Cancun, Cozumel & the Yucatan - Cancun & Around (PDF Chapter)
This is the Cancún & Around chapter from Lonely Planet’s Cancun, Cozumal & the Yucatan guidebook.
Cancún is a tale of two cities. There’s the glitzy hotel zone with its white-sand beaches, unabashed party scene and seafood restaurants. Then there’s a taste of local flavor at, say, a neighborhood taco joint or nearby, undeveloped beach.
