Cancun sits in Mexico’s easternmost state of Quintana Roo. Cancun was created in an attempt to duplicate the success of Acapulco. To say Cancun has succeeded would be an understatement. Not only has Cancun surpassed Acapulco’s popularity; it has become the most visited resort destination in the country.
Cancun’s location on the Yucatan peninsula offers visitors the opportunity to partake of incredibly fresh seafood. From delicate shrimp to rich and decadent lobster, seafood is highlighted on menus throughout the city. Restaurants throughout Cancun routinely enhance fish and seafood with bold and spicy Mexican flavors, resulting in a cuisine unique to the Yucatan region. Enjoying a seafood dinner while overlooking the beautiful blue Caribbean ocean is an absolute must while visiting Cancun.
While resting up for your next amazing meal, why not relax on one of Cancun’s dazzling beaches. Cancun’s beaches seduce tourists with powdery white sand and brilliant turquoise water. While Cancun’s more prominent stretches of beach are often crowded with sun-worshipers, they are well suited to afternoon strolls as the sand is composed of microscopic plankton fossils called disco-aster which aid greatly in diffusing heat. Numerous beach activities are available throughout Cancun’s resort areas, such as volleyball, snorkeling, and parasailing. Cruising Cancun’s Caribbean waters on wave runners is an extremely popular activity.
