Mexico’s Young City of Dreams
How does fourteen miles of pure white sand beaches, turquoise seas and tropical weather sound as the ideal destination for those of you who want to escape from the hum-drum of everyday life? If that’s you, then Cancun, on the Yucatan peninsular of eastern Mexico, is your ideal holiday resort. Cancun can fulfil the holiday dream of everyone who has ever longed for sun, sea and sand. In the state of Quintana Roo, this modern holiday destination offers every aspect of a get-away-from-it-all vacation in surroundings of sun-drenched, powdery sanded beaches, state-of-the-art hotels and more amenities than you could possibly try on in one visit.
Although the city centre is built on the mainland, the modern, beachfront hotels are located on a long, thin island shaped like a seven which is connected to the mainland by two bridges. Here you can find something to suit all tastes and expectations. The exotic names Mexican Caribbean and Mayan Riviera can only partly conjure up what you can expect from this all-encompassing paradise. The unique situation of the Gulf of Mexico to the north and the Caribbean Sea to the south have proved to be the ideal conditions for the dream-of-a-lifetime holiday.
The crystal clear waters around Cancun offer you the chance to indulge in those activities you’ve always longed to try. Never ridden a jet-ski, rowed a kayak, surfed the waves, been scuba-diving or fitted a snorkel and swum with beautiful and varied tropical fish? Here’s your chance. In the vast lagoon overlooked by Laguna Nichupte, on the western side of the island, a wide-variety of water-sport equipment is available for hire. Trainers are always on hand to help first-timers. If your interest lays not so much in swimming with the fish, but being the proud fisherman who lands a prize and takes the photo home to show their friends then rowboats for the individual and charter boats for the larger groups are readily available.
If you’ve ever dreamed of swimming with dolphins or thrilled at the idea of patting a live shark, Cancun offers the chance. Take a jet boat tour into the jungle or visit the beautiful island of Cozumel, Mexico’s largest island and famous water sport activity centre. This attractive and heavily-inhabited island is the location of the Chankanaab National Park.
In Laguna Nichupte itself, you can explore shopping malls and marinas, dine at waterfront restaurants, practice your golfing skills and, as the tropical evening draws nigh, enjoy views of the most incredible sunsets. Then take yourself off to downtown Cancun – Cancun Centro – for the nightlife experience of a lifetime and a taste of real Mexico. Bars, nightclubs, and restaurants offer a wide variety of opportunities. Do you fancy a romantic meal for two in a quiet secluded corner, a sport for a quite drink or the all-out light flashing sensation of a glitzy club where you can dance the night away. All these, and more, are on offer in the Party Zone at a price which will more than please your holiday budget.
If you should desire a change from the sea-and-sand based activities and want to explore some of Mexico’s history, Chichen Itza is only a bus-ride away or a two and a half hour journey by car. This famous Mayan archaeological site includes the stunning Kukulcan Pyramid and a nearby cenote (a deep, natural well) where you can have a refreshing swim. Alternatively, Tulum, the only Mayan site to overlook the Caribbean is a two hour bus ride. Believed to be an important ceremonial site forthe Mayan people, you can see the impressive El Castillo pyramid as well as over sixty other structures which date back over seven centuries. However, the tallest pyramid on the Yucatan Peninsular can be found at Coba hidden deep in the jungle.
Cancun has already become a popular resort for honeymoon couples, such is the romantic atmosphere which surrounds the location, but many couples are now looking for a complete celebration and arranging their weddings here too. What could be more idyllic than a ceremony in the sun overlooking azure-blue waters with your loved-one by your side?
So, whatever your preferences or desires, your dreams or your plans, Mexico’s newest, brightest and best holiday resort will offer everything you’ve ever wanted. Ask and Cancun, can deliver.
