12 Hours in Cancun

I spent 12 hours in Cancun on my way to Cuba and got to see one of my closest friends.

The original plan was to stop by Mexico City for a day but plans changed a bit last minute, and I ended up getting into Mexico City, flying to Cancun, and then flying back to Mexico City to catch my plane to Havana.

The schedule was a bit hectic, but I hadn't been back to Cancun since spring break in college, and was glad I got to spend some time enjoying the beautiful beach in Cancun.

 

For the perfect day in Cancun, take this advice from my friend Alberto, who grew up in Cancun:

Go to the beach (see photos from my day at Playa Delfines, below)
Then go for an afternoon massage at Nizuc. Arrive an hour before your massage so you can take advantage of their thermal experience
Finish the day off with a sunset dinner at Porfirios. Start with the tiradito and share the lechón
