Cancun continues to be the No. 1 leading place when it comes to USA travel to foreign countries, with the help of cheap airline tickets from the States, 14 miles of beachfronts, and carnival-style nightlife that changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for college students pretty much every Spring Break. But in case you expect this former Mayan trading city is merely a careless boozefest on the beach, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended 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 fun party beach with calm, tranquil oceans together with bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for tourists wishing to avoid the masses (and possibly grab a couple of waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind visitors of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout an uniquely mythic look and feel (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a much more immersive experience, take a day trip drive into Riviera Maya to the beach front ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re far less crowded and even closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would certainly be a shame to leave Cancun without having a glimpse of the most explosive, lavish club the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to ridiculous proportions– a massive 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun favorites on any kind of platform they can climb onto. Isla Mujeres This small isle off the coast of Cancun is definitely a peaceful getaway from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are excellent for laying out under the sun shortly after an intimate lunch at one of the island’s bistros, and the blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula sets up an unique experience for tourists trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one may access via rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya have plenty of offshore dive sites. However if your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest areas to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, constructed by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures arranged at the bottom of the sea. Brand-new to diving? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun are able to set anyone up with a newbie’s diving lesson and then a museum dive for $80.
