visit Cancún & Riviera Maya: get started
CANCÚN & RIVIERA MAYA TRAVEL GUIDE
What to eatTraditional dishes of the Yucatán Peninsula: sopa de lima (lime soup with chicken and tortilla), Cochinita pibil (pulled pork marinated in ground achiote seeds) and queso relleno (edam cheese stuffed with pork).
What to bring backHandmade jewellery, xtabentún (a honey and anise liqueur made in the Yucatán region) and ground achiote spice.
Fun FactIt might be hard to imagine, but Cancún was once practically deserted. Before the Mexican government decided to develop the area into a vacation mecca in 1970, only three people lived around the beach-clad coast—the caretakers of a coconut plantation. Today, there are a few more, about 700,000 inhabitants to be precise, with 5 to 10 million tourists visiting every year.
