Mexico-3130 – Comalcalco
Cancun is the No. 1 main holiday destination regarding United State Of America travel overseas, thanks to low-priced airlines from the States, 14 miles of beaches, and carnival-style nightlife that transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for college students pretty much every Spring Break. But in the event that you believe this former Mayan trading city is simply a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see destinations for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, 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 a joyous party beach with calm, tranquil oceans including bungalow restaurants/bars below the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers planning to avoid the herds (and perhaps get a couple of waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind tourists of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout an uniquely mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive experience, have 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 closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would undoubtedly be a shame to leave Cancun without a peek of the most explosive, extreme nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous proportions– a huge 1,800-person nightclub along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of roving spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun favorites on any platform these guys are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This small island off the coast of Cancun is simply a peaceful getaway from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are fantastic for laying out under the sun’s rays after 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 puts together an one-of-a-kind experience for vacationers looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one may access via rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya provide plenty of offshore dive sites. However assuming that your tank skills are up to par, some of the coolest areas 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? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun can easily set anyone up with a newcomer’s diving course and then a museum dive for $80.
