Why Cancun

Geographically speaking, Cancun’s hotel zone is an island, 14 miles long and 3/4 of a mile wide. The hotel zone is connected to the mainland by two bridges, bordered on one side by the Caribbean and the other side by the Nichupte Lagoon.

Cancun and the Riviera Maya are jewels in the Mexican Caribbean. Within Cancun there are mostly European plan hotels, whereas the Riviera Maya offers more all-inclusive hotels. These are two great and at the same distinctly, unique destinations, having in common the friendliness and hospitality that characterize Mexico.

Isla Mujeres and Garrafon Park

What to do in Isla Mujeres? There are a lot of aquatic activities that you can do, such as: swimming with whale sharks, snorkeling, sailing on a catamaran, and Garrafon Park, to mention a few. Garrafon, e.g., is a natural park that neighbors Punta Sur. Punta Sur (meaning Southern tip) is home to an ancient Mayan temple and is known for its lovely reefs and spectacular cliffs. Since this is the southernmost tip of Mexico’s territory, it is here where the rays of the sun first hit the country.
