Cancun continues to be the No. 1 top vacation spot regarding USA travel in other countries, thanks to affordable air travels from the States, 14 miles of beachfronts, and carnival-style night life which 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 just a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, 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 joyous party beach with calm, tranquil oceans including bungalow restaurants/bars below the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for travelers looking to escape the herds (and perhaps grab a couple of 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 provide the urban layout a distinctively mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, 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 significantly less crowded and even closer in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would undoubtedly be a pity to leave Cancun without a glimpse of the most wild, extravagant nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ludicrous proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on any platform they can climb onto. Isla Mujeres This little isle off the coast of Cancun is a peaceful escape from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are perfect for laying out in the sun following an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s bistros, and the blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula creates an unique experience for visitors trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one may access via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya have a number of offshore dive sites. However in case your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest areas to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, built 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 ocean. New to scuba diving? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun can easily set you up with a starter’s diving course and after that a museum dive for $80.
