More Cheap Options:


A Budget hotel is not a hostel.  You don't have to share a room, or a bathroom.  It is a hotel in every sense of the word.  Some budget hotels do have hostel facilities on-site, but you can have all the amenities you'd get from a low-to-mid priced hotel back home, and in many cases a lot more.  If you're looking to experience Cancun without blowing a lot of money on a hotel, then these are excellent choices.
