Cancun is the No. 1 top destination with USA traveling in other countries, thanks to low-priced air travels from the States, 14 miles of coasts, and carnival-style nightlife which changes the Z-shaped islet off the Yucatan Peninsula into a 24-hour party scene for college students each and every Spring Break. But in the event that you believe this former Mayan trading city is only a careless boozefest on the beach front, you haven’t experienced the true Cancun. 3 must-see spots for first-timers in Cancun: Sun, Fine sand, and Waves at Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines The beaches of Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines supply the full-spectrum of the Cancun beach scene: Playa Tortugas is an upbeat party beach with calm, tranquil water together with bungalow restaurants/bars underneath the palms; Playa Delfines is truly an escapist beach with white sand for travelers wanting to avoid the crowds (and possibly catch a few waves). Day Trip to the Mayan Ruins Integrated into the downtown area, the plaza ruins of El Ray help remind visitors of the city’s ancient history as a Mayan trading port and give the urban layout a distinctively mythic appearance (and a kitschy cache to bankroll tourist dollars). However, for a more immersive experience, 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 in comparison to Chichen Itza). Coco Bongo It would certainly be a shame to leave Cancun without a peek of the most wild, extravagant nightclub the party city has to offer. Coco Bongo is a temple of excess to ridiculous proportions– a gigantic 1,800-person nightclub along with nightly trapeze acts, rock-star impersonators, a rainbow blitz of wandering spotlights, and thousands of partiers moving to DJ-spun hits on any platform they are able to climb up onto. Isla Mujeres This tiny island off the coast of Cancun is simply a quiet escape from the craziness of the mainland. The palm-shaded oceanfronts are excellent for laying out under the sun 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 produces a distinct experience for vacationers looking for adventure in the form of sunken cenotes– subterranean rivers and lakes that one may access by rappelling into caves. 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, some of the best locations 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 exhibited at the bottom of the sea. Brand-new to diving? Don’t worry. Scuba Cancun can set anyone up with a starter’s diving session and afterwards a museum dive for $80.
