Cancun Vacations

By: Kristy Annely

Cancun is a paradise holiday destination located amongst the beautiful Mayan ruins of Mexico. This is definitely a great holiday destination for both the young, and the young at heart. Those who love all kinds of water sports, eating, nightlife and shopping should definitely head for Cancun.

Cancun Island is only 14 miles long and less than a mile wide. This is why you are always near a beach here. You can enjoy the beaches with water skiing, renting a jet ski or perhaps soaring into the skies under a parasail. Or you could join the windsurfers on Islam Majors, or go exploring with a kayak or a paddleboat. Besides all this, there are also local outfitters who provide snorkeling and scuba trips to the various coral reefs. If water sports are just not up your alley, a Cancun vacation also proves to be suited for exploring some of the Yucatan Peninsula’s spectacular ruins, including Talcum, the seaside-facing blue lagoon and the sacred city of Chichen-Itza. Xcaret is another amazing water park that is suited on the sunken ruins of a Mayan port city.

Those who aren’t fond of sports can visit the many handsome and substantial malls found amongst the Cancun hotels. You will find everything from local craft galleries to international fashion chains like Ralph Lauren and Benetton. Those who prefer traditional shopping should head to downtown Cancun, the mainland part of the resort area, where there is a mix of stores, shops and flea markets in Avenida Tulum. You can find local toys, foodstuffs and beautiful souvenirs here. And once the sun goes down, Cancun lights up. The numerous clubs and discos here seep Latin, jazz, rock and salsa. If you are looking for a quiet night, you could head for the lobby bars of hotels for flamenco and jazz. The romantic can go to the numerous dinner cruises available that offer music and dancing on the waves. So just contact your travel agent for your Cancun vacation and pack your bag with clothes fit for the tropics, to enjoy yourself to the limits at Cancun.
