Mexico is known for its good food and drink, stunning views, and laidback culture. If you are planning a trip to Cancun in the Central American country, but want it to be as special as possible, check out the tips in the following article for a truly unforgettable holiday in Mexico.
Visit To Chichen Itza
The name Chichen Itza translates as “at the mouth of the well of Itza” and is an archaeologically significant site located near the Yucatan Peninsula. One of the new 7 Wonders of the World is situated there, the Kukulkan Pyramid or El Castillo. Although it takes around two and a half hours to get there, it is worth it.
Swim With Dolphins At Dolphin Discovery in Isla Mujeres
It may not be to everyone’s taste, but if you have always dreamed of swimming with wild oceanic creatures, then head to Dolphin Discovery in the tranquil Isla Mujeres. The team that works there accompanies you throughout your time there to ensure you have as good a time as possible. Unlike other places, the great thing about Dolphin Discovery is that the dolphins are kept in natural seawater with enough space to live and swim.
Scuba Diving in Cozumel
Diving in Cozumel
If you want to get up close and personal with some of the exotic sea life found off the coast of Mexico, then a spot of scuba diving is a must. As the waters are so warm there during summer, you don’t even need to bother with a wetsuit and if you are not officially qualified you will be able to book someone who will accompany you. Make sure you bring a suitable camera as there will be lots of chances to snap stingrays and turtles amongst many others.
Gaffron Park is a great place to go whether you are after a relaxing, spa-type experience or want some more adventure. There is a buffet service, private pools, and a Jacuzzi as well as zip-pining and snorkeling.
Although most flights are only about 12 minutes in length, they are definitely worth it as you get a bird’s eye view of Cancun lagoon and the Cancun Hotel Zone that includes the awesome Riu Palace Las Americas, Riu Cancun, and Riu Palace Peninsula.
Playa Norte Beach, Isla Mujeres
Isla Mujeres has already been mentioned above with regards to Dolphin Discovery, but it is worth visiting because it is home to one of the top 10 beaches in the world – Playa Norte which is very easy to fall in love with. There is plenty to do, and plenty to avoid – so whether you are interested in taking part in some action-packed water sports or just want to sit back with a couple of beers and enjoy sitting on the pristine beach with a view out to the Caribbean sea, the choice is yours.
Obviously, as well as the activities and places listed above, we would recommend that you try some of the local cuisines when you get a chance to make it a truly unforgettable holiday in Mexico.
