Cancún is a world-renowned city located in the Mexican state of Quintana Roo, to the southeast of the country. It is a heavily-popular beach travel destination for people from all over the world, due to its beautiful beaches and blueish-green water. It is right on the Caribbean Sea, and part of the Yucatán Peninsula. The city is a good example of a polarization of wealth in the country; the beaches attract the rich and wealthy, while the inner city shows conspicuously that the wealth obtained from tourism is not distributed throughout.
