Things to Do in Cancun Mexico

There's a reason that millions of vacationers are drawn to Cancun annually. White sand beaches, turquoise waters, ecological theme parks, mayan ruins, hundreds of restaurants and shopping are just some of the highlights.

White Sandy Beaches

Without a doubt, Cancun’s strongest draw is its crystalline blue water. In these waters, or on the beaches, you can do all kinds of activities. You might want to take a spin on a waverunner or a banana boat. Or you can play some volleyball or simply bask in the sun on a white-sand beach as you take in the spectacular scenery of the hotel zone.

Playa Las Perlas – At the beginning of the hotel zone and west of Punta Cuncan at Km 2.5, you’ll find this beach with balmy weather, ideal for doing such water sports as sailing, surfing, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving and swimming. This spot also has ferries that depart to Isla Mujeres.

Isla Mujeres – Located 14 kilometers (9 miles) off the coast of Cancun, it is one of the most beautiful spots in the Mexican Caribbean. To arrive there, you can take a ferry or speedboat from Puerto Juarez, Punta Sam and Playa Linda.

Tour the Ancient Ruins of Mexico

In Cancun and its surrounding areas, many ruins and ceremonial grounds have been discovered, where the Mayans used to pray and pay homage to their gods.
