Cancun is the No. 1 prime destination with regard to U.S. traveling overseas, due to cheap flights from the States, 14 miles of beachfronts, and carnival-style nightlife which changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for university students each and every single Spring Break. But in the event that you expect this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see attractions for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The beaches of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines provide the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a fun party beach with calm, tranquil oceans along with bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers aiming to escape the crowds (and possibly catch a few waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind vacationers of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout an uniquely mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a much more immersive experience, have a day trip drive into Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re significantly less crowded and closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would definitely be a shame to leave Cancun without a peek of the most explosive, amazing nightclub the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to ridiculous proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on any kind of platform these guys are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This small island off the coast of Cancun is a quiet retreat from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are perfect for laying out under the sun right after an intimate lunch at one of the island’s eateries, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula puts together an one-of-a-kind experience for tourists trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which one may gain access to by rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature plenty of offshore dive sites. But in the event that your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, constructed by English artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures laid out at the bottom of the ocean. New to scuba diving? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun can set you up with a beginner’s diving lesson then a museum dive for $80.
