Two nights in Cancún
Two nights in Cancún
Talking about good and bad things Cancún was everything what I was expecting. I think everybody has this place in his/her top 5 of places to visit. However, to be honest, this is not the tourism I would really enjoy.
Cancún is located in Yucatan peninsula. It started its touristic development after 1970. It is said that before that there were a few people living there. Nowadays they bring to Mexico a lot of money because of the tourism. Cancún is not ugly, actually its sand is almost white. It has part of a coral reef where you can snorkel.
The amount of hotels in Cancun is countless and all of them are conected one after the other. The sea water is light blue making you to feel like swimming.
There are some options whether you like parting. Even though I did enter to any club the party is apparently really good. There will be also be a lot of people outside the clubs convincing you to get into theirs clubs.
Cancun is divided by 3 parts, the hotels area which is the richest, downtown which was were we stayed and the poorest area. There is nothing to see or do in the two lastest besides a couple of malls or some big markets. The fun is in the hotels area. This is the place where you have to arrive with a lot of money so as to your fun could be guaranteed. Practically, the more money you have the more fun and less worries you will have. In our case, since we did not have enough money we were very worried and we did not have so much fun.
You can say that Cancun is the paradaise and you have likely heard that a couple of times. However, in my opinion it is far away to have that name. Most of the beaches are private and you cannot easily walk around them. It is incredible to know that along the 23 km that the beach has it only has 4 entrance. It is completely designed so that you can arrive there with your money, you stay in your hotel and then you won’t even realize which country you are in. That is not bad. It is not the kind of tourism I like. There are also tons of tourists and it could even be a bit uncomfortable being on the beach with so many people.
I’d say that Cancun is a place without and Identity as many on this world. It is a place plagued with many chain hotels waiting for guests so as to pick up their money. Some of them millionaires, others are solely comun people who are spendig their saved money and others like me who didn’t have as much money as others ended up having a «nice» time there. However, I had enough fun to say that I will no longer go back again.
