Cancun continues being the No. 1 major spot regarding United State Of America traveling overseas, due to inexpensive air travels from the States, 14 miles of coasts, 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 assume this former Mayan trading city is only a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you have not experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see spots for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The shores of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines offer the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil oceans together with bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for travelers aiming to get away from the crowds (and maybe get a few waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind tourists of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout an uniquely mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a much more immersive adventure, take 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 be a pity to leave Cancun without having a peek of the most wild, lavish club the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to unbelievable proportions– a huge 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on any kind of platform these people can climb onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny isle off the coast of Cancun is a quiet getaway from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coastlines are superb for laying out under the sun right after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s bistros, and the azure water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula produces a distinct experience for vacationers looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that you may access via rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya provide a lot of offshore dive sites. However if your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, constructed 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 diving? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun can easily set you up with a newbie’s diving session then a museum dive for $80.
