Cancun continues being the No. 1 leading vacation spot with UNITED STATE vacation in other countries, due to low-priced 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 university students each and every Spring Break. But if you assume this former Mayan trading city is just a careless boozefest on the beach front, you haven’t experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see spots intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The shores of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines provide the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil oceans including bungalow restaurants/bars beneath the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers planning to escape the herds (and maybe catch 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 provide the urban layout an uniquely mythic look and feel (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a more immersive adventure, have a day trip drive down Riviera Maya to the beach front ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re significantly less crowded and even closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would definitely be a shame to leave Cancun without having a glimpse of the most wild, amazing club the party city has to feature. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ludicrous proportions– a massive 1,800-person nightclub along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and thousands of partiers moving to DJ-spun hits on any platform these people can climb onto. Isla Mujeres This little island off the coast of Cancun is certainly a quiet getaway from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded beaches are ideal for laying out under the sun’s rays right after an intimate lunch 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 achieves an one-of-a-kind experience for tourists searching for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one can access via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya have lots of offshore dive sites. However assuming that your tank skills are up to par, some of the best locations to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, developed 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 ocean. Brand new to diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can easily set you up with a newbie’s scuba diving lesson and after that a museum dive for $80.
