Cancun is on the northeastern tip of the Yucatán peninsula, on the Caribbean sea, in the state of Quintana Roo. It has a gay scene, but is outshone by its neighbor Playa del Carmen, which has a more established gay scene.
It is probable that the name Cancun came from the Mayan name ‘kaan kun’, which means ‘Nest of snakes’!
Cancun has a tropical climate, with more comfortable conditions from November to February. March and April are hotter but drier. It is hottest from May to October.
Cancun, Quintana Roo, Mexico, Central America.
