Culture

Cancun’s lifestyle is more calmed and relaxed than in the United Sttes or Canada. You will find that in some towns around Cancun, taking naps or breaks around noon is a tradition that remains alive, so some auto service stores are closed between 1:00pm and 4:00pm. A lot of stores  are open without interruption in the hotel area. In the restaurants it is normal to remain at the table after the meal just to chat, so it is rude to give the check before it is requested. We suggest you ask for your check so you can leave your table whenever you want.
