Cancun continues to be the No. 1 major desired destination when it comes to United State Of America traveling in foreign countries, with the help of low-priced air travels 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 single Spring Break. But in case you imagine this former Mayan trading city is only a careless boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see attractions for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The shores of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines supply the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a festive party beach with calm, tranquil oceans along with bungalow restaurants/bars below the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers wishing to get away from the herds (and perhaps get a couple of 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 an uniquely mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a much more immersive adventure, get a day trip drive down Riviera Maya to the beach front ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re far less crowded and even closer in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a shame to leave Cancun without a glimpse of the most wild, amazing club the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous proportions– a huge 1,800-person club with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun hits on virtually any platform these guys can climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This little island off the coast of Cancun is certainly a peaceful getaway from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are excellent for laying out in the sun’s rays right after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s restaurants, and the azure water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula builds a distinct experience for vacationers trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which you can access by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya hold a lot of offshore dive sites. However in case your tank skills are up to par, some of the best areas to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, constructed by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures laid out at the bottom of the sea. Brand new to scuba? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun are able to set anyone up with a newbie’s diving lesson then a museum dive for $80.
