Cancun continues to be the No. 1 top desired destination regarding U.S. traveling in other countries, thanks to low-priced airlines 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 university students pretty much every Spring Break. But in the event that you think this former Mayan trading city is merely a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see attractions intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coastlines of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines provide the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is an upbeat party beach with calm, tranquil water and bungalow restaurants/bars beneath the palms; Playa Delfines is an escapist beach with white sand for tourists aiming to get away from the masses (and maybe get a few waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind travelers of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and provide the urban layout a distinctly mythic look and feel (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a 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 much less crowded and closer in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a shame to leave Cancun without a gander of the most explosive, amazing nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to outrageous proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person club with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers moving to DJ-spun hits on virtually any platform they are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This small island off the coast of Cancun is definitely a quiet getaway from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded beaches are fantastic for laying out in the sun after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s restaurants, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula sets up an unique experience for tourists looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which you can gain access to via rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya provide plenty of offshore dive sites. But in the event that your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, designed by English artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures displayed at the bottom of the ocean. Brand new to scuba diving? Not a problem. Scuba Cancun are able to set anyone up with a starter’s scuba diving session and after that a museum dive for $80.
