Cancun is a popular Mexican resort located in the southeastern Mexico on the northeast coast of the Yucatán Peninsula, Riviera Maya. Cancun is one of the top 10 World’s resort. Our J&T travel expert will tell you why Cancun is so attractive. In fact
Cancun is an ideal place for vacation. It has everything you need to enjoy your unforgettable vacation: warm Caribbean sea, white sand, tasty Mexican food and sincere hospitality of Mexican residents. Imagine after spending all day on the beach, swimming in warm waters of Caribbean sea, you are resting in a chilly restaurant, drinking freeze Margarita cocktail and enjoying tasty taco with prawns and fajitas. Musicians are playing Mexican traditional music and life is great. If you like it, then Cancun is definitely your choice!
The city began as a tourism project in 1970s and became very popular thanks to the Cuba revolution. Today Cancun is a place with great infrastructure exists in an ideal balance with the untouched nature beauty. Cancun has a lot of good hotels and restaurants with tasty traditional and international food. So if you are a gourmet, there is no better place for you then Cancun. What about to enjoy your food and watch dolphins simultaneously? We recommend to visit La Isla Shopping Village located at the address: Blvd. Kukulcan Km. 12.5, La Isla, Zona Hotelera, 77500 Cancún, Q.R., Mexico and swim with dolphins in Interactive Aquarium Cancun.
However if you think that Cancun is good enough only for lazy tourists to spend all day on the beach, you are wrong. There are a lot of interesting tours. For example, if you would like to stock your mind with knowledge about interesting Maya culture, go to Chichen Itza 200 km far from Cancun to enjoy this powerful place. You will see Temple of Kukulkan pyramid and touch to the history of ancient Maya civilization. Mel Gibson’s Movie “Apocalypto” came to my mind, you have to watch it.
Kukulkan or “Plumed Serpent” is the presiding deity in maya’s mythology. The cult of Kukulkan was the first Mesoamerican religion. The structure of the pyramid is 24 m (79 ft) high, plus an additional 6 m (20 ft) for the temple. The square base measures 55.3 m (181 ft) across.
The pyramid consists of a series of square terraces with stairways up each of the four sides to the temple on top. Sculptures of plumed serpents run down the sides of the northern balustrade. During the spring and autumn equinoxes, the late afternoon sun strikes off the northwest corner of the pyramid and casts a series of triangular shadows against the northwest balustrade, creating the illusion of a feathered serpent “crawling” down the pyramid. The event has been very popular, but it is questionable whether it is a result of a purposeful design. Each of the pyramid’s four sides has 91 steps which, when added together and including the temple platform on top as the final “step”, produces a total of 365 steps (which is equal to the number of days of the Haab’ year).
Maya civilization is well known for its art, architecture, mathematics, calendar, and astronomical system. The interesting fact that Maya added the symbol for zero. In its earliest uses, the zero served as a place holder, indicating an absence of a particular calendric count. This later developed into a numeral that was used to perform calculation. Thus, if you are intersected in historical facts, visit Chichen Itza and touch to the history. Moreover, this place is a good source of energy.
MUST DO thing in Cancun during your trip is to swim in the Sacred Cenote. It is a real masterpiece of the nature. Maya used it not only for drinking water, but also sacrificed objects and human beings into the cenote.
Nowadays tourists has an opportunity to swim in a chilly waters in a cave. This is very unusual and exiting.
