Preparing your trip to Cancun: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

Cancun 1. Tourists, who plan to spend most of their free time in the beach, should definitely not forget to use protection from the sun. In summer it’s very easy to get burned even during an ordinary walk.
2. Don’t forget to take a special guide in one of tourist offices. The guide contains information about all important sights of not only the city but also its suburbs. In addition, such guidebooks usually suggest the most popular entertainment facilities and shopping centers.
3. Experienced travelers usually advise to make excursions in the city on your own as the services of travel agencies in Cancun are very expensive. It is better to rent a car or hire a taxi for the whole day. The cost of taxi services for 12 - 15 hours will be no more than US$300, and a driver will take clients to all interesting sights, including places of interest located outside the city.
4. One can find a taxi by booking it by phone or "catching" a free car on the road. The taxis that park near hotels usually have the most expensive rates, so budget travelers should catch cars away from hotels.
5. Bus remains the most popular form of public transport. The cost of a ride is about US$ 0.5. Buses ply along the main streets of the city starting from early in the morning till late at night. As a rule, buses stop on request only. In order to stop a bus, you will need to raise your hand. Copyright
6. There are really many car rental offices in the city. In order to rent a car, tourists will need a driving license of the international standard and a credit card for deposit purposes. The cost of rent depends on the make of the vehicle selected and the term of rent.
7. Many travelers prefer to rent scooters and motorcycles as they are really simple to navigate through narrow streets of the city. Traveling on a scooter outside the city is not recommended. The reason for this is in roads. The majority of roads in the country are made of concrete, and so they become very slippery even after a small rain. Riding a motorcycle on them is very dangerous.
Del Rey ruins are the only historic site of Cancun. The ruins discovered by archaeologists make it clear that the first settlement on the site of the city appeared back to prehistoric times. … Open
8. The best way to shop for souvenirs is to go to one of local markets. The prices for various goods are much more attractive there comparing to shopping malls. Local sellers accept payments in the national currency and are usually very cautious to large denomination banknotes.
