Things to Do in Cancun
- Dolphin Discovery
Swimming with dolphins is a once in a lifetime encounter with some of the most affectionate and playful animals! Dolphin Discovery Isla Mujeres is twenty minutes by ferry from Cancun and is located at the south part of the island surrounded by white-powdery sand, bright green palm trees and a turquoise crystalline ocean. Depending on the program you choose, you can receive a kiss, hug, or get a belly ride or a foot push! You can also expand your experience by swimming with other marine species like sea lions, manatees, sharks and stingrays in their natural habit!
- Nichupte Lagoon
Take a speed boat through the mangrove channel of the famous Nichupte Lagoon and out to the world’s 2nd largest coral reef! Once at the reef, you get to snorkel for 45 minutes in the crystal clear waters of the Caribbean Sea. The most popular activity on the lake is the boat ride through the jungle, called Jungle Tour.
- Flyboard / Aquaworld
The Flyboard is a hydro flying device that turns water into flight. If you are looking for adventure and you love a good rush of adrenaline, this is the perfect Cancun activity for you! One of the favorite activities for tourists is flyboard, it is an exciting activity which will get your heart pumping. At Aquaworld you will receive the best quality flyboarding services and the assistance of highly trained and experienced instructors. Even if you have not tried flyboarding before, their instructors will guide you properly and guarantee your safety while ensuring that you are having lots of fun.
- Night Life
Cancun is known for its spectacular white sand beaches, but when the sun goes down, the city comes alive and thousands flock to the infamous Party Center where entertainment is second to none! One of Cancun’s most exciting and unique clubs, Coco Bongo is something you have to see to believe! CNN spoke about Coco Bongo and said: “Coco Bongo puts Vegas nightlife to shame!” Just imagine Cirque du Soleil acrobats flying above your heads, action packed musical scenes from popular movies and incredible impersonators of your favorite artists like Michael Jackson and Madonna. Another popular nightclub is Señor Frogs! Whether you go to eat, drink or party the night away, you can expect to have a good time with family and friends. The waiters love to interact with you at your table, making your outing unforgettable. And don’t miss the clown making balloon animals and fun hats for the kids to enjoy. Both Coco Bongo and Señor Frogs are within walking distance from Sunset Royal Beach Resort!
- Chichén Itzá
Chichén Itzá is a large Mayan archaeological site and one of the most notable and recognized landmarks on the Yucatán. The site itself was originally a main hub of Mayan civilization and has since been named a UNESCO World Heritage site. The focal point of the ruins is the pyramid-like El Castillo that was once used by Mayans as a temple to the god Kukulkan.
Unfortunately, because of its fame, Chichén Itzá is crawling with tourists trying to snap a picture of one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Nevertheless, the spectacular ruins are well worth it, even for the jaded traveler. You can avoid crowds by visiting the site in the early morning before the throngs of tour buses arrive. Recent visitors also advised bringing water and bug repellent and wearing appropriate footwear and a hat.
As you can see by the average temperatures above, it's always pretty warm in this part of Mexico. In addition to the usual shorts and light, cool clothes, don't forget to bring the sun protection (lotion, lip balm, aloe, hat, sunglasses). Biodegradable sunscreen is required if you plan on visiting an eco park, because regular sunscreen contains chemicals that harm the ecosystem. Many visitors like to bring their own insulated mugs for drinks at the beach, which bar staff are more than happy to fill for you. A Spanish phrase book or smart phone app will come in handy, as some of the locals might not speak much English - plus, trying a few conversations in Spanish is a lot of fun!

Some travelers suggest not even bringing a tie or suit for men because it's not needed. If you have a waterproof camera, this is the perfect place to use it with all the aquatic interactions.
