Personalized Rundown of What to do in Cancun

For those that have come across some of my work concerning Cancun, it should come to no surprise that I am absolutely in love with the Mexican getaway location. No matter how much fun I've had on trips there, I'm always surprised to see that there is actually more stuff to do there than what I did myself and it makes me exponentially more excited thinking about a return trip. Follow the jump below to read about one writer's trip there and get excited to head there yourself.

Thereís no way Iím going to miss the chance go snorkelling over a Caribbean reef to watch green turtles at play. Even though Iím not a strong swimmer and have never actually been snorkelling. This is Mexico, I tell myself, the sea will be blissfully calm so if I donít go out too far Iíll be fine...

But Iím not. Even before we start. While all around me are sauntering down the beach swinging their masks, I need help. My flippers donít seem designed for a human foot, Iíve fastened my lifejacket wrongly and find my mask doesnít cover my nose.
