InterNations — A Community for American Expats in Cancún

Hello to all Americans in Cancún! Are you interested in getting to know fellow expats in Cancún? Looking for advice from other Americans, e.g. wondering if there are any bars in Cancún which will be showing your favorite baseball or American football team’s upcoming match or where to go in town for st■ turkey?

There’s no doubt about it: Cancún has plenty of things to keep you busy. The popular tourist destination is a tropical and exotic city known for its white sandy beaches, almost-perfect weather, inviting bright blue waters, and much more! With the bus services, navigating your way around the city from one place to the next is simple. This also means that if you don’t want to live among the hustle and bustle of the center, you can enjoy a quieter life in supermanzana 2 or 4, for example, which are not too far away from Cancún’s center.

Although Cancún has lots to offer, you might be wondering where and how you can meet other Americans in the city. Luckily, InterNations is here to make this easier for you! You’re warmly invited to join the InterNations community. Within our international network in Cancún, there’s a vibrant circle of American expats from all regions of USA, including New York City, Los Angeles, and beyond.

    You would think Cancun is simply a paradise - not so much for an isolated expat. I was happy to meet my two best friends through InterNations.
