Cancun is still the No. 1 major getaway with regard to United State Of America traveling in other countries, with the help of low-cost flights from the States, 14 miles of shorelines, and carnival-style night life that changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for university students each and every Spring Break. But in the event that you consider this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see attractions for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coastlines of Playa Tortugas along with 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 underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for travelers aiming to avoid the masses (and possibly get a few waves). Excursion 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 provide the urban layout a distinctively mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a more immersive adventure, take a day trip drive into Riviera Maya to the beach front ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re much less crowded and even closer in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would undoubtedly be a shame to leave Cancun without a glimpse of the most wild, amazing nightclub the party city has to feature. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous proportions– a huge 1,800-person nightclub with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on any kind of platform they are able to climb onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny isle off the coast of Cancun is simply a quiet getaway from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are ideal for laying out under the sun’s rays shortly after an intimate meal at one of the island’s eateries, and the azure water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula sets up an one-of-a-kind experience for travelers looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes which you can gain access to by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya hold plenty of offshore dive sites. However assuming that your tank skills are up to par, some of the best spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, created 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 scuba diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun are able to set anyone up with a beginner’s scuba diving course and after that a museum dive for $80.
