Cancun is a city in mexico.
Before Cancún was Cancún, it used to be called Ekab, which means Black Earth. The word Cancún is actually Mayan, it means the snake pit or nest of serpents. Cancun is home to 14 pristine miles of white sand beaches, and they’re all public! Hotel properties can put chairs, thatched roofs and other amenities on the beach but it’s for their guests only. The beach is open to everyone.
Cancun underwater museum
In 2009 a monumental underwater museum called MUSA (Museo Subacuático de Arte) was formed in the waters surrounding Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Punta Nizuc. The project founded by Jaime Gonzalez Cano of The National Marine Park, Roberto Diaz of The Cancun Nautical Association and Jason deCaires Taylor consists of over 500 permanent life-size sculptures and is one of the largest and most ambitious underwater artificial art attractions in the world.
