Cancun remains the No. 1 major getaway regarding AMERICAN vacation in foreign countries, due to cheap air travels from the States, 14 miles of coastlines, and carnival-style nightlife which transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for university students pretty much every Spring Break. But in the event that you think this former Mayan trading city is only a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see tourist attractions intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coasts of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines offer the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a fun party beach with calm, tranquil oceans along with bungalow restaurants/bars underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for tourists looking to get away from the masses (and possibly grab a couple of 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 ancient history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctly mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a more immersive experience, have a day trip drive into Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re far less crowded and closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a shame to leave Cancun without having a gander of the most wild, extravagant club the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to outrageous proportions– a huge 1,800-person nightclub along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on any kind of platform they can climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny isle off the coast of Cancun is simply a peaceful getaway from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded beaches are great for laying out under the sun following an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s eateries, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula produces an unique experience for visitors trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which one may gain access to by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya offer lots of offshore dive sites. However in the event that your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest locations 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 displayed at the bottom of the ocean. Brand-new to diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can easily set anyone up with a newcomer’s scuba diving course then a museum dive for $80.
