Cancun remains the No. 1 major location for U.S. traveling abroad, thanks to cheap 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 pretty much every Spring Break. But in case you imagine this former Mayan trading city is simply a careless boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the real 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 vacationers wishing to avoid the herds (and possibly get a few waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind vacationers of the city’s early 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, have a day trip drive into Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re much less crowded and even closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a shame to leave Cancun without having a look of the most wild, extreme club the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous proportions– a huge 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on any kind of platform these guys are able to climb onto. Isla Mujeres This small island off the coast of Cancun is a quiet escape from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are fantastic for laying out under the sun’s rays after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s bistros, and the blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula creates a distinct experience for travelers searching for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which one can access by rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya contain plenty of offshore dive sites. But if your tank skills are up to par, some of the best locations to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, designed 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 diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can set anyone up with a beginner’s scuba diving lesson and then a museum dive for $80.
