Cancun Vacation

When imagining a Cancun, Mexico vacation most picture endless stretches of golden beach, littered with sprawling resorts and crowds of bikini clad bodies – this isn't a dream it's a Cancun reality!

Unbeknownst to many, Cancun was once a powdery deserted island that underwent a complete revamp in the 1970's in the hopes that it would become a popular Mexico vacation destination. Cancun didn't disappoint! Today Cancun is Mexico's largest and most frequented vacation spot, with over 2-million visitors annually.

Cancun lies in the Mexico State of Quintana Roo on the beautiful Yucatan Peninsula. Cancun vacations offer its visitors the best of both worlds – spring breakers and thrill-seekers will love it for its all-night, all-inclusive discos; while water lovers will enjoy its stunning reefs, opulent waters and its wealth of colorful marine life.

Those seeking some Cancun vacation solitude away from the crowded beaches and sex-crazed college students should avoid Cancun during spring break – when it reaches capacity. Traditional Mexico vacation adventure can be found in the nearby villages of Isla Mujeres and Playa del Carmen, even Cozumel is laid-back compared to Cancun. Mayan culture also waits at the nearby sites of Talum and Chichen Itza, two of the most popular archaeological sites in Mexico.
