Cancun continues to be the No. 1 top holiday destination for AMERICAN travel overseas, thanks to cheap airfares from the States, 14 miles of shorelines, 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 if you imagine this former Mayan trading city is simply a sloppy boozefest on the beach front, you have not experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see tourist attractions for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coasts of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines deliver the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a fun party beach with calm, tranquil water together with bungalow restaurants/bars beneath the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers wanting to escape the herds (and perhaps grab a few waves). Day Trip 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 give the urban layout an uniquely mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive experience, get a day trip drive down Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re far less crowded and closer than Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would definitely be a pity to leave Cancun without a peek of the most explosive, extreme club the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous proportions– a massive 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of wandering 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 tiny island off the coast of Cancun is simply a peaceful getaway from the madness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are fantastic for laying out in the sun’s rays shortly after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s eateries, and the blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula produces a distinct experience for tourists trying to find adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes in which one can access by rappelling into caverns. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya feature a lot of offshore dive sites. However in case your tank skills are up to par, one 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 arranged at the bottom of the sea. New to diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can easily set anyone up with a beginner’s diving session and afterwards a museum dive for $80.
