New York Highlights
New York is a must-visit destination on everyone’s list. A towering cityscape full of iconic buildings that is infused with beautiful green spaces and awash with people, history, colour and some of the best food you’ll ever eat. It’s difficult to overstate how magical ‘The City that Never Sleeps’ really is, but once you’re here, she’s yours to discover.
The City of Landmarks
New York City is home to striking and often revolutionary architecture in the form of glossy skyscrapers such as the Empire State Building, the Art Deco style of the Chrysler Building and the quirkiness of the Flatiron Building. Its famous landmarks also include contemporary museums, expansive parks and historic monuments, all waiting to be explored.
New York City is renowned worldwide for its iconic shopping opportunities, from the legendary elegance of Fifth Avenue and Macy’s - an 11-story department store in Herald Square - to the scores of retro clothing shops and bustling neighbourhood flea markets. So, in our opinion, you may need another suitcase!
There is a melting pot of different cultures, flavours and styles in New York, which is reflected in its ever-revolving cornucopia of restaurants, bars and cafés in all corners of the city. There are long-standing establishments serving up classic dishes within a familial, community atmosphere, as well as Michelin-starred fine dining spots and pop-up food stands - both packing a punch with equally delicious fare.
New York is abundant with once-in-a-lifetime experiences, whether it’s catching a Broadway show, taking flight in a helicopter ride over the Statue of Liberty or riding a horse and carriage through Central Park. Yet, excitement can be found even in the seemingly routine; hail down a famous yellow taxi, navigate the frenetic subway system or gaze through the shop window at Tiffany & Co. for a truly unforgettable experience.

NEW YORK & CANCUN HOLIDAY FAQS
The best time to visit New York is in the spring (April to June) and fall (September to November) months. The weather forecast will be mild, and moderate tourism levels mean you won’t be spending excessive time in queues for some of the major attractions.
When planning your visit to Cancun, it’s worth bearing in mind that there’s distinctive wet and dry seasons. The dry season months are between November-April, when the weather is warm enough for beach days and watersports.
New York and Cancun are generally in the same time zone. They both observe Eastern Standard Time (EST), but it’s important to note that some areas of Cancun don’t observe Daylight Saving Time (DST) - while New York does. You’ll only be affected by the 1-hour time difference when DST is in effect, in certain regions of Mexico.

Your Cancun multi-centre holiday will begin from JFK and you’ll fly into Cancun International Airport (CUN). The average flight duration is 4 hours 5 minutes.

In Cancun, the hottest months are generally from May to September, with scorching highs between 32°C-37°C. These months fall within the wet season though, so you can expect the occasional tropical downpour.
Food is a huge part of New York twin-centre holidays (just like the portion sizes!) and going out for dinner in New York City is an experience in itself. There’s something to suit every occasion, from rooftop haunts with incredible panoramic views, to low-key independent eateries, and upmarket a la carte spots. And of course, there’s plenty of fast food, too! We’ve shared some go-to areas for enjoying a tasty meal in the city that never sleeps:
Times Square is one of the most iconic commercial hubs in New York City, and there’s no shortage of places to grab a tasty bite. You’ll find a range of restaurants and vibrant eateries, from casual fast-food joints to contemporary dining experiences. Times Square is known for its Broadway-themed restaurants, where you can enjoy a pre-theater taster menu or a post-show feast.
Greenwich Village, known as "The Village" to New Yorkers, is a charming neighbourhood known for an eclectic mix of historic, trendy restaurants. This area is a haven for foodies, with a whole host of mouthwatering culinary delights to sample. From hearty Italian spots, to cosy wholesome cafes, gastropubs, and innovative farm-to-table restaurants, there’s something to cater to everyone.
SoHo, short for "South of Houston Street," is a chic setting, popular for its array of chic dining spots. The scene in SoHo reflects the area's artistic ambience, and you can expect to stumble across some really unique establishments here. You'll discover a combination of stylish cafes, sophisticated bistros, and trendy brunch spots, and once you’ve devoured your meal, move on for a stroll around the nearby art galleries and boutique shops.
Chinatown in Manhattan is a must-visit district for authentic Chinese, Vietnamese, Thai, and Malaysian cuisine. The streets are lined with restaurants and minimalistic dim sum houses, offering traditional dishes like dumplings, roast duck, and noodle soups. It's a fantastic destination for those looking to explore Asian flavours and culture in the heart of the city.
Last, but by no means least, Williamsburg, located in Brooklyn, is known for its forward-thinking culture and innovative eateries. This neighbourhood has undergone a culinary renaissance in recent years, with a focus on local, sustainable ingredients. You'll find a wide range of dining options, from artisanal bakeries, food markets, and festival-style street food trucks.
Central Park is a quintessential feature on any well-rounded New York itinerary! The immense urban park has featured as the backdrop for many epic Hollywood productions, and it’s perfectly located in the heart of Manhattan. Central Park is a sanctuary away from the metropolis of central NY, and it’s the perfect place to start a day of exploring, armed with a freshly brewed coffee.
Similar to Central Park, your visit to New York City would not be complete without a venture up the Empire State Building. If you can conquer your fear of heights, you’ll be able to take in some utterly unrivalled views of the city’s iconic skyline and the urban jungle below. It's particularly magical at sunset or in the evening when the city lights up, and it’s been the setting for many romantic proposals!
Yes. Cancun is known for being family-friendly, despite the common perception of it as being only geared towards revellers. There are plenty of exuberant all-inclusive accommodation choices throughout the resort, adding a touch of convenience for parents of picky eaters!
Many of the popular hotels provide their own schedule for kids entertainment, with regular activities and mini discos to keep little ones on the go. If you are eating out, you won’t struggle to find somewhere with a children’s menu - there’s bound to be an impressive sundae on for afterwards, too! In terms of entertaining kids, there’s no end to the activities on offer here. From snorkelling, to scuba diving, and lots of watersports, the resort is certain to satisfy even the most restless toddlers and grown up pre-teens
If you choose to bypass the peak tourist months and you’re visiting during spring or fall, you’ll want to have plenty of layers to wrap up with. However, if you’ll be there during the summer, t-shirts, shorts, and lightweight clothing will be the best choice. Regardless of the timing of your visit, you’ll definitely need some sturdy shoes to explore in - you can expect your daily step count to surge while you’re here!
In Cancun, breathable, relaxed clothing and swimwear for the beach will be perfect. Stay sun-safe by packing sunglasses and a hat, as the rays can be extremely potent in the dry season. In Mexico City or higher-altitude areas, you’ll be glad to have an extra, light layer or thin jacket for cooler evenings.
