Sam Freij Brings the Paradise of Cancún onto Your Screen

Share

Sam Freij was made for the Caribbean. Of course, when he was a young boy he couldn’t have imagined what his future would hold. But now, he’s a world-renowned travel photographer who has made the Caribbean, especially places like Cancún, his personal paradise.

Sam runs an immensely popular travel page on Instagram, but his photos and videos aren’t just for show to get attention. He genuinely loves being in the pristine waters and culturally rich islands of the Caribbean, and he’s opened his world to anyone who wants to come along.

His popular Travel with Sam (@travel_with_sam)  Instagram page was launched in 2016, but it started to gain popularity in March of 2020, gaining traction with Sam Freij  friends and followers from all over the world. Most recently, his page showcases his adventures in Cancún, Mexico.

Why does Sam love Cancún?

“I love the history,” he explains. Cancún was a small Mexican fishing-and-gathering settlement of a few Mayan families until 1970, when, after a three-year study of conditions by the Mexican government in association with private tourism interests, the area was selected as a vacation center.

It’s popularity has exploded ever since.

“There are seven shades of blue waters in Cancún. The beaches are simply a paradise,” Sam explains. 

Cancún is more than just great beaches, however. It’s a food paradise, with world-class tacos, seafood, and more. Unlike other resort destinations, Cancún offers very affordable food prices, meaning you can stretch your budget quite a bit farther there than other parts of the world. Cancún offers an amazing variety of tacos representing the various flavor profiles of regions across Mexico, with no shortage of restaurants to try.

And don’t worry about a winter coat: while you’re enjoying a taco and a margarita by a pristine beach, you can count on amazing weather year round in Cancún’s mild tropical climate.

As Sam’s exquisite travel page continues to gain a following, it is also gaining the attention of major outlets. His page features gorgeously photographed scenes that paint a tapestry of a dream many have but few experience.

Freij’s Instagram platform currently has more than 256,000 followers and just over a thousand posts. Followers get a chance to see a variety of vacation spots, as well as different beaches and food options. 

Travel with Sam has covered dozens of countries, but the most frequently visited destination is Cancun, Mexico. The page often showcases the beautiful resorts and beaches in the area along with the food and drink options that they offer. Many publications in Cancun have also noticed the page leading to some exciting networking opportunities. The page has been featured by Hyatt Aruba and Intercontinental Presidente Cancun.
