Cancun remains the No. 1 major place when it comes to United State Of America travel in foreign countries, thanks to cheap airlines from the States, 14 miles of coasts, and carnival-style night life that transforms the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula in to a 24-hour party scene for college students pretty much every Spring Break. But in case you presume this former Mayan trading city is just a sloppy boozefest on the beach, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see attractions for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The shores of Playa Tortugas along with Playa Delfines offer the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is an upbeat party beach with calm, tranquil oceans along with bungalow restaurants/bars under the palms; Playa Delfines is simply an escapist beach with white sand for tourists hoping to escape the herds (and perhaps get a few waves). Excursion to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray remind people of the city’s early history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctively mythic look (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). But for a much more immersive experience, take a day trip drive down Riviera Maya to the beachfront ruins of Tulum and the jungle temples of Coba (they’re much less crowded and even closer in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would be a pity to leave Cancun without having a glimpse of the most explosive, extravagant club the party city has to give. Coco Bongo is a temple of extravagance to ridiculous proportions– a massive 1,800-person club along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star imitators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and hundreds of partiers dancing to DJ-spun favorites on virtually any platform these guys can climb onto. Isla Mujeres This small island off the coast of Cancun is certainly a peaceful getaway from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded beaches are ideal for laying out under the sun after an intimate lunch break at one of the island’s bistros, and the glowing blue water seems made for an afternoon swim. Dipping Into the Cenotes The rainforest of the Yucatan peninsula creates an unique experience for vacationers looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that you may access via rappelling into caves. Underwater Museum of Art Sure, Cancun and the Riviera Maya provide a number of offshore dive sites. However assuming that your tank skills are up to par, one of the coolest areas to scuba dive is the Underwater Museum of Art, developed by English 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 diving? No problem. Scuba Cancun can set anyone up with a newbie’s scuba diving course then a museum dive for $80.
