Cancun remains the No. 1 top desired destination regarding USA traveling in foreign countries, with the help of inexpensive airfares from the States, 14 miles of shorelines, and carnival-style nightlife which transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for college students each and every Spring Break. But in case you believe this former Mayan trading city is simply a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see attractions intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The shores of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines supply the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is an upbeat party beach with calm, tranquil water along with bungalow restaurants/bars beneath the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers seeking to escape the crowds (and perhaps catch a couple of waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind vacationers 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 more immersive adventure, take a day trip drive down Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re far less crowded and even closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would undoubtedly be a pity to leave Cancun without having a gander of the most wild, extreme nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and thousands of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on any platform these guys are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This small island off the coast of Cancun is certainly a peaceful getaway from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are perfect for laying out under the sun’s rays following an intimate lunch at one of the island’s eateries, and the blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula sets up a distinct experience for visitors trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes which one may gain access to by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature a lot of offshore dive sites. However assuming that your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest areas to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, created 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. Brand-new to scuba? No problem. Scuba Cancun can set anyone up with a newcomer’s scuba diving session then a museum dive for $80.
