Cancun, with a population of around 800,00 people, is located on the Yucatán Peninsula, on the Carribean Sea, and is one of Mexico’s easternmost cities.

The first hotel to be built in Cancun was called Playa Blanca, which became a Blue Bay hotel, and eventually Temptation Resort. Cancun has a tropical climate with hot temperatures year-round, while peak precipitation occurs in October. Some of Cancun’s major attractions include La Isla Shopping Village, Isla Mujeres island, Coco Bongo night club, Chichén Itzá, Puerto Juárez, Playa Tortugas beach, Luxury Avenue boutique mall and The City Nightclub.
