Cancun city is located towards the south eastern side of Mexico. Towards the north east of Cancun you have the Yucatan Peninsula. The city of Cancun is ranked among the best tourist destinations in the world.

The city is located very near to the Caribbean Sea. The well known resort of Cancun is known as the Riviera Maya. The name Cancun suggests nest of snakes or a pot. In other places it is also known as the land of golden snakes. Originally the citizens of Cancun were the Mayans. During the time of conquest most of the Mayan population was destroyed. Few of them died because of various deadly diseases and famines etc. The World Tourism Organization with the help of their foundation of UNWTO – Themis had awarded the best award for the Cancun tourism.
