Did you know this about Cancun?!
- Cancun is divided into three districts: Downtown Cancun, the Ecological Reserve, and the Hotel Zone. Downtown Cancun is a great place to learn about the locals and a less expensive place to shop with several flea markets. The Ecological Reserve is home to Mexico’s largest genuine ecosystem – and there are many tours that explore the area. Cancun’s Hotel Zone is a popular tourist area with shopping and beaches.
- When Cancun was first developing in 1970, there were only three residents living there. Today, there are more than 700,000 residents in Cancun.
- Since the beaches are made with crushed coral, the sand is never hot no matter how high the temperature is.
- Over 1/3 of Mexico’s tourism revenue is generated by Cancun.
