Transcript of CANCUN, MEXICO
*Back in the early '50s, Cancun was a small island home to three caretakers of a coconut plantation and small Pre-Columbian ruins of the Maya civilization.
*Then the government of Mexico decided to develop a tourist resort, which was originally financed by a USD $27 million loan from the Inter-American Development Bank. A causeway was built linking Cancun to the mainland, and around the same time Cancun International Airport was built.
*Originally known as Ekab ("Black Earth"), what is now the northern district of the state of Quintana Roo was thickly populated by people who spoke the language now known as Maya when the Spanish arrived There are about 150 hotels in Cancun with more than 24,000 rooms and 380 restaurants.
