Let’s sing a song For Hazey Jane , She’s back again in my mind. If songs were lines In a conversation The situation would be fine.
Cancun remains the No. 1 major destination regarding USA travel overseas, thanks to economical airfares from the States, 14 miles of coastlines, and carnival-style nightlife that changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for college students every Spring Break. But in case you presume this former Mayan trading city is only a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you haven’t experienced the real 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 along with Playa Delfines offer the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is an upbeat party beach with calm, tranquil water along with bungalow restaurants/bars underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for tourists wishing 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 help remind vacationers of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctly mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive adventure, take a day trip drive down 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 be a shame to leave Cancun without having a glimpse of the most explosive, extreme nightclub the party city has to feature. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ludicrous proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and thousands of partiers moving to DJ-spun favorites on any kind of platform they are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This little isle off the coast of Cancun is definitely a peaceful retreat from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coastlines are ideal for laying out under the sun’s rays right after an intimate lunch at one of the island’s bistros, and the glowing blue 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 which you may access by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature plenty of offshore dive sites. However if your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, developed by English 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 diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun can easily set you up with a starter’s scuba diving session and after that a museum dive for $80.
