Cancun and Cozumel, the best of the Caribbean Sea

The Caribbean Sea is one of the most resourceful areas on the globe, in terms of tourist destinations and activities. In case you are planning to take a trip to one of the local resorts, then you should choose a dedicated company, such as Olympus Tours, to organize your journey. The Yucatan peninsula is extremely popular, since it consists in resorts such as Cancun or Cozumel, extremely appealing to visitors due to their landscapes, luxurious facilities and various water activities.


In spite of the fact that it is not as developed as other regions from the Caribbean, Cozumel is still a great place to be if you love water sports. The resort is best known for its multiple ship cruises and scuba diving possibilities, becoming one of the world’s most important locations for diving lovers. Besides traditional diving, Cozumel vacations often consist in visits to the Mesoamerican Reef and the Museo Subacuático de Arte, which has multiple unique submerged sculptures. In addition to the intensive diving activity happening in the region, you can also visit the beautiful eco-park named Chankanaab, which surrounds the lagoon and has a wide variety of sea creatures, such as dolphins, manatees and sea turtles. The island of Cozumel is bordered by great natural beaches, whose relief varies from powdery sands to sharp edges. If you want to lie in the sun and relax, then you should choose the plain ones, while in case you are looking for spectacular views, then you should go for a rocky beach. Whether you are looking for a romantic destination or an adventurous one, then Cozumel is the ideal choice, since it has both of these. Furthermore, it has the mild climate of the Caribbean region during the whole year, not to mention the rich vegetation and abundant nightlife.


Cancun is by far one of the most popular tourist destinations not only in the Caribbean Sea, but also around the world. Annually, millions of international tourists come to spend their holidays here, not only because of the powdery beaches, beautiful waters and incredible parties, but also because of the cultural background of this region. Cancun tour packages are extremely complex, and consist in all sorts of facilities, from luxurious accommodation to visits to some of the most eccentric attractions of the area, the Maya ruins. These are remains of ancient Mayan buildings, which attract people die to their mystery and complexity. Chichen Itza, Coba and Tulum are only some of the most popular ruins that you should not miss if you reach the Yucatan Peninsula. Each of these has had a particular purpose, and while some were aimed to protect the city from pirates’ attacks, others were considered sacred locations for religious rituals. What is even more impressing is the fact that they were built in ancient times, without the use of performing pieces of equipment, only by using manual tools. It is well known that the Maya civilization had a great interest for astronomy and mathematics, and this can be easily noticed if you see the remains of their buildings.
