You have to visit one of the seven wonders of the world when you are passing through the city of Cancun. The occasion might not present itself again so it is strongly advised to go see this jewel of the Mexican civilization between two nights out. Chichen Itza is a city lost in the middle of the Yucatan Forest, located an hour drive from Cancun. You can book the excursion directly on spot, at your hotel or in the streets of Cancun, where you can not miss the salesmen. Several choices will be possible for you (including or excluding meals, with detour in the famous Cenote of Ikk Kill or not).
➡️ Isla Mujeres
Isla Mujeres is a small paradise island located right in front of Cancun, accessible by boat in just 20 minutes, with rotations all day long, until the evening. The “women’s island” is an unmissable excursion, especially since the only cost is transportation. The island is considered as one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean, full of charm and authenticity. It’s the perfect choice to get away from the noise and activity of Cancun. Upon arrival on the island, you can either stay near the harbor, with its beautiful beach where shops, restaurants and bars abound. Or, you can visit the island for the best of options, renting golf carts or scooters upon arrival. The price of the day rental is affordable and you can go with your friends and find the best spots that the island is hiding. When you arrive at the harbor of Isla Mujeres, you will be in the heart of the city. On your left, you will find the best beaches to rest from last night’s party. On your right, you will go to the trails of the island and discover the authenticity of the houses. At the end, you will find the best spot of the island. At the top of a cliff, there will be a restaurant – bar, with a breathtaking view of Cancun and its turquoise waters. You will surely remember this drink as one of the best memories of your vacation.
The archaeological site of Tulum is an ancient Mayan city. It has the distinction of being the only one located by the sea. Tulum offers without doubt the best photo spot of all the region, known worldwide. The vestige of a temple, at the edge of a cliff, along its turquoise water. The color mix is impressive. For the historical part, it is there that the Mayans saw for the first time the Spanish ships. You will also have the opportunity to bathe, just below the temple, in one of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Xcaret is now a must see in the region. Indeed, Xcaret is both a natural reserve, archaeological site and amusement park where activities abound. This is the flagship place where swimming with dolphins is practiced. It is also possible to feed sharks in the Caribbean Sea. Stroll through the tropical jungle between sacred Mayan trees and relics, you will arrive at the park’s flagship attraction. An impressive underground river 800m long, where swimming is allowed. An incredible experience in crystal clear waters and underground caves where light pierces the walls. Excursion possible from your hotel or vendors in the streets of Cancun.
