29 01 2009
Cancun in Mexico has long been a popular destination for families looking for guaranteed sun, sea and sand at prices that need not break the bank, but the Mexican resort also offers luxury to those who want it, as one magazine poll has recognised.
Forbes Traveler magazine has rated the Ritz-Carlton Cancun in its list of the "absolute best" hotels in the world.
The magazine, published by a company best known for ranking the world's richest men and women, sent a team of independent travel writers to rate the world's finest hotels on various criteria including location and the level of service.
According to Forbes, "the Ritz-Carlton is proof that Mexico's favourite vacation isle hasn't lost [ ] its glitter".
"The resort goes way beyond the dazzling white sand strand and endless ocean views that everyone in Cancun offers."
Mexico offers many cultural delights for those looking for more from their winter sun holidays, including tours of ancient Mayan ruins.
