Cancun Diversions

Cancun Diversions Tags: Cancun, Mexico

Cancún sparkles like a gem stone with more shining facets than can be experienced in a lifetime of holidays. Few tropical destinations feature as many vacation diversions. Action centers around Paseo Kukulcán, a 14-mile landscaped boulevard that winds its way down the middle of the Zona Hotelera or Hotel Zone. At the northern end stands La Ciudad de Cancún, a city of over a half million simply known as Centro. At the other, the beginning of Highway 307 and the beaches of the Riviera Maya.
