Cancun is almost 2500 miles away from the US/Mexico border where the drug conflict is taking place. It is the distance equal to New York City to Denver. We have assisted many families to travel to Cancun and none has seen or heard about any problems.
There are a thousand and one things to do in Cancun. A full range of watersports, including some of the world's most exquisite snorkeling and scuba diving, plus championship golf courses and you have a location that will delight even the most discerning traveler.
For watersports enthusiasts, Cancun offers some of the best scuba diving, snorkeling and fishing in the world, owing to the Great Mesoamerican Reef just off the coast of Cancun. This is the second largest reef in the world - second only to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia.
There are such a varied choice of cuisine, with everything from traditional Mexican restaurants to ultra-chic bistros. You will find something to suit all tastes and budgets and will get fantastic service with a smile wherever you go. Cancun's Hotel Zone is renowned for its nightlife, boasting some of the best nightclubs in the world playing everything from salsa to disco to R & B and live music venues.

Cancun's Mayan Culture is its crowning glory. The aura of mystery and majesty still lingers around the Mayan ruins and archaeological sites such as Chichen Itza, Tulum and Coba to mention but a few. These are all within easy reach of Cancun.
In the near future the crystal clear waters will be home to one of the largest underwater museums on the planet. . Forming this museum will be a series of underwater sculptural installations all sited within the protected National Marine Park, of the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico.
Divers and snorkellers will have the opportunity to admire more than 400 original sculptures in depths ranging from 9 to 20 feet. The artist behind the project Jason deCaires Taylor offers a contemporary and cultural view of how the Mayan people have evolved through out the years in "The Silent Evolution". This monumental installation consists of more than 400 life size figurative sculptures. Also located in the museum, near the island of Isla Mujeres, a sculpture entitled "The Dream Collector" will be submerged, along with many other unique master pieces.
The sculptures are all designed to become artificial reefs and are constructed from special materials which promote marine life and create areas for corals to flourish and marine creatures to breed and take refuge, boosting the local ecosystem. The appearance of the sculptures will change over time as the coral grows and marine life colonize the structures. You cannot miss it.
