Cancun continues to be the No. 1 prime getaway regarding UNITED STATE traveling to foreign countries, with the help of low-cost airlines from the States, 14 miles of beaches, and carnival-style night life that 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 believe this former Mayan trading city is just 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, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The beaches of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines offer the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil water together with bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for travelers wanting to get away from the masses (and maybe grab a few 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 give the urban layout a distinctively mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a much more immersive adventure, get 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 even closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would definitely be a shame to leave Cancun without a glimpse of the most explosive, extreme club the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person club with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun hits on any platform they are able to climb onto. Isla Mujeres This little island off the coast of Cancun is a quiet getaway from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are ideal for laying out in the sun’s rays right after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s bistros, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula achieves an unique experience for tourists looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one can access by rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya have a number of offshore dive sites. However in case your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, designed by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures displayed at the bottom of the ocean. Brand-new to diving? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun are able to set you up with a beginner’s diving session and afterwards a museum dive for $80.
