Cancun Information Guide
Cancun is located in Quintana Roo and was actually the dream of a Mexican banker named Enrique Savignac. The banker and his investors envisioned
an Mexican vacation city that would be unparalleled for Mexico. They started construction in 1968 and the city has since grown to be the premier vacation spot in Mexico. It is a strip of 15 miles of golden sand beaches filled with 5 star hotels.
