Cancun remains the No. 1 main holiday destination with regard to USA vacation overseas, due to low-cost airlines from the States, 14 miles of shorelines, and carnival-style nightlife that 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 consider this former Mayan trading city is just a careless boozefest on the beach front, you haven’t experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see tourist 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 deliver the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyous party beach with calm, tranquil oceans including bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is without a doubt an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers seeking to escape the crowds (and maybe grab a few waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind visitors of the city’s ancient 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 more immersive adventure, get a day trip drive down Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re significantly less crowded and closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a shame to leave Cancun without having a look of the most wild, lavish nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ridiculous proportions– a massive 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 hits on any platform they are able to climb onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny island off the coast of Cancun is definitely a quiet getaway from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are great for laying out in the sun shortly after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s eateries, and the azure water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula sets up an one-of-a-kind experience for visitors trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which one may access by rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya contain a number of offshore dive sites. But assuming that your tank skills are up to par, some of the best spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, built by English 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 scuba? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun can set you up with a newbie’s scuba diving course and after that a museum dive for $80.
