Cancun continues being the No. 1 leading holiday location for U.S.A vacation to foreign countries, with the help of economical air travels from the States, 14 miles of coastlines, and carnival-style nightlife that 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 case you presume this former Mayan trading city is simply a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see destinations for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The shores of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines deliver the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyous party beach with calm, tranquil oceans together with bungalow restaurants/bars below the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for tourists aiming to get away from the masses (and maybe grab a few waves). Day Trip 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 provide the urban layout a distinctively mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a much 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 far 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 wild, lavish 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 hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on virtually any platform they can climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny island off the coast of Cancun is a quiet escape from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coastlines are great for laying out under the sun right after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s restaurants, and the azure water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula produces a distinct experience for visitors trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that you may access via rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya contain lots 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, constructed 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 sea. New to diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun are able to set anyone up with a beginner’s diving session and after that a museum dive for $80.
