This is the city that started it all

Cancun is the first city that was developed in the early 1970s for tourism. Located on both the Mexican Caribbean Sea and the Nichupte Lagoon, it is hard to beleive that this metropolitan city was once a deserted island and beach area named KanKun. The diverse ecosystems, blue waters of the Carbbibean and vast amounts of land prompted the development of this southwestern part of the Yucatan Peninsula into a tourism and residental city. Since the first hotels opened in 1974, Cancun has become a top vacation destination and one of the most popular Caribbean destinations. The city is made up of three primary areas, the hotel zone, downtown for shopping and restaurants, and residential areas for residents of the city. The proximity to the Cancun international airport made travel effortless.

Today in Cancun – a metropolis of hotels, shopping, and restaurants

Cancun is a large city that has become an all-inclusive hotel zone, a shopping haven for both visitors and residents, and the location of newly opened cultural museums both on land and in the sea. MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) the underwater museum that can only be seen by divers or snorkelers, has two objectives. The 450 sculptures reflect the culture and history of Mexico, and assist in the ongoing growth of additional reef systems in the Caribbean. The Maya Museum of Cancun located in the middle of the hotel zone, has over 3000 artifacts that are rotated for public viewing throughout the year and shares property with the archaeological site,  San Miguelito, a mayan cultural site and ruin located on 85,000 square meters of property.

Cancun has a variety of fun, sun, and things to do for any visitor or resident. Like any large city, it requires a bit of navigation and some planning so that you quickly get to your destination or determine the important sites to see. The city is close to historical sites like Chichen Itza and the beaches are at your back door in the hotel zone. There is always something to do in Cancun, you just need to pick which activity, neighbourhood, or beach is best for you.
