Cancun is located in the Quintana Roo state on the Yucatan channel which separates Mexico from the island of Cuba. The region is a popular destination for scuba diving adventures and divers can dive beneath the surface of turquoise ocean waters to explore the stunning colourful barrier reef.
The region is set to receive even more visitors this year and holiday bookings to Cancun have increased as intrigued travellers head to the area to find out more about the apocalyptic prophecies that predict the world will end on 21st December, 2012.
A wide selection of activities and events will take place over the next few months in Cancun, Tulum and Riviera Maya to mark the “end of the world”.
