Cancun is one of the most popular destinations in the world for tourism and medical travel with over 3 million annual visitors and around 4,500 treatments and surgeries available in 40 private clinics. Medical treatments are usually about 50-70% cheaper than in the US and no one has to wait for their surgery. It is usual for doctors and surgeons in Costa Rica hospitals to have gained experience, certifications or trainings from the USA.
Cancun is typically known for its 14 miles of serene white beaches, its crystal-clear waters and its night life. There is also so much more. Resting on the northeast corner of the Yucatan Peninsula in the state of Quintana Roo, Cancun was a part of the ancient Mayan civilization and is still considered the gateway to the Mayan world.
Cancun has the distinction of being the one Caribbean destination with the infrastructure, modern amenities (spruced up in 2006) and service philosophy to rival leisure destinations worldwide. Unlike many other parts of the Caribbean and Mexico, Cancun was built for tourism, and continues to meet the needs of its annual visitors. Cancun delivers to travelers the best of many worlds: the Caribbean and Mexico; modern and ancient; action packed and laid back. Cancun is unequaled in its ability to offer cultural treasures, natural beauty, infinite activities and North American-style conveniences.

A very safe city
Cancun is safe and much less dangerous than certain American cities. Most of the violence-plagued cities such as Acapulco and Monterrey have a lot to do with public opinion. Yet, these towns are on the other side of Cancun. People who stay within the Americanized city such as Cancun are safe.
