About Cancun

As one of the first planned tourist cities in the world, Cancun is wholly dedicated to the pleasures of a sun and sand vacation. On the Caribbean coast of Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, Cancun boasts fine white sand beaches and warm turquoise water. The Hotel Zone is just what it sounds - - hotels , dining and shopping, geared towards international tourists, cruise ship passengers and all-inclusive vacation resorts. To add a bit of adventure to your vacation, venture out into the city to go on a Jeep safari, visit Mayan ruins, swim with dolphins at an adventure park or explore offshore for a boat trip. While chain restaurants abound, Cancun's dining options have expanded upon the gourmet side featuring Yucatecan cuisine like poc chuc (shredded pork marinated in sour orange juice ) or succulent lobster. For night owls, Cancun has a vibrant nightlife, with a multitude of bars and clubs for all ages. These are especially packed during Cancun's busiest week with the under-25 set: spring break, which can run anywhere from mid-March to mid-April.

Trip Moments

I don't know how to describe the feeling of seeing the Caribbean for the first time. The last stop of a person's trip to Mexico is Cancun. The length of the three-week trip is not too short for me. When I first saw the Caribbean Sea, There is only one thought in my heart: finally the Caribbean... In the past few years, I have climbed to such islands. I know that sometimes the greater the disappointment, the more disappointing I have. When I saw the first sight of the Caribbean, I couldnt believe the color of the sea. The color of the Caribbean was too special. I searched my brain for an adjective of color. I didnt find an appropriate one. It was a jade. The green is mixed with the color of milk blue, which is the most dreamy color sea I have ever seen. When I came back to share with my friends and told them that I saw the most beautiful sea in Cancun, they were so unbelievable that I felt that the photos of these Caribbean seas were not much different from those of other islands, but they did On that day, I saw the most beautiful sea color in Cancun, because I knew that the feeling in memory would not be deceiving. Cancun is located in the northeast corner of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. It is sunny, the sea is clear, and the beach is white and soft. In the Mayan language, Cancun means the earthen jar hanging at the end of the rainbow and is considered a symbol of joy and happiness. There are countless white sand beaches throughout Cancun. You can find your own territory, abandon the troubles of the world, and enjoy your own softest time. I found the most beautiful sea water color at Playa Caracol.
