Cancun Map 2Cancun, Quintana Roo

“This is the resort City that everyone else has tried to copy.  Beautiful white sand, blue Caribbean waters, luxurious hotels and complexes. You could just stay at your hotel and never even know you were in Mexico.

There are nightclubs, bars and restaurants everywhere. This place is happening and so are the prices. But hey, this is THE resort city of the country.”

Dorothy Bell
