Cancun remains the No. 1 top location when it comes to U.S. vacation overseas, thanks to affordable airfares from the States, 14 miles of coastlines, and carnival-style nightlife which changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for university students each and every Spring Break. But if you assume this former Mayan trading city is merely a careless boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the real Cancun. 3 must-see destinations intended for first-timers in Cancun: Sunshine, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The coastlines of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines deliver the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is a joyful party beach with calm, tranquil oceans including bungalow restaurants/bars underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is without a doubt an escapist beach with white sand for vacationers wishing to avoid the crowds (and maybe catch a couple of waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind people of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout an uniquely mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a much more immersive adventure, take a day trip drive into 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 gander of the most wild, extreme nightclub the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to outrageous proportions– a huge 1,800-person club with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and thousands of partiers dancing to DJ-spun hits on any platform these guys are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This small island off the coast of Cancun is definitely a peaceful retreat from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded coasts are fantastic for laying out in the sun’s rays following an intimate lunch at one of the island’s dining establishments, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rain forest of the Yucatan peninsula achieves an one-of-a-kind experience for visitors searching for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one may gain access to via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya have a number of offshore dive sites. However in the event that your tank skills are up to par, one of the best spots to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, created by British artist Jason de Caires Taylor, which, true to its name, is an underwater museum of sculptures exhibited at the bottom of the sea. Brand new to scuba diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun are able to set you up with a newcomer’s diving session and after that a museum dive for $80.
