Cancun is the ideal destination for those seeking an elegant and active experience.
Cancun, a teeming city and world renowned tourist destination, is the gateway to the Mayan World situated on the northeast tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. Just three decades ago it was nothing more than a barrier island. Today it is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world with over 26,000 rooms supporting a year-round population approaching 1,000,000 people.
The main tourist zone of Cancun is a 14-mile stretch island shaped as a 7 with beautiful beaches on the outside and an expansive lagoon on the inside. The oceanfront is lined with luxurious hotels and condo residences, and the strip is complete with many shopping outlets, marinas, gourmet restaurants, and state-of-the-art discos. The top of the 7 leads to downtown. Cancun and faces Isla Mujeres (Island of Women). The water in this area, the Bay of Mujeres, is generally calm and features an amazing array of colors.
The crux of the 7, Punta Cancun, is where most of the discos and bars are located and is referred to as the Party Center and has very much a Vegas feel. The stem of the 7 faces the open Caribbean Sea with wide open, white sand beaches, and arguably the most beautiful water you will ever see, and houses most of the top hotels in Cancun.
There are many services and attractions within immediate reach including golf, fishing, snorkeling, diving, ruins, boating and island tours. Many hotels offer spas with the most sophisticated equipment and treatments available. Dining in Cancun is also excellent with a vast array of hotel and independent restaurants offering world-class cuisine.
