Cancun

 

More than four decades ago, the site of Cancun was an isolated, wild sandbar. Today,  the island of Cancun is Mexico’s tourist capital and one one of the world´s top vacation havens with top hotels and resorts, great infrastructure, and the amenities to support over three million annual visitors.

Surrounded by the Caribbean Sea, Cancun is a beautiful beach getaway with white sands and warm waters. It offers a variety of aquatic activities, such as parasailing, submarine tours, boating excursions and fishing. Located in the state of Quintana Roo, Cancun is a Mayan word that means “nest of serpents”, and is the point of entry to many spectacular archeological zones in the Yucatan Peninsula, making it not only a relaxing resort destination but also a culturally rich urban center.

Cancún hosts a steady stream of international events, including the 2010 UNFCCC: COP 16 & Kyoto Protocol CMP 6 Conference. Cancun is Mexico’s leader in international meetings with over 27,000 hotel rooms, 213,254 square feet of event space, and 23 hotels that specialize in accommodating groups and events. The Cancun Center is Cancun’s largest conventions and exhibitions center with 152,852 square feet of event space located in the heart of the hotel zone.

Cancun’s impressive Moon Palace Spa & Resort has 2,357 rooms, 5 meeting halls with a capacity of up to 627 individuals, and offers the latest high tech audio visual and communications equipment.

Cancun International Airport is just 15 minutes from the heart of Boulevard Kukulkan, Cancun’s hotel center, and has direct flights to and from 24 American cities and international metropolitan areas, including Sao Paolo, Paris, and Rome.
