Cancun...Mexico's Premier Resort

Cancun is one of the world's most exciting resorts. Twenty years ago it was an isolated and almost desolate tropical island, largely untouched since the decline of the mighty Mayan empire around the 13th century. Today it is a tropical paradise on the Mexican Caribbean, hosting over a million visitors a year who come to enjoy its unspoiled beaches, crystal-clear waters and Indian heritage.

To savor its attractions, one must appreciate the extraordinary civilization that flourished in the Yucatan Penisula more than 1,000 years ago.

To vacation, to relax, to ponder in a setting like this is what gives many an extra dimension to stay in Cancun, something they may never experience anywhere else. And yet Cancun doesn't have to apologize for its resort facilities. It offers magnificent beaches and some of the best snorkeling and diving areas in the world. Sailing deep-sea fishing and cruising are all fun and popular.

After you've had a chance to enjoy its soft, white beaches and turquoise waters, take some time to expore the ancient ruins of the Mayas. You won't forget it!
