Cancun remains the No. 1 major vacation spot with USA traveling in other countries, thanks to cheap airfares from the States, 14 miles of coasts, and carnival-style night life which transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for university students each and every Spring Break. But in case you imagine this former Mayan trading city is only a careless boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coastlines of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines supply the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyous party beach with calm, tranquil water and bungalow restaurants/bars below the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for tourists wishing to escape the masses (and maybe catch a few waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind tourists of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctively mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive adventure, get 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 undoubtedly be a shame to leave Cancun without a peek of the most explosive, lavish nightclub the party city has to feature. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ludicrous proportions– a huge 1,800-person club with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and hundreds of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on any kind of platform these guys are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny island off the coast of Cancun is definitely a quiet retreat from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are superb for laying out in the sun after an intimate lunch at one of the island’s bistros, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula builds a distinct experience for vacationers trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that you can gain access to via rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature a lot of offshore dive sites. However in the event that your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest 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 laid out at the bottom of the sea. New to diving? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun can set you up with a beginner’s diving session then a museum dive for $80.
