8 Incredible Things To Do in Cancun

Cancun has a wonderful blend of pristine, natural beauty, intriguing cultural sites, and all the comforts of home.

Most visitors to Cancun want to spend some time relaxing at the beach, so plan to spend a day or two near the turquoise waters. For those staying outside of the hotel zone, Playa Delfines is a popular and easily accessible public beach.

Then, when you’re ready to explore further, you’ll find more than enough to keep you busy for the rest of your trip. Here are some of our favorite things to do in Cancun.

Isla Mujeres (literally translates to the “Island of Women”) can be found just a few miles off Cancun's coast. Here you'll find calm crystal clear waters, white sandy beaches, and a vibrant community of locals and ex-pats.

A visit to Cancun would not be complete without experiencing the local lifestyle. So wander down to Avenida Tulum to get a taste of Mexican culture, try mouthwatering Mexican street food (obviously tacos al pastor!), and enjoy browsing through local shops.

Visit Downtown Cancun

As an important Mayan archaeological site and one of the new seven wonders of the world, it is no surprise that Chichen Itza is one of the most visited places in Mexico for history and culture lovers.

Let a Shaman guide you through a pre-Hispanic ritual intended to purify the spirit and the body. Enter the Temazcal: a round building with a low ceiling resembling a steamy sauna. Hot rocks and water help maintain the tiny hut's special energy.
