Cancun is a consequence of deliberate attempt of the Mexican government to dig up a coastal paradise. To make matters simpler, to stimulate tourism and generate foreign revenue, the Mexico's ambitious tourism planners began a hunt for a near perfect beach resort to match up with Acapulco. Located in the state of Quintana Roo in the Yucatan Peninsula region of Mexico, Cancun was discovered with a subtropical climate where the average temperatures range between 27º C (81º F) and 35º C (95º F). Moreover, it experiences sunny days throughout most of the year with little drizzles. The setting was perfect with Caribbean Sea’s turquoise-blue water and white-sand beaches creating the serene backdrop for a rejuvenating vacation.
Cancun is the eastern most city of Mexico. Once a sleepy fishing village, Cancun gradually came into life with massive construction programmes and now possesses its own international airport. The city today provides accommodation to over 350,000 people and there are more than 140 hotels to welcome in the swelling flow of tourists from all corners of the globe. The main city area is divided into two distinct regions. The coastal part is dotted with a long strip of hotels, bed and breakfasts and restaurants. Well-paved roads, discos, activity oriented beaches, bars, underwater amusement park build up the exciting feature of this part of the city. The other side is the downtown where all the commercial complexes and local communities are situated. This part of the city is linked with the suave seafront through two bridges. Visitors can take any apartment for rent or opt for the reasonable hostels of this region and enjoy the exciting lifestyle of seaside.
