Transformed from a Mayan settlement to a holiday resort after a three-year study of the conditions by Mexican government in 1980s, Cancun attracts travellers from across the world with its white sand beaches, marine delights and the Mayan ruins.
Relax under the sun
Cancun’s tropical climate added with the white sand beaches of the Caribbean Sea attracts tourists to bask under the sun with massage and cocktail options to enhance the experience. Located on the northeastern coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, the Hotel Zone and the Cancun City with numerous beaches, palm groves and coral reefs divides the island into two.
Swim with dolphins
Away from the glitz of the Hotel Zone of the Cancun City, a ferry takes you to the Cozumel, one of the largest inhabited islands of the country. Clear warm water, the coral reefs and abundant marine life not only makes Cozumel a hit amongst the scuba-diving enthusiasts but also provides an opportunity to swim with the dolphins, an experience you will never forget.
Downtown is a risk worth taking
Mambo Cafe at Downtown Plaza Hong Kong in Cancun features some of the hottest live bands and DJs playing tropical numbers. The cafe is the number one spot to dance Salsa, Merengue and Bachata. Go there to enjoy with the locals of the place.
Mysterious and ancient Mayan ruins
The local Mayan ruins of the pre-Columbian Mesoamerica in Cancun continues to fascinate travellers. Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Yucatan Maya archaeological sites, is the best restored and favourite among the tourists. The 25 metre tall El Castillo pyramid here is a stone representation of Mayan calendar and a pilgrimage destination during spring and summer.
Indulge in Mexican food
Although local food such as tacos and enchiladas dominate are popular widely in Mexico, the one must visit restaurant in Cancun remains Checandole. With its economic and fixed three course meal, it acts as a paradise for food lovers. You must try pollo en mole poblano (chicken smothered in a handmade chocolate and chilli sauce), a specialty of the restaurant.
