Cancun continues to be the No. 1 major holiday destination regarding USA travel in foreign countries, thanks to low-priced air travels from the States, 14 miles of coasts, and carnival-style night life that changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for college students each and every single Spring Break. But in the event that you imagine this former Mayan trading city is only a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see spots for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The beaches 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 and bungalow restaurants/bars below the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for tourists wishing to get away from the crowds (and possibly get a couple of waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind tourists of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout an uniquely mythic appearance (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 significantly less crowded and closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would definitely be a shame to leave Cancun without a glimpse of the most wild, extravagant nightclub the party city has to feature. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to outrageous proportions– a massive 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on any platform these guys can climb onto. Isla Mujeres This little isle off the coast of Cancun is definitely a quiet retreat from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are superb for laying out under the sun’s rays following an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s eateries, and the blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula builds an one-of-a-kind experience for travelers trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which one may access via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya hold lots of offshore dive sites. But in case your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest spots 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 diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun can set you up with a starter’s scuba diving session and after that a museum dive for $80.
