Where the weather is always balmy, the food is spicy and you’ll never run out of things to do; Cancun. This Mexican city is beautiful in so many ways and on a variety of levels. Tourists flock to this mecca of flavour in foods, sites, places to stay and things to do.
Riviera Maya: This is the main tourist district in and around Cancun. It's also called the Mayan Riviera and its a hot spot for hotels and beaches. It starts at Playa del Carmen and runs all the way along the coast until Tulum, including of course the Isla de Cozumel as well.
Chichen Itza: The temple is dedicated to the Mayan goddess of fertility and the moon, Ixchel. In the 1980s the ruins were heavily damaged by a hurricane but today are well-worth exploring if you're looking for a little Mayan flavour to add to your holiday in Cancun.
Snorkelling: Cancun is prime snorkelling territory. Take a boat out to secluded lagoons and snorkel the reefs and sunken ships, even underwater statue parks!
