When Mexico realized the growing importance of tourism to the economy as evidenced by the growth of the Pacific resorts of Puerto Vallarta, Acapulco, and Mazatlan in the late 1960’s, they set about looking for a perfect Atlantic-coast tourist destination. While several areas looked attractive, they could not have made a better choice than Cancun, which combines arguably the world’s finest beaches and environmental wonders with a rich cultural history.

The business of creating Cancun began when the island was connected to the mainland by a pair of bridges; the mangroves and scrub brush was hacked away; a wide main road was constructed down the middle of the island; and infrastructure laid in place. The first hotel opened in 1974, and the rest, as they say, is history. Cancun, blessed with over 300 days of sunshine per year and incredibly clear blue waters was launched, and now is responsible for 40% of the country’s tourism. Vacationers originally flocked to Cancun trips from Canada and the USA, but now arrive from literally everywhere on the planet…Cancun is the world’s 3rd most-visited vacation beach destination!


Today Cancún offers an unrivaled combination of high-quality accommodations, dreamy beaches, easy air access, and a wide diversity of shopping, dining, music, nightlife, real estate, and nearby activities -- most of them exceptional values for the money. There is also the lure of ancient cultures evident in all directions and a number of ecologically oriented theme parks.


Although the beaches are of course a primary attraction to travel to this beautiful spot, it’s not all about the soft white sand. Scuba divers and snorkelers come from around the world to enjoy the wonders of the world’s second-largest barrier reef. Families learn about North America’s past from the ruins left by the ambitious builders of the Mayan people. Conventions from around the globe choose Cancun as their host for memorable meetings and celebrations. And of course, there’s the free for all of Spring Break for the younger set every spring in Cancun. All are welcome in this first-rate, world-renowned playground of modern resorts in one of the world’s most beautiful settings.
