The hotel also offers convenient access to Cancun International Airport, just 20 minutes away.

Culinary Experiences

Wander Rooftop Bar: With panoramic views of Nichupté Bay and the Caribbean Sea, the rooftop sanctuary, Wander, features an outdoor pool, a shallow chaise lounge soaking pool and a variety of activities, including rotating art exhibits and live music performances. Guests can spend the day relaxing on hammock swings with a refreshing cocktail from the poolside bar or spend an intimate evening lounging by the fire pits on the 9,500-square-foot rooftop.

Azulinda Café and Bar: As the hotel’s lively epicenter, Azulinda offers a dynamic menu inspired by Mexican gastronomy and culture. Connected directly to La Isla shopping mall, the eatery is reminiscent of a local market with regional wines and beers as well as authentic dishes, including chiltepin aguachile, made-to-order tacos and Mayan cuisine’s sikil pak bowl. Travelers can dine in the eatery’s eclectic indoor seating area or lounge on the outdoor terrace overlooking the canal.

Canopy Central: A vibrant gathering area for guests and locals, Canopy Central is centered around a granite bar and surrounded by communal dining tables, sofas and chairs. Guests can indulge in daily complimentary evening tastings of local beer, wine and much more.

Locally Inspired Design

Inspired by the neighborhood’s vibrant spirit, Canopy by Hilton Cancun La Isla’s just-right rooms are adorned with artwork curated by local muralists. Guests will notice a mural sits prominently above the Canopy Central bar, layering paint colors and line work over the angular concrete blocks. The piece reflects a common screening feature in Mexican architectural vernacular expressed with a modern edge. Themes of the mural relate to the nature of Quintana Roo.


Canopy by Hilton Cancun La Isla also offers a complimentary 24-hour oceanfront fitness studio and Transfer Lounge, a comfortable space in which guests can store personal items and freshen up for business or adventure if they are arriving early or departing late.

Meetings and Events

With more than 14,000 square feet of event space, Canopy by Hilton Cancun La Isla boasts three meeting rooms ideal for intimate gatherings, featuring residential-style furniture, an outdoor terrace situated on the Mezzanine level and flexible space for cocktails and events at Wander Rooftop. Modern business travelers will also have access to a practical co-working space overlooking the Nichupté Bay.
