Mexico's Cancun can enchant watersports worshippers

13th May 2013

When it comes to watersports destinations, Mexico's Cancun is one of the first names that springs to mind for aquatic appreciators seeking specialist tours.

Even the most hyper traveller would find it impossible not to relax on the 14 miles of white powdery sands there. It is set against the backdrop of the spectacular Great Mesoamerican Reef, the world's second largest reef.

But the seductive crystal clear, warm waters of the Mexican Caribbean have more energetic pursuits in store for the more adventurous, making it a waterspouts enthusiast's dream.

Whether you want to windsurf, parasail, jetski or learn to scuba dive, Cancun is the place for you.

Tourists exhausted by all of this or with a less energetic bent can savour the succour of Cancun's cultural sites, including Mayan archaeological zones.

These number El Rey (Las Ruinas del Ray), located in the Hotel Zone, and El Meco, a more substantial site found on the mainland just outside the city limits on the road north to Punta Sam.

Cancun's watersports entice holidaymakers from all walks of life, especially from the world of celebrity.

Former Hear'Say singer Myleene Klass, 35, is one such star.

She took recently advantage of a boat trip to Cancun to enjoy snorkelling and a glimpse of the sea life's glorious array of colourful fish during a holiday with daughters Ava, five, and two-year-old Hero.
