The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Cancun I






In the fall of 1968, the creation of the resort city of Cancun was nothing but a gleam in the eye of a young Mexican banker named Enrique Savignac. The young banker and a small group of optimists searched every inch of the exotic Mexican coastline in search of the ideal spot to built their vacation paradise.

The lost civilization of Quintana Roo was nominated the future location where the young banker's dream would soon become a reality. This thin sandy strip of land was basically molded and shaped by hand to create 15 miles of modern five star hotels along the white sandy shore that have been enticing the world ever since. Cancun has grown to be one of the most renowned resorts in the world

Cancun has a big international airport and you can get cheap flight from many cities of the world with a none stop flight, competitive airfares year round on regular and charter airlines. If your cheap airfare comes with 3 or 4 nights in a Cancun Hotel, snap it up. Extend your ticket and spend at least 3 days exploring the rest of the Yucatan Peninsula.

Then you can rent a car or take a bus, and head South and see the best of Mexico's Caribbean coast.,Virgin beaches, Mayan Ruins, beautiful reefs, cenotes and many natural wonders as Garrafon in Isla Mujeres, Xcaret and Xel-ha.
Cancun is a wonderful resort town with a lot to offer. It is a top location for a big city, shopping and partying,a wonderful experience. It is great for a little weekend get away - stay at a nice five star hotel, drink margaritas, dance at the night clubs, play, the golf courses, dineout, and relax or shop during the day.

Cancun offers a large variety of aquatic sports and tours, as the pirate night, the jungle tour, snorkeling, diving, fishing, parasailing, almost everything.
Cancun is the preferred place for high school and college Spring Break students, and they have a huge Spring jazz festival and many concerts, special events and Dj´s in some night clubs like the City . You will have a guaranteed good time, a splendid vacation.

Really good photos, hard to imagine that these very interesting images are from Cancun. I want a copy of the Volcano pic and of the doll one. Sofia

Abe, Sofia, thank you so much for your kind words.

Great photos and information re the formation of Cancun. Despite the amazingly blue sea and wonderful sand, I don't find Cancun as enticing as you. I prefer something that is less resorty and more authentic Mexican, like Mazatlan. But thanks for the history!
