Cancun vs Acapulco – Mi Experiencia de Vida en Ambos Lugares

Escrito por Alejandro Vazquez, 1 de Junio 2018. De Acapulco a Cancun, Mexico.

Gracias a Dios he podido presenciar y vivir en Cancun y en Acapulco por varios años, esto me permite escribir esta redacción y compartirles mi opinión y experiencia a cerca de Cancun vs Acapulco.
Comenzamos por los años vividos.

Tengo 29 años, vivi en Acapulco desde la secundaria hasta la Universidad, cuando decidimos mudarnos a esta ciudad fue en el año si no mal recuerdo 1999, en ese entonces Acapulco lo veía como una ciudad Mágica increíble, con su belleza que aun tiene, los amigos y zonas para recurrir son lindas y placenteras, conocí muchas personas y la amabilidad y gratitud encontrada me la llevare toda la vida.

Estudie la Secundaria, preparatoria y Universidad (Ingeniería en Tecnologías de la Información)

El tiempo con los amigos saliendo de los estudios era increíble, nos íbamos a la playa a la hora que quisiéramos pues quedaba muy cerca, las noches saliendo de la Universidad es de muy buenos recuerdos!

Acapulco se vive y se disfruta al máximo. Pero …..

Yo quería mas, quería salir a la ciudad a enfrentar nuevos retos y mejores expectativas profesional y económicamente.

Salí a la ciudad de Mexico en el año 2011 en busca de prosperar y crecer como persona y profesionalmente, las circunstancias se dieron y logre consolidarmeen la ciudad encontrando profesionalismo y comodidad.

Vivía muy bien, no lo puedo negar me la pasaba muy muy bien! Los salarios a comparación de la costa son super bien pagados y valorados por las empresas, no tenia objeción alguna.
Lo único que detestaba por lo mismo de venir de un centro turístico y tranquilo era el horrible trafico y el estilo de vida laboral, pues en la ciudad no hay momento en la semana en que veas gente tranquila, todos estamos corriendo, a las prisas por no llegar tarde y perdiendo a veces hasta mas de 3 horas de tu vida en el trafico.
Yo ya no quería mas esto.

En un punto de mi vida, llego esa oportunidad, me ofrecieron trabajar en una empresa turística en Cancun, era una muy buena oportunidad y el ofrecimiento era bueno para mis oídos y sin pensarlo acepte. Cancun por Dios, quien no lo aceptaría (Cabe mencionar que no conocía Cancun), esto fue ya en el año 2014.

La anécdota: Viaje en coche durante 3 días por cuestiones fuera de nuestras manos, en ese entonces estaba todo el movimiento de los Ayotzinapa que tomaban las autopistas, en fin por este movimiento, el viaje fue de 3 días.
Legamos a Cancun al solo empezar a conocer y ver la ciudad y vivir, realmente me cambio la perspectiva, Cancun se volvió mi ciudad favorita, preferida, la gente, la tranquilidad, la armonía, la vida misma, es un estilo de vida completamente diferente al que se vive en otros sitios, es una vida amena, tranquila, de paz de sentirse bien con el alma, de alegría.
Radique aquí 1 año y me basto para darme cuenta que era la ciudad donde quería pasar el resto de mis días.

Como ciudad y diversión es totalmente increíble.
Tenia un club de motos en donde todos los viernes rodamos a playa del Carmen que esta a 40 min, íbamos a Tulum que queda a 1.40min, Isla Mujeres que esta a 30min en Ferry, Cozumel etc,
Tenia partido de futbol los Domingos y Sábados. Era algo que me llenaba completamente.

Por circunstancias laborales tuve que regresar a la ciudad de Mexico nuevamente, nada alegre con esta idea pero no tenia otra opción mas que afrontar el regreso y continuar el trabajo, dure 2 años mas en la ciudad. (2016-2017).

Yo soñaba con Cancun, soñaba con mi vida aquí no podía sacarme de la mente regresar, hasta que me decidí en volver en el año 2018, así sin mas decidido en regresar, sin opción de trabajo, sin seguridad de nada, solo siguiendo mi ímpetu, mis ganas y mi alma de querer volver a donde me sentí muy bien en mi vida, en armonía y claridad, tome mis cosas y realice el viaje de regreso a Cancun.

Cancun es un lugar maravilloso en todos los sentidos.
Que decir de las amistades que conocí, pues realice mas amistades y compañeros aquí que en la ciudad de Mexico. Claro esta, así como actividades pues la vida es muy tranquila y del trafico ni hablar, todo esta a 5 o 10 min.

Esto para mi, que venia de la ciudad de Mexico era un abrir y cerrar de ojos, puedo y viajo en bicicleta sin problema, distancias largas que va! Todo esta super cerca. Distancias largas en Mexico eran 1 hora o 2 horas, aquí en Cancun esas horas son pero para ir a otros lugares hermosos como Tulum o Playa del Carmen o Chichen Itza.

Cancun o Acapulco?!

Creo ya saben mi respuesta, Cancun totalmente.
Te maravillas siempre que sales a la calle! El calor en armonía con el aire fresco, es algo que no en muchas ciudades existe, mucho menos en Acapulco.
Y no es que le haga el feo a Acapulco pero en cuestión de conocer lugares y quedarte asombrado, Cancun no tiene comparación.

