Cancun continues being the No. 1 leading place for UNITED STATE travel abroad, due to low-priced airline tickets from the States, 14 miles of shorelines, and carnival-style nightlife which changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for university students every Spring Break. But in the event that you consider this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see destinations for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coasts of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines supply the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil water including bungalow restaurants/bars below the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for travelers aiming to avoid the crowds (and perhaps grab a few waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind tourists of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout an uniquely mythic look and feel (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive adventure, take a day trip drive into Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re much less crowded and closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a pity to leave Cancun without having a look of the most explosive, extreme nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous 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 virtually any platform these guys are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This little isle off the coast of Cancun is definitely a quiet getaway from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are superb for laying out under the sun’s rays shortly after an intimate meal at one of the island’s dining establishments, and the blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula produces an unique experience for visitors searching for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one can access via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya have a lot of offshore dive sites. However in the event that your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest areas to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, developed by English artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures displayed at the bottom of the ocean. New to scuba? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun are able to set you up with a newbie’s scuba diving course and afterwards a museum dive for $80.
