Cancun offers so many highlights it's hard to list them all. The best of the many include: the beach, the resorts, the ocean, and of course the nightclubs are to be envied by the rest of the Western Hemisphere.Quick Tips: If you do not want to be dragged into a store to look at the merchants' goods, avoid eye contact. However, it is fun to look around all of the little shops in the Coral Negro Flea Market; just be sure to haggle with the merchant for a lower price. When you go to Cancun, take the all-inclusive package if possible.Best Way To Get Around: The best way to get around the central area of the Hotel Zone is by bus; it's only .65, roughly.

Hotel

This resort is large with all the necessary amenities: beach, pool, bar. When I first walked into the resort, I was in awe. In front of the main doors is this very large, saltwater aquarium with fish bigger than me! This lovely lady offered me a strawberry daiquiri to get my vacation started.

Restaurant

I'm not sure about the food, I only ate quesadillas while I was in Cancun (vegetarian). The atmosphere of the restaurant was great. The place is a hut-like building with one big open-air dining area that spilled out onto the deck. We sat on the deck over the lagoon and had our dinner under the stars. Inside, was a live band playing salsa music, and one of the employees grabbed me up from the table and gave me a quick lesson. I've never had so much fun! Favorite dish: The bucket of beer. It's a bucket filled with ice and a HUGE bottle of SOL. My guy also got a bucket of shrimp . . . he said it was good.
