Located on the Yucatán Peninsula, it’s also near Tulum, Playa del Carmen, and Cozumel, which means you’ll have endless activities and attractions to visit!

When you visit Cancún, you have an endless array of lodging options, ranging from Airbnbs to opulent 5-star resorts and everything in-between! In this guide, we’ll be showing you our favorite hotels to book using points.

Other Ways To Earn Marriott Bonvoy Points

Indeed, American Express and Chase points can both be transferred to Marriott Bonvoy, but it’s generally not a good idea to do so unless you can take advantage of a transfer bonus and book an aspirational property immediately after transferring your points.

IHG Rewards

Chase is the issuer of IHG Rewards credit cards, of which there are currently 2 open for new applications. Just remember that these co-branded cards are subject to Chase’s 5/24 rule, so you’ll want to make sure you’ve checked your 5/24 status before applying for these cards.

IHG Rewards uses a dynamic award pricing scheme, which is why you may see different prices on certain dates — the price generally coincides with the hotel’s paid rate.

Other Ways To Earn IHG Rewards Points

IHG Rewards is a 1:1 transfer partner with Chase Ultimate Rewards.

However, we do not recommend transferring your points from Chase due to the limited value you’ll get from your redemption.

There are plenty of ways to earn IHG points through paid stays and IHG credit card spending.

Hilton Honors

Hilton Honors’ points system follows a dynamic award pricing structure, meaning that standard room rewards can be priced with a specific range instead of 1 set value.

American Express is the sole issuer of Hilton credit cards, and there are a total of 4 options open for new applications. You can earn lots of Hilton points through credit card spending — up to 14x points per $1 spent! Check out our favorite Hilton credit cards below:

Other Ways To Earn Hilton Honors Points

Even though it’s easy to amass Hilton points quickly, you can transfer points from Amex to Hilton Honors if you still need a few thousand points, but it’s probably not a good idea to transfer lots of points to Hilton because there are so many other ways to redeem Amex points for incredible value.
