Cancun remains the No. 1 major destination with U.S.A travel overseas, with the help of economical airline tickets from the States, 14 miles of coasts, and carnival-style night life which transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for college students each and every Spring Break. But in case you presume this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see spots for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The shores of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines offer the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is an upbeat party beach with calm, tranquil oceans and bungalow restaurants/bars underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for tourists looking to get away from the crowds (and maybe get a couple of waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind vacationers of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout an uniquely mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a more immersive adventure, take a day trip drive down Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re much less crowded and closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a pity to leave Cancun without a glimpse of the most explosive, amazing nightclub the party city has to feature. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to unbelievable proportions– a massive 1,800-person nightclub along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on any platform these people are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny island off the coast of Cancun is a quiet escape from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are excellent for laying out under the sun’s rays after an intimate lunch at one of the island’s restaurants, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula achieves a distinct experience for visitors trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes which you may access by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya have a lot of offshore dive sites. But assuming that your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, developed by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures arranged at the bottom of the ocean. Brand new to scuba diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can easily set anyone up with a beginner’s scuba diving session then a museum dive for $80.
