Why Choose Us?

Six Reasons Why We Are The Best


We can develop a custom system of normal proportions in a couple of weeks from start to a working mockup.


We have user-centric UI designs, REST API controlled database access, respecting 'best coding standards' while writing code, employ short update cycles and have a general desire to get better every day.


Building and operating high traffic e-commerce systems for 20 years gives us a hint of credibility. We have seen the raise and fall of Compuserve, AOL and Yahoo. In short, we consider ourselves Internet veterans. :-)


These days it is totally normal, even mandatory, to be paranoid to the bones. Server access is VPN controlled and applications employ two-factor authentication. Regarding websites, the best defense is a staged recovery strategy with distributed services.


Our hosting infrastructure lives right on top of the Internet backbone in Dallas, New York and New Jersey. The CDN reports 99.999% uptime. Servers are 1-16 core unix machines with solid state hard drives, automated updates and 24/7 monitoring.


An old saying goes: 'Choose between good, cheap and easy and pick two.' Onvos gives you all three! High grade cloud technology, super easy to operate at prices way below rates of the competition.

Cancún Online

Some Things You Should Know About Us

Cancún Online is home to a group of dedicated programmers, artists and marketing specialists. We create advanced, distributed technologies for our customer's projects and for our internal needs.

Information About Our Past

Cancún Online is a Mexican Corporation formed in 1995 to create integrated software solutions and web design applications for the tourism industry. A then hatching technology and e-commerce concept lead Cancún Online to promote a specific tourism destination and tourism related services and become the pioneer in the market. We rapidly became the standard of comparison and a reference point in the industry by setting the standard in web trends in leading Caribbean and Latin American Resort destinations.


From our beginnings

  • 1995 - Cancun.com

    Cancun.com, our flagship product, rapidly evolved into the largest privately owned tourism services portal. When the original site was launched in 1995, we generated 500 visitors a day. By 2004 it was receiving between 15 to 20 thousand unique visitors a day, generating 500,000 visitors per month.

  • 1998 - Hotelzone.com

    Hotelzone.com, our hugely successful reservation booking engine for hotels & resorts, tours and attractions and transportation, was powered by CORE®, our own technology, completely developed in house.

  • 2005 - Onvos.com

    Always innovative, in 2005 we created one of the first video operating systems online; ONVOS™. The Onvos Platform is a distributed environment comprised of several separate components with different functions:

    • Player
    • Backend
    • Database
    • Compressor
    • Streaming Server
    • CDN distribution

    Since then we have improved our tools and services to industrial scale and now can serve hundreds of thousands of simultaneous video requests without any perceivable slowdowns.

  • 2010 - Televisa Puebla

    Televisa Puebla was the first Televisa affiliate to embrace the new technology. It was hailed as a 'Success Story'. They started with 1,300 visitors daily. A few months later they went to 7,000 daily and their bounce rate dropped from 65% to 12.45%! Not bad for a local!

  • 2013 - Onvos Bonfire

    The Bonfire system is spectacularly visual. The platform edits, publishes and distributes digital multimedia content, putting at your disposal, within a single platform, the means to merge all existing digital forms of communication on the web. Manage audio, video, images, animated gifs, text, downloadable files and live streaming, with the highest possible quality.

  • 2014 - Onvos LiveBurst

    Experience freedom of publication for Video On Demand and Live Streaming on the Internet with a clear monetization strategy. We have a simple, affordable solution. Display on any device, any operating system, anywhere; Video on demand, Live broadcasting, Analytics and much more.
    We are certified compliant with all industry standards including IMA, Vast and VPaid.

  • 2015 - Excelsior

    Inventmx is the largest community of sites in Mexico, assembling under one-roof major communication companies with similar profiles on the Internet. One such company is Grupo Imagen, whose flagship is Excélsior TV. We were contracted to develop a solution to detect and replace, on the fly, hundreds of thousands of videos from other repositories, using Javascripts and API's and place them on our Player.

  • 2017 - Goodbye Internet,

    We are choosing to retire from the internet.

    All Domains, CDN connected video systems, IP and Trademarks, and even our 21 year old company Cancun Online S.A. de C.V. are for sale.
    We are Karla and Bernhard, and we have put our lifeblood into the Internet. Going back to 1996, we started by trying to convince prospective clients to advertise with us on our website cancun.com; we had a Dell Lattitude laptop, which was a novelty in those days! and we used Netscape 1.4 to explore the "wild west", the beginning.
    We are now at the end of 2017 and the Internet is a totally different beast.
