More beautiful than the Blue Lagoon

In 1970 Cancún was a deserted island few people even knew existed, but today it is Mexico’s largest tourism resort, renowned for its gorgeous white sand beaches caressed by the warm, turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea. Cancún today is a destination for the active traveler who wants adventure. From mountain biking, driving through the jungle in open-top jeeps, to swimming or clubbing, its all here. This is a place where the aura of mystery and majesty of the Mayans is a bus-ride away, where the bohemian tranquility of the Puerto Morelos still whispers how things used to be.
