Cancun Celebrates 42nd Birthday

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Cancun, Mexico—Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Unveiled as a premier vacation spot just three years after its discovery, the paradise of Cancun is still going strong on its 42nd birthday today.

Four 5-star hotels and world-class golf courses are shining trophies of what attract over 3 million visitors a year, but it’s the opportunities afforded by Cancun’s natural landscape that make this elite location unique to anywhere else in the world. Run from the white sandy beaches into the turquoise ocean, or take a boat out a little further and swim among the whale sharks. True adventurers can dive deeper into the Underwater Museum, then fly in the opposite direction and explore ancient Mayan communities while zip lining through the jungle. While the country’s list of ever-evolving adventures continues to grow every year, the pristine landscape, fine dining of various persuasions and warm hospitality are sure to prevail.

Cancun is also celebrating the final year on the Mayan calendar, welcoming the dawn of a new beginning. All of this year, the city will be announcing various celebrations for the “new era,” culminating on the last day in the calendar on December 12.
