Cancun remains the No. 1 prime holiday location with U.S.A vacation to foreign countries, with the help of low-cost airfares from the States, 14 miles of beachfronts, and carnival-style night life which changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for university students each and every Spring Break. But in case you consider this former Mayan trading city is only a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Fine 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 festive party beach with calm, tranquil oceans along with bungalow restaurants/bars underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for travelers aiming to avoid the herds (and possibly get a few waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind tourists of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout a distinctly mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a much more immersive experience, take 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 shame to leave Cancun without a gander of the most explosive, lavish nightclub the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to ridiculous proportions– a massive 1,800-person nightclub along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on any kind of platform these people are able to climb onto. Isla Mujeres This small isle off the coast of Cancun is definitely a peaceful retreat from the chaos of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are ideal for laying out in the sun shortly after an intimate lunch at one of the island’s dining establishments, and the blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula achieves an one-of-a-kind experience for tourists 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 lots of offshore dive sites. However in case your tank skills are up to par, one of the best locations 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 displayed at the bottom of the sea. Brand-new to scuba? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun are able to set you up with a newbie’s diving session and afterwards a museum dive for $80.
