Cancun Attractions and Activities

The large and elaborate resorts are located in the Hotel Zone, lining Cancun Island, while the business district can be found on the mainland. Between the mainland and the Hotel Zone is the Nichupte Lagoon.

Beaches
The majority of resorts and hotels in the Hotel Zone are set on beautiful beaches. Sections of the shore ideal and safe for swimming are located on Cancun Island’s eastern shore on Mujeres Bay. The sections of the northern shore on the Caribbean side of the island experience rougher seas. Playa Las Perlas, Playa Linda, Playa Langosta, and Playa Tortuga are beaches open to all members of the public on the island.

Nichupte Lagoon
Tourists visiting the Nichupte Lagoon can tour it by boat on the AquaWorld Jungle Tour. The tour ends at the Punta Nizuc, a ten foot deep reef perfect for snorkeling. Snorkelers can observe sea turtles and large quantities of tropical fish while snorkeling here. Tourists scheduling tours with AquaWorld can also arrange transportation to Isla Mujeres.

Xcaret
At Xcaret, tourists can interact and swim with tame dolphins, observe toucans and jaguars, tour a cave full of bats, wade down a river on a tube, and relax at a Mexican folk music presentation. The performers dress in traditional costumes and headresses.

Cavern Snorkeling at Nohoch Nah Chich
Alltournative Tours sponsors a trip across a rainforest to a final destination of Rancho San Felipe where access to one of the world’s longest underground river networks is located known as Nohoch Nan Chich. Within this region is a beautiful area for snorkeling. After snorkeling, guests can eat traditional Mayan food at a ranch. This tour is perfect for people interested in eco-tourism and learning about the cultures of the region.

Mayan Encounter
Tourists interested in exploring the Yucatan’s tallest temple in the historic Mayan city of Cobá can make arrangements with Alltournative Tour. All tourists participating in the Mayan Encounter should visit the Nohoch Muul. During the tour, guests will be guided on a rainforest hike, travel down a zip line, canoe across a lagoon, and be treated to a traditional Mayan meal.

Chichén-Itzá
Although it is about a three-hour drive to reach the Chichén-Itzá, tourists will not be disappointed. At this site, ancient Mayan pyramids, plazas, and other structures can be explored. Tourists interested in learning more details about specific temples, tombs, homes, and Mayan culture should make arrangements with Best Day Tours.
