Travel Happiness: Cancun
Cancun: Lights, camera, sizzle-this at what Cancun's all about. Yet even though it's long been associated with rowdy spin breakers, this almost famous of resort destinations is stylish and always open to possibilities. Its white-sand beaches, all-night-long clubs and array of entertainment options have made Cancun, and indeed, the whole state of Quintana Roo, a favorite among travelers.
Cancun is the ideal place in which to just escape from the daily grind, with posh spas, top-tier accommodations. Le Blanc Spa Resort is presently leading the pack on both counts and the very best brand names that money can buy. But once you step away from its famed Hotel Zone, it also has a rainbow of action-packed alternatives for the wild at heart: swimming with dolphins, parachuting, windsurfing, and more. There is also Isla Mujeres, a crisp sliver of an island where you can snorkel the clear waters of El Garrafon National Park; it's just a 15-minute boat ride from Cancun.
Season tip: The 2007 Cancun BG Triathlon World Cup takes place November 3, 2007.
