Cancun, the sun-kissed siren of the Caribbean, has broken her own record, luring in a whopping 32.7 million air passengers in 2023 – a 7.9% jump from the previous year's already impressive 30.3 million. Over 20 million international sunseekers and 12 million domestic beach bums flocked to her shores, proving her irresistible charm remains undimmed.
But Cancun's not just about bronzing bodies and piña coladas (though there's plenty of that too). The city's mayor, Ana Patricia Peralta de la Peña, beamed with pride, crediting the achievement to the “Cancun magic” – a potent blend of friendly locals, top-notch service, and a sprinkle of something extra special that keeps tourists coming back for more. Maybe it's the mischievous dolphins that enjoy playing tag with jet skis, or the iguanas who sunbathe like tiny, scaly celebrities. Whatever it is, it works.
