Cancun also has the reputation of being something of a party town, so if that sounds like your cup of
tequila then great; otherwise be sure to check holiday timetables for students and college kids alike,
to avoid a nasty shock.
If relaxing on the beach and soaking up some rays doesn't appeal to you, perhaps you're the sort who
would enjoy immersing yourself in Mexico’s past. Touch down in one of the world’s largest cities,
Mexico City, before heading 30 miles out of town to Teotihuacán, an important city in the country’s
history, which is home to the magnificent Pyramid of the Sun and Pyramid of the Moon.
Within touching distance of Cancun is Chichen Itza, the ancient capital of the Mayan empire. Admire
the architectural beauty and learn about the mysteries of the Mayan astronomers, an ideal way to
spend a day away from the beach.
Should you find yourself on the other side of the country in La Paz or Cabo, be sure to venture to
Land’s End, where you can jump on a boat and head to El Arco, the Arch, and keep an eye out for sea
lions and pelicans.
