Cancun continues being the No. 1 leading spot when it comes to U.S. vacation in other countries, thanks to low-cost flights from the States, 14 miles of coastlines, and carnival-style nightlife that transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for college students each and every Spring Break. But in the event that you think this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The beaches of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines provide the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a fun party beach with calm, tranquil water including bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers hoping to avoid the crowds (and maybe catch a few waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind people of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout a distinctively mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a much more immersive experience, get 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 closer compared to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would definitely be a shame to leave Cancun without having a peek of the most wild, amazing club the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ridiculous proportions– a massive 1,800-person club with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and hundreds of partiers dancing to DJ-spun favorites on any kind of platform they are able to climb onto. Isla Mujeres This little island off the coast of Cancun is definitely a peaceful escape from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded beaches are great for laying out under the sun’s rays following an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s restaurants, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula puts together an one-of-a-kind experience for vacationers trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which you may gain access to via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature lots of offshore dive sites. However in case your tank skills are up to par, some of the best 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 exhibited at the bottom of the sea. New to scuba diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun are able to set anyone up with a beginner’s diving session then a museum dive for $80.
