Cancun, a city filled with beautiful beach resorts. A place with facilities for vacationers, a bit kinda Miami. Tourism is a great deal in Cancun with well organized getaway packages for families and couples. You can get all inclusive Cancun vacation packages with airfare under $500. Great deal, right?
Is located north side from Cancun. One very cool thing about Isla Mujeres is that you can walk cross the water (the water only gets to your hip) to Cancun which is about 20mins. You get a lot of tourist walking down from Cancun to Islas Mujeres only just to catch the sunrise.
It was named Isla Mujeres because it was believed and still that you can spot a mermaid at the island. It rumored around and attracted pirates from all over, making them bunk at the island anytime they voyage the cost.
Towards the north of Cancun close to the jungle there resides the main pyramid called Chichen-itza. Chichen-itza is known for its famous gigantic shadow snake slithering down the stairs at the first day of spring (equinox) in reflection of the sunset. About 30mins show with loads of tourist waiting to make a video of it.
The second pyramid is called Coba. Coba is to the south closer to Tulum. Coba stairs are not climable as you can see from the photo their is a rope attached to it from above to help people climb.
Playa del Carmen:
This is more fun party type of beach as you can get mostly young people around. They have an important music festival called VPM usually celebrated on the last week of December or first week of January. A one week electronic festival.
They start up with a brunch party and at night the main artist comes on stage to perform, big artist like D.j Carl Cox. Blue parrot and carnival are the two main stages. You can also get tours like diving to go see the tiburon ballena (whale-shark). Was a great experience!
Once you get into Puerto Adventuras beach you get the sensation of being in a beach made for couples so, for all the couples out there looking for a nice getaway beach I would recommend Puerto Adventuras, Cancun, Mexico. Two weeks round trip to have the full fun from Cancun town to Tulum.
So, I would say Tulum for me has it all for both old and young with a hippie vibes attached to it. Tulum is divided into two parts the beautiful archaeological side and the well reformed tourist resort. The archaeological part of Tulum is all built up shack houses.
Here, I think the amount of taxis you get is uncalled for because you can literally move around the small town with a bike. The best beach to me at the Mexican Caribbean comes to be Tulum with the finest sands you can get in any beach so far.
I have to leave you guys with the lovely sunrise photos of Tulum, enjoy folks!!!
