Plunge into Cancun

Cancun, Mexico

Plunge into Cancun’s crystal-blue waters, and savor a new-and-improved spring break experience in this paradisiacal stretch of the Yucatan Peninsula. Cancun’s shoreline recently underwent a $71 million makeover, with 1.3 billion gallons of fresh sand added to the seashore. Once you’ve done the beachy thing, indulge in Cancun’s other outdoor delights, from drift diving off the coast of Cancun and nearby Cozumel to water-skiing on ethereal Nichupte Lagoon, a body of fresh and saltwater between Cancun’s Hotel Zone and the mainland. Take plenty of pictures, too; this is one Facebook photo album you can safely call, “Not Your Typical Cancun Spring Break.”
