North America

Cancun, Mexico

sunny 30 °C

Day One (Part One):The last country I will be visiting from the region of North America is Cancun, Mexico! Cancun is a popular vacation city on Mexico's Caribbean coast. If you like parties and beaches, this is the perfect place to go. As soon as you get to the beach there you'll be amazed by the color of the sea and sand. The night life there is crazy, everywhere you go you'll have a great time. But there is much more in Cancun and its surroundings. it's going to take about 4 hours to get to Cancun from New York so for now, I opened up my phone and began to look for hotels and attractions to visit while I am there. So far, I'll be staying at a hotel called "ME Cancun" which is a four star hotel for $481 per night. The attractions I will also be visiting are Chichen Itza, Xel-Ha Park, and Cancun Water Museum. Cancun is basically an entire beach, I definitely know that I'm going to have loads of fun here. The flight time is only 3 hours left, so I decided to take a nap until I get there. A few hours later, I wake up, open my window curtain, and see a beach! That's how I immediately knew I was here already. When the plane landed, I took all my luggage from the rack, and went to the 'Arrivals' area. Afterwards, I exit the airport and called a taxi to go to the ME Cancun hotel. When I arrived at the hotel, I dropped off all luggage and began my first day at Cancun, Mexico!

Day One (Part Two:)
After dropping my luggage off, I felt like taking a tour around my hotel. I don't normally tour around the past hotels I've been at, but since Cancun is mostly filled with beaches, I want to see what the hotel would be like. My room had a very beautiful view of the beach, the service was really great, just everything at the hotel seemed perfect. There was about 7 bars, Jacuzzi, Beauty Salon, Fitness Centre and about four restaurants. After touring the hotel for a little bit, I began to walk to Chichen Itza which was a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya people of the Terminal Classic period. When I got there, I bought my ticket and walked around. My experience was amazing there. For me, it was really interesting to learn about Mayan history. It also had a pretty incredible Mayan structure. It felt amazing to be in the presence of the structure. I spent hours and hours at Chichen Itza. It was then time for me to go back to my hotel, so I walked back, ordered food from room service and slept right after,

Day Two:
I wake up at 10:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore the city of Cancun on my second day! I head down to the lobby first to eat breakfast. Today I will be visiting Xel-Ha Park which is an aquatic theme park. I'm planning on spending the entire day there, but it was quite far away from where my hotel was so I went to go take a taxi to get there. An hour later, I finally arrive and buy my ticket to enter. Xel-Ha Park. It was a great natural water park with a number of activities, tubing down river, snorkeling, zip lining, caves, and denotes. There are also other activities like swimming with the Dolphins. Dolphins are one of my favorite animals so I just had to swim with them! To swim with the dolphins was pretty expensive but it was definitely worth my time. Not only that, but I also went snorkeling in many great places. I think I stayed at Xel-Ha Park for about seven hours. It was just so much fun, I didn't want to leave. The weather was really hot so it just felt so nice to be swimming all day on a hot day. I called a taxi to go back to the hotel. After I came back, I ate dinner in the lounge, went back to my room, and slept after a long day.

Day Three:
I wake up at 11:00 a.m, brush my teeth and get ready to explore the city of Cancun on my last day. I head down to the lobby first to eat breakfast. Today, I will be visiting the Cancun Water Museum. I haven't bought any souvenirs from Cancun yet, so before I go to the museum, I'll go shopping for a bit for my friends, family and me. When that's finished, I go back to my hotel to drop off my shopping bags. Afterwards, I take a taxi to go to near the Museum. Since it's underwater, I had to take a boat ride to the museum. When I was at the Underwater museum, I had so much fun. I took a high speed boat ride to the museum, snorkeling tour, and swim underwater. It wasn't just an average snorkeling tour, you take a high speedboat ride out of Cancun and snorkel among 400 life-size underwater sculptures! The main body of the museum is called "The Silent Evolution" and consists of 400 life-size figures molded in pH neutral clay. After several hours, It was time to head back to the ME Cancun hotel. This is my last day at Cancun, Mexico and also the last day of my travelling trip. When I got back to the hotel, I ordered room service food, packed all my clothes into my luggage, set my alarm to 7:00 a.m., and went straight to sleep.

Day Four (Departure from Cancun, Mexico back to Toronto, Ontario, Canada):
I woke up at 7:00 a.m., same time my alarm woke me up. Today is the day is the day I'm finally going back home. I brushed my teeth, got ready, got all my luggage and headed downstairs to the lounge to eat breakfast. Afterwards, I called a taxi to go to the Cancun International Airport. When I arrived, I made my way to the 'Departing to Toronto' area, and lined up where people were to enter the plane. About half an hour later, I finally boarded the plane, and set my luggage on the rack. The past several countries were really fun and exciting for me. I really hope I can visit all of them again some time. To be completely honest, I didn't want to go back home, but I had to. My luggage was getting pretty heavy anyway with all the things I've bought from every country I've been to. I just had too much memorable moments at the past several countries, I feel that I want to re-live all of them. Hopefully I can visit all of them again when I get another opportunity to.
