Top things to do in Cancun
The great thing about Cancun is that you can choose to do as much or as little as you like, from spending all day by the pool sipping cocktails to going on a new adventure every day. Here are some of the top things to do during your vacation in Cancun.
Take a trip to Chichen Itza
Home to one of the wonders of the world, the El Castillo pyramid, it's no surprise that the ancient Mayan site of Chichen Itza in Yucatan is a popular day trip for tourists. Learn about the Mayan way of life and admire the intricate carvings in the stone and the beautiful buildings across the ruined complex. There are many different tours from Cancun that include a tour of Chichen Itza, so you can combine your trip with a visit to a cenote or nearby town.
Relax on one of the many beaches
One of the most popular things to do in Cancun is to enjoy the sandy beaches and take some time to relax. Playa Delfines, or Dolphin Beach, is the most popular beach in the hotel zone, and the unique fishing boat beach of Puerto Morelos is nearby. Further afield there is Xpu-Ha Beach in Riviera Maya and the beach at Akumal, famous for its sea turtles, is located around 95 km south of Cancun.

Try some water sports
Cancun is the place to be if you want to try adventurous water-related activities. Enjoy relaxing snorkeling tours around beautiful reefs or perhaps go a bit further and take part in scuba diving tours. You can also try parasailing, jet skiing, and sea kayaking in Cancun.
Swim with whale sharks
A unique thing to do in the Caribbean waters off Cancun is to swim with the majestic whale sharks, the largest fish in the ocean. Whale shark season is between June and September, so keep this in mind when choosing your travel dates if this trip is on your schedule. Many tour operators will take you out to where whale sharks have been sighted, and expert divers will take you into the water at intervals to swim with these magnificent creatures.
