Cancun is the No. 1 main destination for USA travel in other countries, thanks to economical air travels from the States, 14 miles of coasts, and carnival-style nightlife that transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for college students every Spring Break. But if you consider this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coastlines of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines offer the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a festive party beach with calm, tranquil water and bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for tourists wishing to avoid the crowds (and perhaps catch a few waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind travelers of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout an uniquely mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive experience, 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 closer in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would certainly be a pity to leave Cancun without having a look of the most wild, extravagant nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to unbelievable proportions– a massive 1,800-person club with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on any platform these people can climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny isle off the coast of Cancun is a peaceful retreat from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are perfect for laying out under the sun shortly 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 rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula puts together an one-of-a-kind experience for travelers looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which one can gain access to via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature lots of offshore dive sites. But if your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest areas to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, created by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures laid out at the bottom of the ocean. New to scuba diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun are able to set anyone up with a beginner’s diving session and after that a museum dive for $80.
