE dinner to be held for guests (reservation only) at Moon Palace Arena, complete with an aerial dance display and Tomorrowland-inspired setting.

With so much to do in Cancun and so few commitments needed from you, is it any wonder why Cancun is becoming Santa’s preferred getaway, you know, after he finishes up his day job!

#BestServer of our entire stay 7 night vacay

I want to give a BIG shout out to Fernando for his #TopShelfService. My family and I have been on vacation for 7 nights at the #SunriseMoonPalace and his service was the perfect example of why you would come to this resort. If you enjoy Indian cuisine, this is your spot! Enjoy


Swimming with dolphins was wonderful: they were humanely treated and not mobbed by tourists.

Overall great experience: the rooms, food (many options were available), drinks and service are all great. Grounds neatly kept.
However, the beach and water has a lot of trash in it (beware, swimmers).

Love it!

We celebrated our daughter’s graduation from Dental school and my birthday May 23-30. From start to finish we had a great week! The accommodations were fabulous, the restaurants were excellent and the service was over the top!
