Cancun Beaches

Most tourists are attracted to Cancun is its beaches and the beauty of the Caribbean. Cancun beaches are federal property, and any tourist has the right to visit them, but do not use the equipment without the permission of hotel management or payment.

Bird's-eye view of Cancun's coastline resembles figure 7. It is the so-called spit as seven and there are beaches of Cancun. They can be divided into two parts: a short (1 to 9 km.) And long (10 to 25 km.). The short part is the upper part of the Group of Seven, here the sea is calmer, since it closes off the waves Island Women, but it is believed that the beaches are a bit worse than the long part.

Where to eat in Cancun and on food prices

In Cancun, a large number of restaurants, bars and cafes. The most expensive of which are located in the hotel zone on the so-called Spit. But if you do not want to overpay for the image to eat and not be hungry, I would suggest eating at the Chinese cafe, where everything else you will enter in the account is not a tip as opposed to Mexican institutions. The average bill for lunch in the usual Chinese cafe in a residential area of Cancun $ 4-5.

Cancun sex tourism

In Mexico, officially permitted prostitution. So lovers of sexual exoticism can quite legally to visit a brothel in Cancun. Some taxi drivers do offer to take this place. In the newspapers there Cancun offers of sexual services. There are elite striptease bars, where you can be alone with you like a a stripper, but in such a case, the price for a beautiful a stripper can go up to 500 dollars. In the residential area of Cancun, I met gay clubs as well as clubs with erotic show program. Price of these institutions was about $ 10.

Transport

The most economical mode of transport is the bus. Buses operate from 6.00 to 22.00, fare less than 10 pesos.
Taxis in Cancun quite expensive mode of transport especially in area hotels. A taxi will cost probably less if you do not call it the hotel and go out and catch the car themselves. Do taxi drivers in Cancun have an unwritten rule that the tourists have to pay two times more than locals, so hiring a taxi is to bargain, and of course always negotiate the price in advance.
