The Yucatan peninsula’s most famous destination is Cancun. An all-inclusive resort ensures that travelers never have to leave their hotel premises. The city is composed of two main areas: the traditional downtown area, El Centro, and Zona Hotelera, a long, beachfront strip of high-rise hotels, nightclubs, shops, and restaurants.
You can find endless activities in Cancun such as dolphin encounters, jet skiing, and paragliding. Or you could relax for hours by the beach with a good book and listen to the waves roll in.
Cancun is the perfect hub for those wanting to venture out to other areas of the Yucatan peninsula. Low-cost transportation makes it easy to travel to nearby cities.
Tulum is a sleepy, super-chill beach town with its own dose of hip. It’s about a 2-hour drive from Cancun. People visit for yoga getaways, endless beach days and views of the stunning Tulum ruins nearby.
Visit Akumal to snorkel with marine turtles in the warm turquoise blue waters of the Caribbean Sea. If you decide to snorkel, you’ll see turtles, an occasional stingray, and schools of fish. Booking a tour with an experienced guide is the best way to go. Your visit will include all the equipment you need.
Sian Ka’an Biosphere Reserve is one of the most breathtaking parts of the peninsula. The area is made up of lagoons, canals made by ancient Mayans, and a tropical forest. You can easily join a tour by booking it through your hotel or arriving at the visitor center.
Hurry and book your seat before the price increases.
