Cancun is a planned tourist city on Mexico's Yucatan Peninsula. Cancun is a popular vacation spot on the Caribbean coast. There is much to do in the city, and if you're willing to take an hour or two bus trip, there is more to explore than you could possibly fit into a single vacation. One word of warning, late June is especially hot in Cancun, so come prepared or try the off season. Hurricanes are also a major threat in the summer and early fall.

Cancun itself was built on a site selected by computer (yes, really) as the ideal spot for a new tourist development by the Mexican government. The state of Quintana Roo was still a territory and this area had few inhabitants when Cancun was built. Cancun and the surrounding area is almost entirely built around the tourist industry. It abounds with all-inclusive resort hotels. Stay here only if you don't mind spending your vacation with many other tourists. Those mostly seeking beach, scuba diving, or who are a bit adventurous can easily find rooms on equally beautiful and less crowded beaches somewhere an hour or two drive south along the coast for much less than the cost of major Cancun hotels. Some Spanish language skills may aid in finding better deals.

You can rent a car, or take the bus to Puerto Morelos (about 20 minutes) or Tulum (1 hour). Playa del Carmen (45 minutes, MXN$65) is between the two, but caters to the all-inclusive crowd. Taxis are also available. Those looking for a base of operations who want good or luxury hotels and the advantages of urban life but prefer more local flavor may wish to stay in the Yucatan's main city of Mˇrida; many international flights in to Cancun continue on after a stop to Mˇrida's international airport.

[edit] Cancun is very easy to navigate. To the South is the airport, to the North is the city and in between are all the hotels, beaches and bars. Buses head up and down the main thoroughfare (Blvd Kukulcan (from the Mayan Kukul/Bird - Can/Snake "The Feather Serpent - The Main Deity of the Mesoamericans) constantly and are cheap, but be prepared for a cramped and rough ride. Taxis are plentiful, but a bit expensive.

Be very careful if you choose to drive in Cancun. The police seem to pull tourists over at the drop of a hat. At night it looks like Christmas with all the red, blue, and yellow flashing lights. When you pick up a rental check that all the lights work! Also when you are pulled over for a light violation do not be surprised if the police holds out an open palmed hand, while holding your drivers license hostage in the other.
