Cancun remains the No. 1 top place with AMERICAN travel overseas, with the help of low-priced 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 each and every single Spring Break. But in the event that you presume this former Mayan trading city is merely a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see attractions intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coastlines of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines offer the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil water along with bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for tourists seeking to avoid the masses (and possibly grab a few waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind travelers of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctly mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a much 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 even closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would certainly be a pity to leave Cancun without a look of the most wild, amazing nightclub the party city has to feature. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ridiculous proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and thousands of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on virtually any platform they are able to climb onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny isle off the coast of Cancun is a peaceful getaway from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are perfect for laying out in the sun’s rays shortly after an intimate lunch at one of the island’s bistros, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula builds an unique experience for travelers searching for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one can gain access to via rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya provide lots of offshore dive sites. However in the event that your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest locations to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, built by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures arranged at the bottom of the sea. Brand-new to scuba diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can easily set anyone up with a newcomer’s scuba diving course and then a museum dive for $80.
