IMG_3705Cancun, Mexico. July 22, 2009 – World renowned travel expert, Pauline Frommer visited the beautiful beaches of Cancun and Puerto Morelos recently, as she promoted her book Pauline Frommer’s Cancun & the Yucatan: Spend Less See More.

While in Cancun, Frommer had the opportunity to take on a diverse range of activities that the destination has to offer such as swimming with the world’s largest fishes, whale sharks, which are in season during the months of May though September. She also took cooking lessons at the Ritz Carlton’s Culinary Institute, dove into some of the most amazing cenotes (sinkholes) and explored the underground rivers at Xcaret Park.  Frommer also participated in Delphinus Trek in Xel-Ha, the only place in the world where you can actually interact underwater with dolphins using your own unique breathing device, which allows you to breathe freely.  Besides spending time in Cancun, Frommer visited the pier within the charming fishing town of Puerto Morelos where she was able to sample typical Mexican cuisine.

“I had the most amazing time in Cancun! Swimming with whale sharks is an awe-inspiring experience—they’re the largest fish in the world, averaging about 40 feet in length. It’s an experience I will never forget,” said Frommer during a television interview today.  “Cancun has some amazing deals right now, making it the prefect destination for everyone-but especially families!” said Frommer.

During her visit, Frommer met with the Cancun Convention and Visitors Bureau officials, expert tour guides, Marine Biologist Kenneth Johnson and also visited hotels of different categories for visitors with all types of budgets.
