In the fall of 1968, the creation of the resort city of Cancun was nothing but a gleam in the eye of a young Mexican banker named Enrique Savignac. The young banker and a small group of optimists searched every inch of the exotic Mexican coastline in search of the ideal spot to built their vacation paradise. The lost civilization of Quintana Roo was nominated the future location where the young banker's dream would soon become a reality. This thin sandy strip of land was basically molded and shaped by hand to create 15 miles of modern five star hotels along the white sandy shore that have been enticing the world ever since. Cancun has grown to be one of the most renowned resorts in the world.
