As for sleep, there is no choice between a four-star hotel and a five-star hotel… unless you leave the resort and choose one of the magnificent surrounding villages.
The archaeological site of El Rey
If Cancun is synonymous with crazy parties and frivolity, it is also a place with a long history. Its relics of the remains of the Maya before Columbus tell us about the local population in post-classic times. On the island of El Rey, there are 47 buildings with various functions, but most of them consist of stone platforms. After discovering a tomb that was given noble status by archaeologists, he named it “El Rey” (king). A must visit in Cancun!
Popular Arts Museum
Another proof of the cultural richness of Cancun is that the Museum of Popular Art is a modest medium-sized building, but it houses a variety of works related to the art of Mexicans local. The collection includes various objects such as traditional Indian costumes, wooden toys, carnival masks, ancient musical instruments and objects of religious worship. There is also the famous tree of life, these ceramics are typical representatives of the local culture and often represent the view of the Bible.
The Cancun Interactive Aquarium is located in the center of the La Isla Mall. Here you can observe local marine animals including sharks, turtles (you can hand feed them), sea lions or dolphins. There are also less attractive species, such as piranhas or scorpionfish. But the purpose of this tour is to share swimming time with the dolphins or to touch the mantas with your fingers. People have different opinions about this place because it is expensive and there is very little space for animals to play. It’s yours…
Watch the Dolphins at Playa Delfines
For lovers of natural landscapes and large-scale spectacles, we do not recommend a slight detour to Playa Delfines. By bus or taxi, the journey takes 25 to 45 minutes, worth the detour! During your free time, you can enjoy the magnificent view of the Caribbean Sea on the beach and see our dolphin friends playing with each other and even with the local surfers! Cancun is definitely one of the unique experiences to do!
If you’re tired of the hustle and bustle of the mainland, or if you’ve finished all the work in Cancun, why not head out to sea? Isla Mujeres is made for that! Departing from the port of Cancun, you can reach the coast in a few minutes, and the pace of life is slow, which is the opposite of the madness of Cancun. To enjoy more of the charm of the island, we recommend that you rent a golf cart. A funky and idyllic trip guaranteed!
Cancun’s chichen Itza
Without a day trip to Chichén Itzá, visiting Cancún cannot be completed. The date is between 750 and 1200 AD. JC Chichén Itzá was an important religious, commercial and political center of the Maya civilization. The remains installed here testify to the deep knowledge of the Mayas in architecture and astronomy. The important work not to be missed is El Castillo, an extraordinary pyramid dedicated to the feathered serpent god (Kukulkan), a temple of warriors, a large stadium, a wall of skulls, an observatory and a sacred tomb.
Tulum is a famous visit to Cancun, not only for its Mayan ruins, but also for having one of the best beaches in Mexico. The Mayan ruins of Tulum were once an important commercial and ceremonial center, made up of several different structures and well worth a visit. The remains perched on a cliff overlooking the picturesque white sand beach and blue-green water. This beach is a privileged place for photographers and is also suitable for divers and kitesurfers. Cenotes Park is close to ruins and beaches, where you can explore some of the most incredible caves and cenotes in the world.
