With over 200 days of blue skies a year and an annual temperature of 80F, it is easy to understand why Cancun is one of the top tourist destinations for North Americans. Situated on the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula, its sprawling white and golden sand beaches juxtapose beautifully against the crystal blue and aqua waters of the Caribbean.
Over 700 years ago, Cancun was once home to the great Mayan civilization. Today, this exotic paradise threads the wonders of the ancient past with modern architecture of the present day. Known as one of the world’s most beautiful and exciting resort areas, the tropical climate draws over two million visitors a year. Cancun also offers a variety of restaurants, lively nightlife, a myriad of shopping opportunities.
Sticking to its true culture, the Cancun tourist areas typically offers local markets rather than strip mall establishments, and local street vendors and outdoor cafes instead of air-conditioned restaurants.
Downtown Cancún is fast growing and has become very commercial. It mostly draws locals and those visitors nostalgic for familiar chain establishments such as McDonalds, Outback Steakhouse, Dunkin’ Donuts, Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, and WalMart.
Much foresight and planning has gone into developing attractions in Cancun for visitors of every age from grandparents to grandkids.
Cancun is a hotspot any time of year.
