What would your perfect day in Cancun be like? We think it might go something like this...

After sleeping in, a late breakfast, or better yet, a delicious Mexican brunch, and maybe a mimosa.

Mexican breakfast

Next, let's head to the beach as the morning sun rises towards it's peak.

That's enough relaxing...how about parasailing?

Hungry again. How does ceviche and cerveza on the beach sound?

More sunbathing, now how about a dip in the pool?

After a lovely massage...

the sun is setting...

so that must mean it's time for a romantic candlelight dinner.

Then, dance the night away!

What would your perfect day in Cancun consist of?

    I wish to bury my feet,
    in the white sandy beach,
    to swim lesuirely in water so blue,
    under a sky brillant and azure too!

    It’s a place known to all, simply as Cancun.
