Where are some cheap places to stay in Cancun. I am going to be there for 2 nights (June 21,22), and then again July 13-19ish. I'm a 20 year old female and this is my first time travelling solo.

Hey there

A great to alternative and extremly cheap option for that matter is to stay in downtown Cancun. This is very un-cliche as you are a 10min bus ride from the concentration of resorts (no dramas in that)
I stayed in a family run hostel by the name of the ┬┤Nest┬┤, it can be found on and was comfy and we felt safe in the area.

Hope this helps

Try the one at Yaxilan Avenue behind EL TAPATIO restaurant, it is very centric and very safe, full of nice young travellers with lots of options to enjoy and El tapatio has delicious food for 4/5USD. (Full dinner!)

Enjoy your time!

Dont be afraid! I did the same 22 yrs ago and now I live here and happy as the first day I arrived!!

Good luck!
