Cancun is still the No. 1 top spot with UNITED STATE travel abroad, with the help of low-cost airfares from the States, 14 miles of shorelines, and carnival-style night life which transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for college students each and every single Spring Break. But in the event that you think this former Mayan trading city is merely a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you haven’t experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see attractions intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The beaches of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines deliver the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is an upbeat party beach with calm, tranquil water along with bungalow restaurants/bars underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for tourists planning to get away from the herds (and possibly catch a couple of waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind people of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctly mythic look and feel (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a more immersive adventure, have 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 certainly be a pity to leave Cancun without having a peek of the most wild, extreme nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ludicrous proportions– a huge 1,800-person nightclub with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, 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 small isle off the coast of Cancun is definitely a peaceful escape from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coastlines are great for laying out under the sun’s rays 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 rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula creates a distinct experience for vacationers searching for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one may gain access to by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya contain plenty of offshore dive sites. But if your tank skills are up to par, some of the best areas 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 arranged at the bottom of the ocean. Brand-new to diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can set you up with a newbie’s scuba diving course then a museum dive for $80.
