Cancun means “Snake Nest” in the Mayan language and was a jungle space originally occupied by the Itzaes, a Mayan group that discovered the beauty of this place and built several ceremonial and astrological observation centers throughout the area. After the Spanish conquest, Cancuén Island or Punta Kancune, was first registered in 1776 by the Spanish cartographer Juan de Dios González.

In 1972, the first stone of the Bojórquez hotel was laid. Currently, Cancun has an infrastructure of almost 36,000 hotel rooms of different categories and more than 70,000 square meters of space available for congresses and conventions. For the year of 1973 the international airport of Cancun is inaugurated, with a runway in what is now Kabah Avenue and a control tower made of sticks and palm.
