I went twice within a couple months. There is so much to do that you can experience something different each time. I like visiting for affordability especially if you’re willing to book outside of the resorts. Airbnb and take the bus everywhere for $1 and you’ll have plenty money to spare on a activity’s. The Mayan Ruins, Excaret, The Ferry to Isla, just so much. If you can snap a cheap flight you can surely spend under $500pp and have a great time.

If I'm honest I prefer Playa del Carmen and Tulum. Cancun is a bit too 'Vegas' for me, plus it is super expensive. But if you are looking to party and don't mind splashing the cash you can have an amazing time here.
