Florida & Cancun Holiday FAQs
Florida & Cancun Holiday FAQs
Florida & Cancun Holiday FAQs
The best time for Florida and Cancun multi-centre holidays varies based on your travel preferences. For Florida, spring (March to May) and fall (September to November) offer pleasant weather with lesser crowds. However, summer is peak tourist season despite the heat and humidity.
In Cancun, the period from November to April is ideal as the weather is warm and dry, making it perfect for beach escapes and outdoor explorations. However, this is also the peak tourist season. The months of May and October are less crowded, although they come with higher chances of rain. Ultimately, both destinations promise a blend of exciting and relaxing experiences regardless of the season you choose.
Florida operates on Eastern Time (ET), while Cancun operates on Eastern Standard Time (EST) but does not observe Daylight Saving Time. Therefore, during Daylight Saving Time (typically the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in November), Florida is an hour ahead of Cancun. Outside of Daylight Saving Time, Florida and Cancun are on the same time. It's always a good idea to check the current time difference close to your travel dates to plan your itinerary accordingly.
For a twin-centre holiday encompassing Florida and Cancun, selecting well-connected airports is key for a seamless travel experience. In Florida, Orlando International Airport (MCO) is ideal if you plan to visit the theme parks in Orlando such as Walt Disney World and Universal Studios. While Miami International Airport (MIA) is the preferred choice if you plan on exploring Miami's beaches, nightlife, and nearby attractions like the Florida Keys.
When it’s time to head to Cancun, Cancun International Airport (CUN) is one of the busiest airports in the Caribbean, providing easy access to the beach resorts of Cancun and nearby attractions like the Mayan ruins in Tulum and Chichen Itza.
These airports are well-serviced and offer numerous flight options, making them practical choices for your twin-centre holiday.
Florida multi-centres are known for a diverse culinary scene and numerous restaurants have made their mark by offering hungry visitors a variety of flavours and fun experiences. Serving everything from traditional American fare to exotic International dishes, there’s a bite for everybody.
Situated in the emerging Brickell neighbourhood, Komodo is a chic restaurant and lounge renowned for its exquisite Southeast Asian dishes, with a unique culinary experience with a lively Miami vibe. Similarly, featured on the New York Times list of America's Best Restaurants 2023, Smoke & Dough is another gem in Miami's culinary scene - opened in early 2022, it has quickly gained recognition (once you try it, you’ll see why).
Besides these, there are many other restaurants that have been recognised for their exceptional offerings. For instance, Yelp’s Top 100 Florida Restaurants 2023 list showcases a variety of places known for their big flavours ranging from Thai street food and beefy empanadas to spicy shakshuka and vegan BBQ. Additionally, Florida is home to a collection of iconic restaurants that are famous for being crowd favourites, representing the local flavours and offering a rich history of the state's culinary tradition.

Any space aficionados out there should take time to explore the enlightening wonders of the Kennedy Space Center. And to cap off your Florida experience, delve into the renowned nightlife of cities like Miami and uncover the historic charm of St. Augustine's streets.
You don’t have to be a history buff to want to explore the ancient ruins of Chichen Itza or Tulum and delve into Mexico's fascinating past on your Cancun multi-centres. These iconic sites aren’t too far from the sand either, so beach-lovers can wander pristine stretches like Playa Delfines and Playa Tortugas - perfect for sunbathing, swimming, and watersports.
For a unique underwater experience, snorkel or scuba dive in the Great Mayan Reef or check out the thought-provoking underwater museum, Museo Subacuático de Arte. Adrenaline-junkies can venture into the eco-archaeological park Xcaret for an adventure, while a boat trip to Isla Mujeres for relaxed beach vibes is another way to soak up the scenery. Of course, a visit to the local markets for some authentic Mexican crafts and foods is always a must.
