If you want to have a first-class Caribbean holiday, you can choose from a number of opportunities. Caribbean is Paradise on Earth and wherever you go, each and every destination will be welcoming, friendly and allowing to have rest all the time.
If you most of all admire newly built resorts, in this case Cancun is surely what you are looking for. In 1970s Cancun started its development as a purpose built resort. Mexican Government was conducting a sort of contest among various Mexican destinations and due to its geographical location, its all-year round mild climate, crystal blue water and sooth white beaches, Cancun was fated to win it.
Thirty five years later, Cancun is one of the prime tourist destinations in Latin America. More than three million people visit Cancun every year and all of them prove that Cancun will never spoil your Caribbean holiday.
Cancun is located in the Yucatan Peninsula and consists of Cancun City and Cancun Island, which is joined to the mainland by a bridge on each end of the Island. Cancun Island is also known as Hotel Zone.
Cancun Island is the perfect place for tourists. They can find everything they like here. Chic and luxury hotels, bustling nightlife, world-class chefs in restaurants or something more modest, like American fast-food restaurants. The inviting look of shops and boutiques call you to buy something very special, very Cancun.
All around the Island the top-rated Caribbean hotels are scattered. You will be able to find here such brand names as Marriott, Hilton, Radisson and Sheraton.
Those who want to feel the real Mexico can head for the Cancun city where everything is much more traditional. If you lucky, you'll even have an opportunity to watch the world famous bullfight. And later you can have a day trip to Merida with a stop to have a look at magnificent Mayan temples. Even Cancun has traces of the remains of the temples. Walking in the downtown Cancun you will notice a lot of streets named after Mayan cities. Despite the well-preserved ancient buildings, Cancun itself is modern and fashionable city. It is full of perfect restaurants, open-air markets, malls, shops and boutiques with the lower prices than at the same places but on the Island.
And all the time during your Caribbean holiday you will be inspired by the beauty of the surrounding nature, by natural lagoons, by stunning coral reefs and by dense jungle. If you are not the one who spends your Caribbean holiday lying on its spectacular beaches all the time, you will not get bored as well. Caribbean Shore offers endless ocean vistas. Choose you style and your waters - angry and foaming sea will provide you with unforgettable surfing experience and calmer waters of the lagoon are the best for swimmers.
Water sports are also available all around the shore. Have you ever tried waterskiing or jet skiing, parasailing or banana boat rides? If not, it's high time to try, taking into account that it is summer now in Cancun and temperatures are very comfortable for those who are fed up with winter.
