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.

Staying in Cancun

The whole area is well-catered around tourists, and you'll find lots of places to stay and enjoy everything Cancun has to offer. However, there are three distinct areas you can choose from to stay in. The first choice for tourists is the hotel zone, and this is where you will usually stay when you choose all-inclusive packages to Cancun. Most resort hotels are located here along the 20-km stretch of beach. You'll also find numerous trip operators offering fishing, scuba diving, and catamaran trips. 
Downtown Cancun is another neighborhood you can choose to stay in. This is where the locals live and is an excellent base for transport around Cancun that also boasts authentic food and interesting markets. Then there is Punta Nizuc, which only caters to tourists. With beautiful beaches and lots of things to do, it's a good choice for families and is located close to the airport.  

Getting around Cancun

Depending on the type of vacation you prefer, you’ll find different modes of transportation to suit your needs. In downtown Cancun, buses are a cheap and easy way to get around and can also take you further along the coast to Riviera Maya and Tulum. Just remember to make sure you have the correct change in Pesos or dollars to pay the driver. 
Taxis also offer a fast, reliable service and are readily available in tourist areas. It's a good idea to agree to the fare before you set off. You could also rent a car if you want to explore more on your own. You can pick up a rental car at the airport when you arrive or book a car before you arrive.  

Cancun Airport Information

Cancun International Airport (CUN) is the second busiest airport in Mexico and has lots of amenities for the many travelers that pass through each day. There's duty free shopping, a choice of restaurants, currency exchange and car rental, as well as readily available transport links to the surrounding area.
Cancun airport is around 30 minutes directly to central Cancun and the hotel zone. The journey can take much longer, however, if there are multiple stops and drops at different hotels along the way. There are special hotel transfer buses that operate between major hotels and resorts from the airport that will drop you directly at your hotel and should be booked in advance. You can do this as part of vacation packages to Cancun. You can also choose a private taxi or private transfer at a prearranged fixed rate to take you directly to your destination. There are public buses to Cancun, Riviera Maya and Tulum, which are the cheapest option. Just remember they only stop at designated bus stations and you will need to make your onward travel from there.
