Cancun is a city in Mexico located in the coastal area. It’s located in the Quintana Roo state in the very east of Mexico. Every year over 4 million tourists visit Cancun, and it’s famous for its beautiful white-sand beaches and lively nightlife. Cancun is best to visit from February to May when the weather there is wonderful.

Underwater Museum (MUSA)

This is one of the most extraordinary museum experiences that you can have. MUSA is unique because it’s completely underwater. If you want to visit, you will need scuba equipment or at least a snorkel. It’s located around 6 meters below and it has over 500 sculptures set in a unique environment. For non-swimmers, there are tours in glass-bottomed boats, so there is no reason to miss it at all.

Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is an island located around 13 kilometers north of Cancun. Its name means “Women’s Island”. This island was considered sacred to the Ixchel, Mayan goddess of fertility, medicine, and happiness. It was believed that only she and her group of women were living on the island alone. When people from Spain later came to the island, they found lots of women statues, and they named the island. The island has gorgeous white sand beaches and pleasantly warm water. It’s a real paradise to visit!


Selvatica is an adventure park located in the middle of the forest. This area was formerly inhabited by Mayans and if you like adventure, then you will surely like ziplining, extreme canopy, and SUV rides through the jungle.
