Things To Do In Cancun – Essential Travel Guide 2020

Things to Do in Cancun

Cancun is a Mexican resort city located on the Yucatán Peninsula. It touches the Caribbean Sea, which could be part of why the city is so beautiful and a good spot for a vacation. Following are some of the top things to do in Cancun.

  • Visit Isla Mujeres or Cozumel
  • Observe the Sea Life in All Its Glory
  • Visit 5th Avenue for Restaurants and Nightlife
  • Visit Mayan ruins – Tulum & Chichen Itza

Visit Isla Mujeres or Cozumel

Isla Mujeres is a rather tiny and beautiful island just off the coast of Cancun. It attracts tourists from all over the world with Its clear and bright blue waters, colorful coral reefs, sunny and sandy beaches, migrating whale sharks, the iconic Mayan ruins, and of course, giant iguanas.

Yes, the giant-iguanas part might not seem fun, but it’s their utter disregard for humans that’s fascinating. They’ll walk over your feet in a carefree manner, giving you absolutely no reason to fear – just feel special that it trusts you.

Isla Mujeres also gives you opportunities to go swimming with the sea turtles on its clear beaches. We recommend spending the morning wandering the El Meco and Punta Sur to relax, then go to the Playa Lancheros (Shark Beach) for a sunbathe and a thrilling dive.

Observe the Sea Life in All Its Glory

Akumal is the best place for you to go if sea creatures are what you long to see, especially large sea turtles. Snorkelers and scuba divers are in for a treat as they can also witness Akumal beach’s vibrant coral beds and a diverse fish life.

Visit Cenotes for Snorkeling

One of the best places to visit in Mexico is its Cenotes. These are sinkholes that have been filled with water and are now life to a wide array of animals.

Cenote Azul

Azul has another popular cenote right next to Playa Del Carmen (Riviera Maya) where you can take a dive in the water to experience nature at its finest.

Garden of Eden

The Garden of Eden, known as Jardin del Eden in the common tongue is a surreal cenote without which our things to do in Cancun list simply cannot be complete. It’s about an 18 minute drive from Playa Del Carmen, vibrant, and most importantly, not overrun by tourists.

Gran Cenote

One of the best things to do in Gran Cenote, the largest cenote in Cancun, is capture vibrant life with a good camera. An hour with a camera here is better than a day anywhere else for photographers.

Visit Playa Del Carmen’s 5th Avenue for Restaurants and Nightlife

For those of you who are more interested in the nightlife, Cancun has a range of restaurants and clubs for you as well. You’ll learn the definition of a good time as soon as the sun goes down. Whether you’re looking to bring back the days or the disco, want to experience beach fire shows, belly dancing, music clubs, or simply want a quiet bar for a good time with your significant other, 5th Ave restaurants will have it all for you.

Fancy a quick drink? Go to the Hora Feliz (Happy Hour). Want to have a good sandwich? Visit the End Zone. There are numerous other options you can avail as well.

Visit Mayan Ruins – Chichen Itza

And of course, the Mayan Ruins. These ruins are a symbol of the Mayan civilization, their culture, and of course, are surrounded by mystery. A trip to the Mayan monument of Chichen Itza will not only give you a breathtaking perspective on this wonder of the world. Sunrise is the best time to visit Chichen Itza, as you’ll get to experience the wildlife waking up and the sun rising behind the ruin spectacularly.
