The city was founded on April 20, 1970, and today has about 700,000 inhabitants. Practically, this place consists of two separate and completely different parts: the city zones and hotel zones.
Did you know that the second largest coral reef in the world, called The Great Mayan Reef, starts in Cancun? It is 1,000 kilometers long and extends to Honduras. Unfortunately, in the city of Cancun, the coral reefs are dead. They have lost their colorful look due to many tourists who come here from all over the world. That’s why we urge everyone to protect flora and fauna of the destination they are traveling to and, if possible, buy sunscreen with an eco-friendly sticker that is not harmful to the underwater world.
The City Of Cancun
The hotel zone where tourists are most often located is 20 kilometers long and shaped in the form of number 7. It is connected to the mainland by bridges, and most hotels are located right there. Your first encounter with the city will follow just then. Cancun will show up to you in all its colors. You will see beautiful beaches, coconut palms, famous hotels, shopping malls, rivers of cars and buses, constantly racing around the hotel area. There are also street stands to offer you tastes of local food and, of course, cheerful, people, always ready to smile at you. That is Cancun. Maybe you want to experience Cancun beyond the Hotel Zone? If you’re ready for a little adventure, renting a car is a good option. It is the best way to sightsee and tour the entire city, and experience it from your angle. According to CarRentalCancun, you can find a wide variety of cars to rent here.

If you’re ready for the craziest party ever, Cancun is the perfect place to do it. Unforgettable parties, with amazing programs and attractions, last until the morning. It’s like you’re in Las Vegas. When it gets dark and street advertisements light up the city – a huge number of people rush to it. The rows in front of the clubs are unimaginable, it takes patience to get into any of them at all. However, in the opinion of most people, nature and the sea are the real reasons why it is worth visiting this place. The sand is white as snow, soft as flour, and the turquoise blue water gleamed as the sun pointed its rays straight to it. So don’t forget your sunglasses. You will need them as you sit on the hot sand, with your legs outstretched and the sea waves gently touch your feet, while you’re thinking of which shells to bring home as a souvenir.
Tequila With Tomato Juice
In Cancun, you will see many restaurants, which have their tequila museums. It is fun to choose one glass of tequila when you see a drink list that you could study for hours. Therefore, simply ask the waiter, to recommend something appropriate. Believe it or not, tequila is not drunk with lemon, but with tomato juice, which is spiced with chili. When you order one shot of tequila, you get salt, tequila, and tomato juice, which is drunk at the end, instead of lemon.
The Isle of Women (Isla Mujeres) is located in the northern part of Cancun. There is a ferry you can take from the hotel area and it takes about thirty minutes to get there. This island was once a small fishing village and today is a beautiful, peaceful place for tourists. It is a true haven for resting. The northern part of the island has the most beautiful beaches. Visit Playa Norte beach as it is one of the most popular on the island. The water is calm, shallow, which is why this place is ideal for families with small children. If you’re coming for a day out and ready for a little adventure, rent a golf cart. It is the best way to sightsee and tour the entire island. We guarantee it will be an unforgettable experience for you and you will fill the album with beautiful photos. Diving is also worth the buck, as nearby is MUSA, Mexico’s most popular underwater museum.
