SPRING BREAK 2011 in Cancun will undoubtedly be the best year yet. Some people are happy to do nothing more during Spring Break than enjoy the phenomenal beaches and water, soaking up the sun after a long winter, frequenting beachside bars and pool-side parties when they have the inclination or energy.
Others may choose to take a day trip to the ancient Mayan ruins at Tulum or the Temple of Kukulcan at Chichen Itza, or take a cruise from Cancun to the waters off of Cozumel. The Great Mesoamerican Reef also offers exceptional snorkeling opportunities for those who don't want to go too deep. In Puerto Morelos (23 miles south of Cancœn) this reef hugs the coastline for 9 miles. It is second largest coral reef in the world. Go snorkeling or scuba diving and explore the largest dive site in the Western Hemisphere.
