The Go To City in Mexico

Cancun, a seaside city in Quintana Roo, is one of the world’s best known tourist resorts. It is Mexico’s most popular destination.  Once a small fishing village, today it is made up of 2 parts – the tourist area with glitzy hotels, restaurants and shopping malls, and the downtown area inhabited by permanent residents.
The hotel zone, situated on a thin strip of land (Isla Cancun) in the shape of a figure ‘7’, is what people imagine when they talk about Cancun. It is a vision of Caribbean paradise with soft white sand beaches and clear blue-green waters.
Here you can enjoy high quality accommodation, a wide choice of restaurants and shops, a notoriously energetic nightlife, and an array of activities, including both land and water sports. 
It is also a great base from which to explore some of the nearby attractions, particularly the ancient Mayan site of Chichén Itzá on the mainland.
Cancun has something for everyone. It has a rich mixture of ancient architecture, spectacular modern hotels, colonial style buildings and much more besides. There is an amazing selection of water sports on offer, from snorkelling to scuba diving and exhilarating sports such as parasailing. Two great ecological parks offer a day away from the beaches, perfect for children and adults as there are endless activities on offer including swimming with dolphins.
All in all, the city has lots to offer. But for relaxing in the sun on the beautiful white sandy beaches, Cancun is the place to be. More info
