Cancun – a resort town in Mexico. Very famous for the Americans, but there you can also meet a lot of Russians, Italians, Chineses and citizen of other countries.
When you arrive in Cancun, it is difficult to imagine that about 50 years ago, it was a small fishing village, known only by Mexicans.
Today, Cancun – a fantastic resort on the Caribbean Sea. By the way, the Caribbean Sea is really one of the most beautiful seas. Water has amazing colors, you can be enjoyed to seeing it endlessly.
Cancun is divided into two parts: Cancun Downtown (the city of Cancun where the locals live) and the Zona Hotelera (Hotel Zone). Actually, in the second zone, tourist spend most of the time. The white sandy beaches, the water of all shades of blue and the hot sun, what else is needed for nice vacations?
Apart the hotels in the Zona Hotelera, you will find a lot of bars, discos, restaurants, shops, souvenir shops, travel agencies, that will offer you to visit local attractions.
In Cancun is nice even just take a walk on the streets. All around the green, it so beautiful.
Depending on how many days and for what purpose you are going to Cancun, you will have the opportunity to enjoy your time. For example, Beach lovers will be able to lie whole vacation on the beach, swim and back home with chocolate color of the skin. Lovers of active pastime can go diving or go into the jungle. Lovers to visit historical sites, will also be very happy, because in a radius of 200 km from Cancun, there are archaeological sites of Mayan civilization, about which I will tell you in more detail next time.
In front of Cancun is located the Isla Mujeres. To reach that island you can use the ferry boat, which runs every half hour in both directions. This island is famous for its turquoise sea and the underwater «Museo Submarino de Arte (MUSA)» , which unfortunately I have not visited. Arrived to Isla Mujeres, I rent a scooter and made a tour around the island, and after that I swimmed in the Caribbean sea.
I would like pay special attention for the local cuisine. Many people know such dishes as fajitas, burritos, quesadilla, tacos, nachos, and other. Even if you’ve tried already all of this in your country, I’m strongly recommend you try it all again in Mexico. Believe me, you will be pleasantly surprised. In general, any national dish, it is better to try in the country from which it came. Because preparing foreign food, chef always trying to adapt it to the tastes of his countrymen.
In addition to Mexican cuisine you can enjoy also in the fish restaurants, a variety of fresh fish will not leave you indifferent. In Cancun I found and fell in love with a restaurant «Fred’s House». Very polite staff, pleasant environment, and most importantly, the food is unbelievable tasty.
If suddenly you do not like no one style of the food, about which I spoke up to now, don’t worry, in Cancun, you can always find other restaurants with different cuisines of the world.
Honestly, before this trip I never considered Mexico as a place that I would like to visit, but now I understood that, I was wrong! Beautiful nature, the Caribbean sea, Gulf of Mexico, the historical heritage, gastronomic variety and of course the local people, all this makes Mexico like one of the most attractive resorts in the world.
