Part of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, Cancun is rich in cultural influence and ripe with tropical nature. Before Cancun became a tourist town and before the Spanish occupation, the Yucatan Peninsula was inhabited and dominated by Mayan civilizations until most of the local sites were abandoned by the15th century.
Mexican culture is a hugely diverse domain that encompasses vast differences in identity. The culture in Mexico is a product of the process of blending of indigenous practices and traditions with the Spanish colonial presence that had such a profound impact on all aspects of life.
Many foods that originated in Mexico are popular worldwide, including avocadoes, chocolate and pumpkins. Mexico is known for its tequila, which is made from agave cactus that is well suited to the climate of central Mexico.
The official language spoken in Cancun is Spanish. Most of the Mexicans working in the tourism industry speak English. Many of the local indigenous people still speak Mayan as their first language and Spanish as their second, you will often hear them speaking Mayan amongst themselves.
