Unlike other cities, where the old and the new overlap, Cancun keeps its modern golden age carefully separated from its ancient past. The famous fourteen-mile sandbar of Cancun, situated right off Mexico's lush eastern coast, is the seemingly fragile setting for a string of world-class hotels, a glittering international clientele, and a piquant reputation. The origins of this sophisticated paradise are famous--in 1967, a computer selected the site as an ideal vacation destination. In less than three decades, Cancun has been transformed from a remote, virtually uninhabited shore to one of the world's great resort destinations.
It should be said from the start that Cancun is best-suited to a very particular type of pleasure. It is a place for luxuriant lassitude and hedonistic entertainment, an enormous, self-contained pleasure ground for the fatigued. Guests need hardly walk more than a few metres to find whatever they desire, from a romantic gourmet restaurant to all of the pleasures of the beaches. That said, however, visitors should know that there are a number of interesting sites and excursions available in and around Cancun.
Cancun water sports are one of the main attractions for visitors to Cancun owing to the some of the world’s finest beaches and of course the Great Mesoamerican Reef which is the second largest reef in the world.
