Cancun remains the No. 1 main holiday location regarding United State Of America vacation overseas, due to low-cost air travels from the States, 14 miles of beachfronts, and carnival-style nightlife that transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for university students every Spring Break. But if you consider this former Mayan trading city is simply a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coastlines of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines deliver the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil oceans including bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for tourists aiming to get away from the herds (and maybe get a couple of waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind visitors of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout a distinctly mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a 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 than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would definitely be a pity to leave Cancun without a glimpse of the most explosive, extreme club the party city has to feature. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to unbelievable proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and thousands of partiers moving to DJ-spun hits on virtually any platform these guys can climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This small island off the coast of Cancun is simply a peaceful retreat from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are excellent for laying out under the sun’s rays following 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 rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula creates an unique experience for vacationers trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that you may gain access to by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature a number of offshore dive sites. But in the event that your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, designed by English artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures exhibited at the bottom of the sea. Brand-new to scuba diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun can easily set anyone up with a newbie’s diving lesson and after that a museum dive for $80.
