Cancún is a city in Mexico located on the Yucatan Peninsula bordering the Caribbean Sea and is known for its beaches, numerous resorts and nightlife. It is composed of 2 distinct areas: the more traditional downtown area which can easily be reached by public bus and the Hotel Zone, the seaside resort of superlatives on Mexico’s Caribbean coast.
Besides excellent restaurants, numerous discotheques, bars, and shopping facilities, you will fall in love with the long white beaches of Cancún. Water sports activities such as water skiing, parasailing, kayaking, sailing, snorkelling, and Scuba diving can be booked along this coastal strip.
The area north of Cancún, Costa Mujeres/Playa Mujeres, has only recently been developed. Here the visitor finds rather pristine and natural sandy beaches, framed by mangrove forests.
