6 Unique Things to Do in Cancun

Must do's in Cancun

Sunshine holidays in Cancun offer plenty of things to do in and around your resort. However, you won’t want to miss the “real” Cancun by booking some fun tours and activities beyond “The Strip”.

1. Downtown Cancun Activities

Hop on the local bus and head to downtown Cancun for some retail therapy in the charming old town. Hang out for dinner and drinks at very affordable prices. You can also visit local archaeological ruins at El Rey in the Hotel Zone or El Meco in North Cancun.

2. Visit Isla Mujeres

Cancun is just a short boat ride from Isla Mujeres, a peaceful traffic-free island with beaches, shops and a mayan temple. It’s a perfect day trip from Cancun.

3. See the Famous Pink Lakes at Rio Lagartos

Book an all-inclusive tour to Rio Lagartos National Parks. Relax on the van, eat lunch and take a boat trip with a fun local guide. Learn what makes the extraordinary Las Coloradas Salt Lakes so pink, and take stunning photos of the flocks of flamingos that live there.

4. Swim with Whale Sharks!

During the summer, one of the most unusual things to do in Cancun is swim with whale sharks. This once-in-a-lifetime experience is part of a private tour as you swim with the biggest fish in the ocean.

5. Explore Mayan Ruins near Cancun

Take a tour to Chichen Itza or the Tulum Ruins direct from your Cancun resort. These unique Mayan sites include remarkable pyramids, temples and other structures. Your English-speaking tour guide will explain Mayan culture and the extraordinary purposes of the temples, observatory, ball court and pyramids built by these advanced people.

6. Cool Off in a Cenote

Combine your Mayan Ruins Tour with a visit to a nearby cenote. Enjoy a unique swimming and snorkeling experience in these rare limestone sinkholes.

As you can see, there are plenty of fun things to do in Cancun for all ages and interests!
