Finding fun things to do in Cancun is a literal breeze – whether you are vacationing solo, with a partner or even with your entire family. There are many reasons why Cancun continues to be a tourist hotspot year after year. It is for precisely this reason that, as you prepare to visit Cancun, it can be so helpful to do a little scouting in advance for the activities you most want to experience. These six fun activities can get your vacation off to a great start.
U.S. News and World Report includes Playa Tortuga in its top list of Cancun attractions for several reasons. Perhaps one of the most compelling reasons is simply that Playa Tortuga (literally translated as “turtle beach”) is largely considered a locals-only spot. So if you want to see and fall in love with the Cancun the locals call home, this is a great place to do it.
Chitchen Itza routinely makes the top “to see and do” lists for vacationers in search of romance for a reason. The site has Mayan origins and features a large monument, archeological ruins and even a lovely blue lagoon along the way. The monument is a UNESCO World Heritage site and is included in the list of seven new wonders of the world, which makes it a must-see during your trip.
Isla Mujeres, or the “Island of Women,” is a sleepy little island located less than 10 miles from the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula. The island itself is a fairly well kept secret, which is ideal for its large local population of sea turtles as well as local residents. It is easy to get to and from the island by ferry.
Very few tourists choose to leave Cancun without indulging in the ultimate vacation experience – swimming with the dolphins. If this describes you, be sure to add Dolphin Dreams to your to-do list. You can choose from several different themed dolphin-centric adventures so your whole family will be able to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Dolphin Dreams operates several different parks so you can find the one that is most accessible to where you will be staying on Cancun.
The Interactive Aquarium
It just stands to reason that Cancun would have a fabulous aquarium – and it certainly does. This is a favorite stop for families in particular, because the aquarium lives up to its name and then some by offering touch tanks, dolphin feedings and even shark feedings. Visiting the aquarium helps you learn more about the native wildlife that makes Cancun so special.
“Dolphin Beach” is a well known beach in Cancun for those who want to escape the crowds and simply drink in the area’s natural beauty. As a bonus, the beach is also easy to get to and parking is free.
With these six amazing adventures heading up your vacation to-see list, you will be full of great memories by the time your Cancun vacation concludes.
