Okay, you don’t really need five reasons to go to Cancún. One
should suffice: the beach in this city, if you’ve ever seen photos of it!
But here are five reasons more that you should be packing your
bags and setting out on a trip to the glorious Mexican Caribbean:
1. Check out – or, better yet, check into – the Moon Palace : one of
the region’s top ten beach resorts, and all-inclusive to boot.
Swimming pools? How about ten. Places to eat? The resort has
a good twenty. Golf? Check. Spas? There are several. When you
come to Cancún, you’re going to be at a premiere spot right on
the Caribbean ocean. So let yourself get pampered a little!
2. If you’re at all into ancient history, one of the best sites – and by
far less crowded than the more well-known Chichen Itza – is
Tulum , an easy day trip from the tip of the peninsula. You can
wander these wonderful ruins alone or with a guide. (But if you
actually want to learn anything about the ancients who built it,
you’ll need a guide!) On the stone, iguanas pose so that you
can take selfies. Overall, it’s an appropriate place on the shores
of the Caribbean: relaxed.
3. Right off the coast from Cancún, the Isla Mujeres isn’t only for
women. (And that’s despite the name meaning “women’s
island” in Spanish!) Here you can enjoy the relaxed vibe of a
Caribbean, while keeping the skyline of the city in sight. Spend
a relaxing afternoon at the beach, between two of the best
meals you’ll eat in Cancún. This island is renowned for its food,
and you’ll find everything – from superb Italian and French
flavours to wonderful, local Mayan and Yucatecan cuisine.
4. While the Tulum ruins are right on the beach, the ruins of Cobá
are tucked away in the jungle. However, they are well worth the
extra effort to get to. At Cobá, you’re allowed to climb one of
the ancient Mayan pyramids, and get the reward of a
spectacular vista across the Yucatán jungle. Furthermore, you’ll
be enveloped by the feeling of authenticity: these ruins today
are as surrounded by the ever-encroaching forest as they
must have been ages ago. Cobá is a must-see – and the drive
from Cancún is less than two hours!
5. Tired of beaches and ruins? Then it’s time to hit the clubs! The
best club in Cancún, by far, is Coco Bongo – a huge dance club
with a thousand incredible acts, any one of which will make
you forget that you’re not in Las Vegas! Tickets come with
unlimited drinks, and the club stays open well past the USA’s
mandated closing time for such establishments. Dance the
night away – and then sleep all day at the beach. You’re in
