What are the best things to do in Cancun?
1. Party the night away at Coco Bongo, Hotel Zone’s iconic A-list club. Think unlimited drinks, on-stage dancers, flying acrobats and celebrity DJs. Its unique show production of foam and high-tech videos make Coco Bongo extraordinarily memorable.
2. Uncover the mystery of Chichén Itzá, one of the new wonders of the world. This treasured UNESCO World Heritage Site draws in crowds during the Spring Equinox. Legend has it, that the light-and-shadow effect on the temple during this month, reveals a serpent god crawling out from the side of the pyramid.
3. Explore Xcaret, a remarkable water park and eco-archaeological site, set in the Mayan jungle. Take a boat ride on the underground river or indulge in a massage by the lagoon. But do not miss the Xcaret Mexico Espectacular, an impressive show with over 300 performers who re-enact key moments of Mexico’s turbulent history.
4. Take a trip on Xoximilco, a lively Mexican boat fiesta. Grab your friends for an unforgettable evening to experience the true essence of Mexico – including authentic tacos and salsa, live Mexican music, carnival games and an open bar with local beer, rum and tequila.
5. Discover The Underwater Museum of Art. Put on your snorkelling gear and dive down into the depths of the ocean to uncover impressive underwater sculptures. If diving isn’t your thing, you can explore the galleries from a glass-bottom boat. Either way, the collection displays an astounding array of lifelike sculptures.
Where are the best places to visit in Cancun?
Explore vibrant Fifth Avenue, which is packed with American boutiques, as well as quaint local arts and crafts shops. Ever dreamed of dining in a jungle? Aldea Corazon, is a hidden gem – with a cenote and small waterfall – claiming some of Mexico’s best tacos to boot.
It’s no secret that Cancun beaches are popular among tourists. Relax at Playa Mujeres, regarded by locals as one of the best places to visit in Cancun. The beach is famous for its aqua blue waters and endless golden sands, framed by waving palm trees. Why not soak up the Caribbean vibes by catamaran? Complete with a delicious picnic and copious amounts of cocktails to keep you cool.
Looking for a little more adventure? For a breathtaking experience, snorkel with adorable turtles in Akumal or kayak in the crystal clear waters of Dos Ojos Cenote (a naturally occurring sinkhole). It’s the world's largest underwater cave system and most visited double cave cenote in the Yucatan Peninsula.
