Beautiful turquoise water and sandy white beaches make Cancun a favorite getaway for many people but there is so much more to do there. Whether you’re on spring break, a honeymoon or family vacation, there’s a side of Cancun you’ll find that is perfect for you. Read on to see some of our favorite ways to experience Cancun.
For the adventurers
If you love a good adrenaline rush or just love being in the great outdoors, you’ll love seeing Cancun. You’ll find many water sports to enjoy but parasailing over the ocean will be especially fun for those of you who are adventurers. Expect to pay between $30 to $40 for a parasailing adventure. Book through Complete Getaways and we can take care of booking adventures like this for you.
If you’d rather be closer to land, travel to Isa de Mujeres which is just 10 minutes away by boat from Cancun to go snorkeling. It’s an excellent place to enjoy for a day or half day and has especially beautiful beaches to enjoy.
For the honeymooners
You’ll want to check out Tulum which is known for its ancient ruins. It was one the most important commercial trading ports built by the Maya. The ruins are located on a cliff top overlooking the Caribbean Sea so after your view them, you’ll have plenty of time to take a romantic walk on the beach together. The Hard Rock Hotel Cancun offers the Tulum Express tour option and if you stay there you can use your resort credits toward booking your tour.
If it’s especially hot, cool off at the Museo Maya de Cancun where you’ll see over 400 artifacts on display. You’ll see a variety of museum pieces including sculptures, ceramics and jewelry. Your ticket also includes access to the adjoining San Miguelito archaeological site.
Whether you’ve got toddlers or teens, you’ll want to see Ventura Park. If you want to enjoy the park with just your spouse, you can get a drinks package which includes unlimited alcohol all day for $10 extra. Book your tickets on the website at least three to four days in advance and save up to 50% off.
They have many packages to choose from but the Ventura Unlimited is an especially good value. You’ll get access to the waterpark and water slides, unlimited food and alcoholic drinks at the bars there, access to the mini theme park with rides for younger children, access to the go-kart racing, 3 ziplines, bungee jumping, a virtual reality room, plus the free shuttle.
We also recommend the boat ride to Isla Mujeres to see Dolphin Discovery where you can swim with dolphins. You might even receive a hug or kiss from them too!
You’ll also want to visit the Interactive Aquarium of Cancun which will let you get up close with marine animals. You can feed sharks, swim with dolphins, touch starfish, pet the turtles and much more.
As you can see, Cancun is the perfect destination to see no matter who you will be exploring with on your trip. When you’re ready to plan a trip there, we’ll help you find the best flights and accommodations that suite your budget and trip goals.
