Those in the know are already hailing Mexico’s Cancún as the new and better Miami. A paradise with turquoise waters, countless beaches of the finest sand, and a distinct entertainment culture. Cancún has many temptations, including a colourful street art cosmos and a unique street food culture.
A Great White Comes to Visit
The best way to discover the monumental works of art is to take a private street art tour. Spread out over almost a dozen blocks, you can learn more about the respective painting techniques and styles as well as their origin. Most of the paintings are grouped together in a housing estate on Avenida Bonampak in the centre of Cancún. Among the most famous is the ‘Translucent White Shark’, a huge painting of a great white shark created by the Austrian artist Nychos. The spectacular ‘Game Over’ mural by Spanish artist Spok Brillor shows a group of sea creatures in a chewing gum dispenser.
