The city of Cancún is one of Mexico's most popular spots for both tourists and expats. Its tropical climate and vibrant city life are just two of the attractions. You will find living here relatively cheap (for example, a three-bedroom apartment in the city center costs approximately 700 USD per month to rent), and the food and utilities are equally as inexpensive. The transportation system is well coordinated and reasonably priced; the city's nightlife is busy and there are opportunities to meet new people everywhere. The medical facilities are economical — your fellow expats will be able to give you recommendations on where it's best to go. You'll find a huge variety of entertainment, from sightseeing (the famous Pyramid of Chichen-Itza is not far by bus or car) to local sporting facilities. The city is relatively safe; your fellow InterNations members will advise you on the best places to avoid. Overall, Cancún is one of Mexico's highlights and you will soon acclimatize to life there.
