Things to do
In such a beautiful weather, it’s only normal to choose all the activities close to the beach and water. Swimming, snorkeling, diving and many other water sports are practiced here.
After a day on the beach, it’s time to check out the local food. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from but our advice is to try to local cuisine and the seafood. Of course, you can try a new cuisine each day of the week since there are plenty of restaurants offering anything from Italian to Argentine dishes.
Many couples like to have their wedding in spring and choose Cancun for their honeymoon . They always expect to be pampered and enjoy the intimacy needed. And fear not, the resorts in Cancun offer just that for anyone looking for a romantic getaway.
