Situated off the Caribbean Sea in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, Cancun is a popular destination. It traces its roots back to the Mayan civilization and you can still find some of the sites at El Meco and El Rey. In fact, along the Riviera Maya and in the Yucatan interior, you will find many archaeological sites like Tulum and Coba. These are fascinating journeys into an almost forgotten life and time so get your cheap tickets to Cancun and go exploring! You could go on jet-ski jungle tours and excursions by boat, in the Nichupte Lagoon too. Here, you can snorkel and explore coral and fish or jet off through the mangroves for some spectacular sights.
