Cancun is one of Mexico’s prime destinations for your South vacation: plenty of blue skies in a Mexican setting with all the modern comfort of a North America. The old city of Cancun is located on the main land while the vacation part of Cancun can be found on the island off the Northeastern tip of the Yucatan peninsula with all the luxury hotels lined up on an L-shaped sand strip of 22.5 kilometers long built on corral reefs and connected to the main land by a small bridge over a calm lagoon. To get away from the frantic life of modern Cancun, you can explore, in the nearby tropical forests, the mysterious past of the Mayan civilization by visiting the ruins of Chichen Itza, Coba and Tulum. A dream come through for beach lovers: sunbathing on some of the Caribbean’s most beautiful beaches, beaches of white fine sand that will cool down your feet set on the warm crystal-clear blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. During their vacation, bird lovers may very well identify 7 different herons and 4 types of egret, all indigenous to the Cancun region. And divers will just love exploring this heavenly underwater setting. As you can see, Cancun will satisfy every vacationer, from the most active to the more meditative ones. Year long you can find several all-inclusive vacation packages but always keep watch for discount and last minute deals…
