There's no denying that Cancun is infamous for skeezy Spring Break partys. The town does have quite the party vibe but that doesn't mean you have to partake if visiting. If you get into one of the fancier resorts on the beach, it wont have the vibe you are trying to avoid. These big resorts often section off the beach and allow just hotel guests to stay there. There are also so many water sport options that if you keep yourself busy during the day, you'll be well on your way to sleeping before the night's festivities begin. I will warn you though, thousands of people flock to Cancun each month. So if you're looking for a quiet beach vacation, try a different town.
