The Mexican resort of Cancún is located on the Yucatan Peninsula, on the Caribbean Sea. This location ensures that Cancún is blessed with beautiful tropical beaches, good weather and the presence of beautiful sights in the immediate vicinity of the city. Cancún has a wrong image in the Netherlands. It is described as too touristy, too American-oriented and too little authentic. That while about ninety percent of the popular seaside resorts worldwide may be even more ruined by tourism than Cancún. Anyone who takes the trouble to delve into Cancún as a holiday destination will see that it is a great place to spend several weeks. The lack of an old town or a boulevard is more than compensated by breathtaking beaches and hotels where you can really pamper yourself.
