Famous for the famous spring break, a week when North American students arrive in their thousands for a vacation of excess at a lower cost, the seaside resort of Cancún, the capital of the federal state of Quintana Roo, located at the eastern tip of the peninsula of the same name, is nevertheless a splendid place. Created in the late 1970s by the Mexican government to relieve the congestion in Acapulco, there was then only a simple village with a hundred fishermen. Today, there are 600,000 permanent residents and nearly 7 million visitors per year! It must be said that the Caribbean Sea, with its turquoise waters, caresses 20 kilometres of paradisiacal beaches of white and fine sand that make up the hotel area of Cancún, separated from the land by an emerald green lagoon. In addition to the luxurious accommodation, refined tables, the multitude of possible sporting activities and the crazy nights of the resort, the Cancún tourist guide explores the cultural dimensions of the region, including the new Mayan Museum in Cancún, but also the surroundings of this corner of paradise: the island of Cozumel, famous for diving; the playa del Carmen, another festive and lively seaside resort; Tulum and its famous pre-Columbian site, a relaxing and eco-chic destination; but also the Bacalar lagoon, with its 7 blue colours, where all the worries of the world seem so far away. If this area of Mexico is one of the most touristy in the country, it is also one of the most magnificent!
