Cancun is perfect for those who seek beautiful paradisiac beaches, plenty of recreational options, history and nightlife. Cancun’s beach clubs range from casual, bohemian alcoves to chic upscale lounge. It is known as the destination with the best infrastructure and hotels in the Caribbean. The Hotel Zone has hundreds of restaurants to choose from. The cuisine is very good with something to offer to every traveller.
What I love most about Cancun, aside from the beaches and the nightlife, are the Mayan ruin sites. Chichen Itza is the most spectacular site in the area. It is located inland about 2 1/2 hours by tour bus from Cancun. It is a day trip that you have to do. The ruin site of Tulum is gorgeous, and is coupled with a visit to one of the areas eco parks, either Xcaret or Xel-Ha. Xel-Ha is a beautiful park where you can relax in hammocks, snorkel with tropical fish in the warm, tranquil waters, float lazily on an innertube throughout the natural waterways and channels of the subterranean waterways, and even swim with dolphins.
