Cancun continues being the No. 1 leading desired destination with regard to U.S. traveling in other countries, thanks to cheap airlines 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 university students each and every single Spring Break. But if you assume this former Mayan trading city is merely a careless boozefest on the beach, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see spots for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The shores of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines deliver the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil oceans together with bungalow restaurants/bars beneath the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for travelers aiming to avoid the crowds (and perhaps catch a couple of waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind people of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctly mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive experience, have 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 in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would undoubtedly be a shame to leave Cancun without having a glimpse of the most wild, lavish nightclub 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 imitators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on any platform they are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny island off the coast of Cancun is a peaceful getaway from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are great for laying out in the sun’s rays following an intimate meal 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 an unique experience for visitors looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes which one may access by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature lots of offshore dive sites. But in the event that your tank skills are up to par, one of the best locations to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, developed by English artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures displayed at the bottom of the ocean. New to diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun can set you up with a newbie’s scuba diving session and then a museum dive for $80.