En cuestión de personas que he llegado a conocer, puedo decir que han sido de las mejores cosas que me han pasado en la vida. Me siento totalmente a gusto y tranquilo.
Cancun es un Paraiso.

Important Facts

  • The project, to be known as Gran Rueda Cancún, or Big Wheel Cancún, will be similar to the Chicago Centennial Wheel, the Hong Kong Observation Wheel and the Baku Wheel in Azerbaijan.
  • The Mayor of Cancun, Remberto Estrada Barba, described the wheel, as a “new world-class attraction that will soon become a must for the visitors”!
  • But it turns out that construction began without an approved environmental impact assessment. The firm had requested an exemption from that requirement from the federal Environment Secretariat (Semarnat).
  • But after evaluating the construction methods to be utilized the agency notified the firm in January that it could not be exempted because the wheel was to be erected in a coastal environment.
  • The Environment Secretariat also notified Profepa, the environmental protection agency.
  • In spite of that construction of the wheel has continued and is now 90% complete.

1. Know how to transport yourself from the airport

What to do when you arrive to CancunAt Cancun Airport, you will find on each corner all kind of vendors who want to take you to your hotel. But if you want to SAVE MONEY AND TIME waiting to make your reservation there, I suggest you book your transportation ONLINE before traveling.
If you are traveling with family or friends, the best way is to book a private shuttle to take all of you to your hotel or stay without delays. Some of these shuttles make a quick stop at a convenience store in case you want something to drink along the way.

What you can do at Isla Mujeres is a day at the beach, travel around the island on a golf cart and spend the night in one of the many bars or clubs. Isla Mujeres sunsets are unforgettable.

-Tulum: In my opinion, Tulum is one of the best beaches and destinations of Cancun I visited. This is an ecological destination where in the evening, darkness let you see the starry sky. I recommend you book a hotel at the sea shore and close to the restaurants where you can enjoy a delicious dinner with music and shows.

-Scuba Diving: If you want to feel what is to live in the World of Nemo, you must dive in Cancun. It has coral reefs of all colors and exotic fish.

I suppose that you want to taste the best tacos in Cancun. I recommend you to go to Cancun Downtown (CENTRO DE CANCUN). There are places that are open until dawn in case you have no time. My recommendation is to go to La Resabrosa or Los Tarascos, they are located in AVE. TULUM. You can take a bus from your hotel to Cancun Downtown and then a taxi to the restaurant.

Dolphins

They are among the most intelligent species that inhabit the planet. They are relatively close to the coast and often interact with humans. Dolphins are often regarded as one of the most intelligent animals on the planet. Comparison of intelligence between different species is complicated by, among other things, to differences in the sensory apparatus, response modes and nature of cognition. However, the behavior of dolphins has been studied extensively, both in captivity and in the wild. delfines-piscina The appearances of dolphins in mythology and legends are numerous and attest to the relationship between humans and dolphins since antiquity. Greek mythology tells that these marine mammals before dolphins were men, particularly pirates who tried to sell the god Dionysus as a slave and this punishment made them such cetaceans, and the same civilization god Poseidon exercised dominion over water and the sea was always represented with its characteristic trident and surrounded by dolphins. According to another legend, Poseidon persuaded Amphitrite to marry him sending a dolphin. delfines1 The intelligence of dolphins is also used by the army with military dolphin called. There is a Navy program in which marine mammals are trained to detect mines, protect military facilities and attack enemy forces in the United States. This program exists since the 60s, and he trained, among other mammals, killer whales, false killer whales, bottlenose dolphins, common, narrow snout and pilot whales and Risso. Currently, many dolphins (particularly bottlenose dolphins and orcas) are trained to participate in shows at zoos and water parks. Taking advantage of his intelligence and skills, these dolphins are trained to obey their caregivers during intensive training, always in exchange for food. Among the exercises you perform a trained dolphin leaps, pirouettes in the air, ground movements and movements platforms tail moving back are included.

Whalesharks

Whalesharks inhabits the warm oceans and seas, near the tropics. They are believed as pelagic fish, but in certain seasons migrate long distances to coastal areas like Ningaloo Reef in Western Australia, Utila in Honduras, Donsol and Batangas in the Philippines, the island of Holbox in the state of Quintana Roo, Yucatan peninsulas and Baja California, Mexico, the islands of Zanzibar, off the coast of Tanzania, Coiba and the Pearl Islands in Panamá. Is also possible to see them near the coast, entering lagoons or coral atolls, and near the mouths or rivers. Usually remain within ± 30 ° latitude, and at a depth of 700 meters. They may usually solitary act, but occasionally form groups to feed in areas with large concentrations of food. The males can be found in most different places, while females prefer to stay in more specific places.

This species, despite its huge size, is not danger for humans. It is a widely cited example to fame with sharks devouring people. Actually, they are quite affectionate, and often playful with divers. There are even reports, though unconfirmed, whale sharks that come to the surface face up to the diver you scratch his belly and removes parasites.
