Cancun stretches out along the Yucatan peninsula. If that doesn't immediately ring the bells of your heaven-on-earth meter, you may not know the Yucatan peninsula - though part of Mexico - belongs to the breathtaking destinations of the incomparable Caribbean. This means waters so blue you'll swear they've been painted but so clear you can see below them for miles. And the sand looks like something you pour on your breakfast cereal, only softer. All of this natural beauty makes Cancun one of the most desirable landscapes on the planet, and luxurious Mexican hospitality provides the rest.
Cancun's long thin beach separates the Caribbean waters from those of a natural lagoon. They're perfect for world-class snorkeling and scuba diving as well as kayaking or wind surfing. For couples, the long beautiful beach is perfect for romantic strolls and horseback riding, an activity also perfect for the jungle landscape beyond the lagoon. If you enjoy exploration, the beautiful Mayan ruins nearby are also a popular attraction for the area.
The hotels and resorts of Cancun offer luxury in keeping with the beautiful landscape. The pools, dining, and amenities in these world-class attractions are almost enough to keep you from the beach. Nearby the shopping is also incomparable with everything from locally-made souvenirs to American retailers to European boutiques. All of this to say, Cancun has everything you could want in a romantic getaway - both indoors and out. You won't regret a visit to this most popular Mexican-Caribbean escape.
