Real Estate in Cancun

Cancún is a coastal city located in the popular vacation destination often referred to as the Mexican Caribbean. Located along the Caribbean Sea, the city of Cancun is in the state of Quintana Roo (keen-tah-nah-ROW) along Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula.

Although popular, Cancun is not the capital city of the state. That title goes to Chetumel, a city in the far south of the state near the Belize border.
