Cancun—a Hip Place for Teens!

    Last year my family vacationed in Cancun, Mexico, located at the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula and surrounded by the Caribbean Sea. The area is beautiful. It’s a fun place for teenagers – I should know, I’m 13.
    Cancun has lots of activities for teens at relatively cheap prices. If you like speed, you can rent a jet ski. Water splashing in your face and wind blowing through your hair is great fun. A jet ski rents for $50 per hour.
    The variety of fish in the waters off Cancun is amazing. If you want to “swim with the fish” then you’ve come to the right place. An all day scuba or snorkel boat trip is $60.
    If you’re the athletic type, then try volleyball. You can play in your swimsuit under the sun, with your friends, and at no cost. Volleyball is a favorite Mexican pastime.
    I’m a bargain shopper and Cancun’s flea markets are the place for me. They have all kinds of great buys. I bought a puka shell necklace for only $15. If you’re a brand name shopper then the outdoor markets have plenty to buy.
    You can “hang 10” in the surfing waves off shore. It seems that every boy and girl in Cancun surfs. The green-blue water will make you want to jump right in. The white-sandy beaches are clean and inviting.
    How would you like to meet a dolphin? They are so much fun. You can swim with the dolphins, teach them tricks, and even give them a kiss. For $100, you can play with the dolphins for 2 hours.
    You won’t hear “clip-clop, clip-clop” when you’re riding a horse on the beach. The tranquility of it all is awesome. It’s very cool when you’re on top of a horse galloping through the surf.
    Parasailing over the ocean is an awesome experience, one that you’ll always remember. My dad agreed, that when in Cancun you should go parasailing.
    While relaxing at your hotel’s beach or pool, cabana boys serve you food and drink. And, there’s no need for money, just charge it to your room.
    Cancun is a great place to vacation, especially with teenagers. I loved it!
