Cancun is a coastal city in Mexico's easternmost state, Quintana Roo. It is the municipal seat of Benito Juárez municipality and a world renowned tourist resort. The average temperature in Cancun is 80° F with more than 240 days of sunshine, and rain is rare, with late August through early October being the rainy season. The beaches in Cancun Mexico are almost 100 percent limestone; the porous quality of the limestone makes for cool sand even under the intense tropical sun. Cancun is divided into two parts: The narrow 23-kilometer-long (14-mile) island section (Cancun Island) is lined with modern beachfront hotels surrounded by the Bahía de Mujeres (Bay of Women), the Caribbean Sea, and the Nichupte and Bojorquez lagoons. The mainland downtown commercial section (Cancun City), connected to the island by two bridges, has broad avenues lined with whitewashed shops, restaurants, and hotels.
