Not too long ago—prior to the 1960’s— Cancun was home to approximately than 1,000 Mayan fishermen. Today, Cancun thrives as one of the most popular tourist destinations in Mexico. Who could resist a place where the sun shines no less than 240 days a year, where white sand beaches kiss the ground holding nearly 50,000 weddings annually? Sounds like paradise to us!
