Cancun Enviable Visit

Cancun (Mayan: kaan kun 'nest of snakes')?, Is a city of international tourism development certified by the World Turismo.2 Located on the northeast coast of Quintana Roo in Eastern Mexico to more than 1,700 km from Mexico City, the Project began operations in 1974 as Integrally Planned Center, a pioneer of FONATUR (National Fund for Tourism Development), formerly known as INFRATUR. In a few years, had a remarkable transformation since being a fisherman's island surrounded by virgin forest and unknown shores, today is along with Acapulco's most renowned Mexican resort in the world.

If we start at the Isla Cancun, hotel zone par excellence, you can see that there are some beach areas that have been closed to the public and are meant for hotels, so that access to them is only possible if you are staying at the hotel in question. Check out the Cancun travel deals you can find in our section on travel and vacation deals, sure to find what you are looking to organize a complete trip to Cancun saving.

Making a list of the best beaches in Cancun , let's start with the north of Cancun , where the beaches are quite calm , extending from Isla Cancun ( hotel zone ) to Punta Cancun , opposite Isla Mujeres ( you can be guided by the Cancun map located at the bottom of
this page) . Here you can find :

Pearls : One of the most popular beaches of Cancun, perfect for swimming and develop beach shore activities . It has everything you can ask for a beach to relax and sunbathe : Restaurants in the sand volleyball courts , ...
Linda Beach : This beach has its own pier from where boats leave for Isla Mujeres.
Playa Langosta : Perfect beach for lovers of water sports ( surfing, diving, ... ) . It has bars and restaurants and many services .
Turtle Beach : One of the most famous beaches of Cancun. It is characterized by its waters are shallow . It can also many water sports , especially free diving . From here you can catch a boat to Isla Mujeres .
Playa Caracol : One of the beaches perfect for surfing due to its towering waves. This beach is attached to the Cancun Island .
Punta Cancun is one of the beaches perfect for snorkeling , because its waters are especially quiet and funds are excellent.

Aside from the beaches of Cancun mainland Isla Mujeres deserves special consideration . It is an island off the coast of Cancun ( see map at the end of this page ) with numerous quality hotels , beautiful beaches and lots of tourist attractions (diving , golf, tours, natural areas , ... ) . This is the typical Caribbean island have so often seen in movies, but with the comforts that the tourist demands . You can stay in a hotel 's own Cancun or Isla Mujeres , being this last option we recommend , but leave a little more expensive but worth it.

Recommend Isla Mujeres Turtle Farm visit ( the visit will be included in most of the tours you hire ) . It is a protected area where giant tortoises live in the wild and where it comes to recovering this endangered species . The Turtle Farm is open daily from 9-17 hours.

We also recommend Isla Mujeres the "Dolphin Discovery " . This is a dolphinarium with typical activities for the public to such centers , but with the difference of the natural environment in which we live.

Indispensable also natural park Isla Mujeres : Jug . It is a coral reef where we can discover the underwater wonders of the Caribbean.

do not miss these essential places in Cancun :

The Kabah Ecological Park : This is an urban park created to protect and preserve the most threatened native species and Cancun , preserving at the same time, a green lung imenso in the area. It is located southwest of the city and next to the Avenue du Bois , Nichupte Avenue and Avenue Kabah . A must visit.
The National Park West Coast of Isla Mujeres, Punta Cancun and Punta Nizuc : All this is a huge area listed protected Natural Park , which includes the coral reefs and reefs that lie off the mainland Cancun and Isla Mujeres. In fact, Women's Bay reefs are the second largest reef area in the world, constituting a system called " Great Mayan Reef " . Best of all is that most of the beaches that we listed above are within this huge national park reef , so you can imagine that swim and enjoy the sea at this place is much more than spending a nice day at the beach ; is just heaven really .
The archaeological sites of Cancun : Cancun Although not part of the Riviera Maya ( which is further south ) , exist in the area a number of archaeological remains of undoubted historical value that we use initiatory gateway to the universe of meosamericanas cultures . In this regard it is essential to visit the archaeological site of " El Meco " , " Yamil Lu'um " and " The King " three must see places where you can find out more about pre-Columbian cultures , science , art , their religion and their forms of government .
