Moreover, several archaeological sites are accessible to tourists to better understand this lost civilization.
Cancun often hosts major international events, such as the fifth conference of the WTO and the Sixteenth International Conference on Climate Change. Every year in spring, the city hosts many American students who come to party at Cancun Spring Break, given broad coverage by the media.
Around the city are many points of interest, such as the Mayan Riviera circuit for observing ancient Mayan ports, today transformed into little bits of paradise. The archaeological zone of Tulum completes the circuit. Finally, to access amazing dive sites, boat over to Isla Mujeres and Cozumel.
