When the Mayans named Cancun the “golden snake” they were referring to this 15 mile sliver of land separating the ocean from the Nichupte Lagoon. The Isla forms the shape of a backwards seven and is linked to the mainland by short two bridges. The main road, Avenida Kukulkan, runs the length of the hotel zone, crowded with luxury resorts, high rise condos, restaurants and shopping plazas. Locals spend dollars, speak English and enjoy all the conveniences of an American city with the added benefit of near perfect weather and a world class beach. Many snowbirds enjoy the hassle free living part of the year and healthy profits the other half, thanks to a robust rental market. Most permanent residents, however, live in downtown due to the lower cost of living.
