Cancun is the No. 1 main getaway regarding UNITED STATE travel overseas, due to affordable air travels from the States, 14 miles of beachfronts, and carnival-style night life that changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for college students each and every single Spring Break. But if you imagine this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see tourist attractions intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The beaches of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines deliver the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is an upbeat party beach with calm, tranquil oceans along with bungalow restaurants/bars beneath the palms; Playa Delfines is without a doubt an escapist beach with white sand for tourists looking to escape the crowds (and possibly get 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 an uniquely mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive adventure, 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 even closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would definitely be a pity to leave Cancun without a look of the most explosive, extreme club the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ludicrous proportions– a huge 1,800-person nightclub with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on virtually any platform these guys are able to climb onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny isle off the coast of Cancun is certainly a peaceful getaway from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded coastlines are excellent for laying out in the sun’s rays after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s bistros, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula creates a distinct experience for vacationers trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which you may access by rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya provide plenty of offshore dive sites. But assuming that your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, developed by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures laid out at the bottom of the ocean. Brand-new to diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun are able to set you up with a starter’s diving session and then a museum dive for $80.
