Cancun remains the No. 1 leading vacation spot with regard to UNITED STATE traveling in other countries, with the help of cheap airfares from the States, 14 miles of coasts, and carnival-style nightlife that changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for university students every Spring Break. But in the event that you think this former Mayan trading city is merely a careless boozefest on the beach front, you haven’t experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see spots intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The beaches of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines provide the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a festive party beach with calm, tranquil oceans including bungalow restaurants/bars underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for tourists seeking to get away from the masses (and perhaps grab a couple of waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind visitors of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout a distinctly mythic appearance (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 much less crowded and even closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would certainly be a shame to leave Cancun without a look of the most explosive, extreme club the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to ludicrous proportions– a huge 1,800-person nightclub along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun favorites on virtually any platform they can climb onto. Isla Mujeres This small isle off the coast of Cancun is a quiet getaway from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coastlines are perfect for laying out under the sun’s rays after an intimate meal 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 sets up a distinct experience for tourists searching for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that you can access by rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya provide plenty of offshore dive sites. However in the event that your tank skills are up to par, some of the best locations 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 exhibited at the bottom of the sea. New to diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can set you up with a beginner’s scuba diving session and after that a museum dive for $80.
