With over 14 miles of breathtaking Caribbean coastline, Cancun is Mexico's most popular waterfront resort with a historic past. Mayan royalty first settled here in A.D. 250, naming it "Cancun", which means "pot of gold". When you see the shimmering turqouise waters of the Caribbean, you'll know have uncovered a treasure.
The beaches on the Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun and its neighbor Cozumel, are perhaps the finest in the world, and quite unique to Mexico. The sand her is so incredibly white and soft that a stroll along the beach is like taking a walk through a field of talcum powder. The surrounding waters are warm and crysal clear, well suited for exploration beneath the surface.
