The fact that almost half of the tourism revenue in Mexico is generated in Cancun speaks for itself.Cancun was discovered in the 17th century and had only 3 residents. The development started in 1970 and today Cancun has nearly one million residents and hundreds of hotels.

The white sand beaches are simply breathtaking, and it is no wonder why many Americans choose this premium Mexican city as their summer vacation spot. Destination weddings in Cancun are also considered to be very popular. There are over 40,000 wedding ceremonies annually.
