This destination is a seaside town in the famous holiday destination known as The Mexican Caribbean, more correctly called the nation of Quintana Roo, on Mexico's Yucatan Cape.
Cancun is a story of two cities. There's the glamourous hotel zone with its popular white-sand beaches, bold party site and revolutionary seafood eateries. Then there's the real city itself, which offers you a sample of native taste at, say, a district taco place or a neighboring, immature beach.
That's what keeps this destination fascinating. Had your load up of raucous discos in the hotel zone? Get away to an urban salsa club. Fed up of relaxing about in the pool in Ciudad Cancun? Merely get on a bus and travel to the turquoise waters of the hotel zone.
Or better than that, travel out and tour more of Quintana Roo state. Just a day tour away from Cancun, the immaculate national park of Isla Contoy gestures with a captivating range of bird and plant types. And up north lies in wait subtle Isla Holbox, where swimming with huge whale sharks has turned into quite a famous passion.
There are some tiny Mayan reminders of the pre-Columbian Maya societies in Cancún. El Rey (Las Ruinas del Rey) is situated in the Hotel Zone. El Meco, a more significant location, is discovered on the shore just outside the city borders on the road north to Punta Sam.
