Cancun is the most popular destination In Mexico when it comes to resorts, turquoise waters, and lots of side activities. This destination provides the best of two worlds: Mexico and the Caribbean. For visitors who travel to other destinations in the Caribbean, Cancun offers a mixture of cultural, natural, and man-made attractions that are unparalleled elsewhere. Cancun formerly was part of the ancient Mayan civilization and, to this day, is considered to be the gateway into the Mayan world. There are Mayan ritual sites and temples literally everywhere you go. Some are easily accessible, while others have been smothered by lush jungles.
Cancun is located on Mexico’s southeast coast in Quintana Roo state in the Yucatan Peninsula, on what was formerly a long forest strip with beaches on either side.
The area is dotted with spectacular beaches and lagoons, as well as incredible natural beauty. The history of Cancun as a tourist destination only dates back to 1970. That is when the government of Mexico selected the area for development due to the nearby coral reef, clear waters, gorgeous beaches and great weather of the city. Currently, Cancun is one of Mexico’s largest resort areas.
Famous Mexican hospitality combined with crystal clear turquoise waters and white sandy beaches makes it a unique place unlike any other. Its entertainment centers, shopping malls, restaurants, and hotels offer the most exceptional service and quality in the entire world as well as the Caribbean.
