Cancun adventures and excursions to enrich your visit!

Cancun is so much more than lounge chairs, palapas, and pool bars. Spending time at the Cancun beach gazing at the aqua blue Caribbean Sea is a must, but if you are looking for other things to do in Cancun, there are many activities that will enrich your visit and make it even more memorable.


Cancun offers around-the-clock activities, from kayaking through mangroves at sunrise or paddle boarding and sailing at your hotel to exploring Isla Mujeres (Island of Women) and its charming downtown area and the coral reefs that surround the island.


Cancun theme parks, Mayan ruins and much more

Visit one of the many ancient Mayan cities in the area. Take a tour to Chichen Itza or one of the many available Cancun excursions to Tulum. Take a dip in one of the thousands of cenotes on the peninsula, go snorkeling in Cozumelswim with dolphins in Cancun, visit one of the parks of the Xcaret group, or travel a little further and see Holbox, Isla Contoy or the Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve.


The fun continues at night in Cancun's nightclubs and bars, each one with its own distinct personality, music, animation team and theme nights. Cancun's biggest nightclubs include Coco Bongo, Mandala, The City, Palazzo and Daddy'O. During Cancun Spring Break the nightclubs host special events.
