Cancún is a city of international tourism development certified by the World Tourism Organization located on the northeast coast of Quintana Roo in southern Mexico. It has undergone a comprehensive transformation from being a fisherman's island surrounded by virgin forest and unknown shores to being one of the two most renowned Mexican resorts, along with Acapulco. The World Tourism Organization, through its foundation UNWTO-Themis, awarded the Best of the Best "for excellence and good governance" to the Trust for Tourism Promotion of Cancun on February 3, 2007.

Cancún is also the site of the Por La Libre and other open water swims and the Cancun Underwater Museum and an annual FINA 10km Marathon Swimming World Cup race that draws the top open water swimmers in the world.
