As someone who has had the good fortune of vacationing in Cancun several times (check out this panorama and find out how I went vertical with my panoramas for a dramatic shot from our last visit), it came as no surprise that this week’s most popular “beach pic of the day” was of the beaches that lines this western Caribbean paradise in Mexico. While the over-the-top vibe of Cancun might not be for everyone, it’s hard to argue with the sheer beauty of its beaches. Sand as white and powdery fine as you’ll find elsewhere in the Caribbean contrasted by the “can’t believe it’s this blue” water make it a favorite destination for those of us who can tolerate its hectic pace. And with the abundance of all-inclusive options, it makes for an ideal family escape, especially considering it’s about a three hour non-stop flight from O’Hare in Chicago.
