Cancun is the No. 1 main desired destination with regard to AMERICAN vacation to foreign countries, with the help of cheap flights from the States, 14 miles of beachfronts, and carnival-style night life which changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for college students pretty much every Spring Break. But in the event that you imagine this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coasts of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines supply the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil oceans together with bungalow restaurants/bars beneath the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for tourists planning to escape the herds (and maybe catch a few waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind people of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctly mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a more immersive experience, get a day trip drive into Riviera Maya to the beach front ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re much less crowded and closer in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a pity to leave Cancun without having a look of the most explosive, extravagant club the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to ridiculous proportions– a huge 1,800-person nightclub along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun favorites on any kind of platform these guys can climb onto. Isla Mujeres This little island off the coast of Cancun is a quiet escape from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded beaches are great for laying out under the sun after an intimate lunch break 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 builds a distinct experience for tourists searching for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which one can gain access to via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya hold a number of offshore dive sites. But in case your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest locations to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, created by English artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures arranged at the bottom of the ocean. Brand-new to diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can set anyone up with a newbie’s scuba diving session and afterwards a museum dive for $80.
