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.
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.
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.
