Cancun continues to be the No. 1 leading location regarding U.S. travel in foreign countries, due to economical flights from the States, 14 miles of beachfronts, and carnival-style night life that transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for college students each and every Spring Break. But if you imagine this former Mayan trading city is only a careless boozefest on the beach, you haven’t 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 coastlines of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines provide the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyous party beach with calm, tranquil oceans along with bungalow restaurants/bars below the palms; Playa Delfines is without a doubt an escapist beach with white sand for tourists wishing to get away from the masses (and perhaps get a few waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind visitors 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). But for a more immersive adventure, have a day trip drive down Riviera Maya to the beach front ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re much less crowded and closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would undoubtedly be a pity to leave Cancun without a peek of the most explosive, extreme nightclub the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to unbelievable proportions– a huge 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers dancing to DJ-spun favorites on any kind of platform these guys can climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This small isle off the coast of Cancun is definitely a peaceful retreat from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are ideal for laying out under the sun following an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s eateries, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula achieves an one-of-a-kind experience for vacationers trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one may access by rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya offer plenty of offshore dive sites. But if your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest areas 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 arranged at the bottom of the ocean. Brand-new to scuba diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can easily set you up with a beginner’s scuba diving course then a museum dive for $80.
