Cancun Travel Guide

by our Mexico expert Paul Baderman
 
Paul BadermanQuite what the original Mayan inhabitants of the region would have made of today’s tourists is an interesting thought – though they did practice human sacrifice. Although there are some nearby relics of that civilisation, Cancún on Mexico’s Yucatán Peninsula is a thoroughly modern city, constructed in the 1970’s as a vacation resort. With some 4 million visitors a year, the site selection was clearly successful – a terrific climate, gorgeous sea, and a made-for-pleasure infrastructure. Sport-fishing, diving on to the many reefs, sailing in all types of vessel including an observation submarine, and every form of assisted ski-surfing (boat, kite, para, probably fast donkey) plus organised swimming with dolphins, mean that days are spent in, on, or by the water, and nights in the even hotter nightlife or wide range of excellent restaurants.
