ancun served us more like a starting point from where we traveled across the Yucatan Peninsula. I will never forget the colour of the sea and white sand between my toes. The beach is simply gorgeous. We stayed in Cancun just for three nights and honestly most of the days we were on the road. We rented a car right at the airport at our arrival, because we planned to visit the surrounding areas. One day we went scuba diving near Isla Mujeres (this one was totally unplanned), the second day we headed toward Holbox island and we stayed there for one night. The third day we visited Valladolid and Chichen Itza, but unfortunatelly we didn't make it to Merida, the capital of the Mexican state of Yucatan and the largest city of the Yucatan Peninsula. The one thing I regret not seeing: Las Coloradas on the northern part of Yucatan. If possible, make sure you go there, because on photos it looks exceptional.
