Things to do in Cancun

Situated on the Yucatan Peninsula with a-class views of the Caribbean Sea, Cancun is a sought-after destination – for both beach lovers and history buffs alike. With its crystal-clear waters, Mayan ruins, and delightful culinary tradition, Cancun has something for every taste. It’s also an ideal starting point for delving into the surrounding areas, teeming with pristine natural sites and archaeological treasures. The 6 best activities to do in Cancun 1. Visit the Mayan ruins of Tulum Less than a two-hour drive from Cancun brings you to Tulum, famous for the ruins of an ancient Mayan city perched on a cliff overlooking the sea. This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers a fascinating glimpse into Mayan civilization. Stroll among well-preserved ruins, admire the El Castillo pyramid, the Temple of the Frescoes, and soak up views of the Caribbean Sea. The beach below the ruins, Playa del Paraíso, is one of the most beautiful in the area – so don’t forget your swimsuits. 2. Snorkel on Cozumel Island

Another popular day trip from Cancun is to Cozumel Island, a top hit for snorkelling and diving enthusiasts, thanks to the colourful coral reef that surrounds it. The waters are crystal clear and teeming with marine life. If you prefer to stay dry, there are many other activities to try. For example, you can explore the Mayan ruins of San Gervasio, visit the town of San Miguel de Cozumel or relax on the beautiful beaches.

3. Explore Chichen Itza

A trip to Cancun wouldn't be complete without visiting Chichen Itza – one of the seven wonders of the modern world and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It’s the most famous Mayan archaeological site worldwide, showcasing ingenious structures including the Kukulkan pyramid. We suggest arriving early in the morning to avoid the crowds with a guided tour to fully appreciate its history. 4. Swim in a cenote

Swimming in a cenote is a mystical and thrilling experience, and the Cancun area is particularly rich in these caves filled with freshwater. Taking a plunge into these natural pools is an excellent way to cool off from the tropical heat of the Yucatan. Some of the cenotes, such as the sacred Ik Kil Cenote near Chichen Itza, are surrounded by lush vegetation, creating a truly magical atmosphere. 5. Indulge in street food

Cancun is a paradise for those who love a taste of local street food. Tacos, tamales, elotes (grilled corn), and marquesitas are just a few examples of yummy treats that showcase rich Mexican and Yucatan food culture. Don't miss the opportunity to try cochinita pibil – a slow-roasted pork dish typical of the region. Savour it all by pairing it with a glass of horchata, a sweet rice-based drink spiced with cinnamon.

6. Take a trip to Sian Ka'an

The Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is the perfect outing for nature lovers. This protected area includes tropical forests, mangroves, marshes, and a coral reef brimming with marine life. Hop on a boat tour to spot manatees, dolphins, and hundreds of bird species. With a bit of luck, you might even catch a glimpse of a jaguar or a tapir in the forest.

Plan your visit to Cancun

What's the best time to visit Cancun?

Cancun's tropical climate guarantees warm temperatures throughout the year. However, the best time for visiting Cancun is from December and March, with dry and pleasant warm temperatures, usually staying below 30 degrees Celcius. We recommend avoiding September and October as these are the rainiest months and there is a higher chance of hurricanes.

How long do you need to visit Cancun?

There are so many things to do in Cancun and the surrounding areas, which is why we recommend staying in this location for at least 5 days. This way, you'll have the opportunity to dedicate two days to excursions to Chichen Itza and Tulum (both must-sees), and a full day of relaxation on one of the islands, whether it's Holbox, Isla Mujeres, or Cozumel. However, for the full experience and to take it easy, we recommend staying for at least 10 days.

What are the best beaches in Cancun?

Cancun and its surroundings are famous for beautiful beaches. Playa Delfines is the most popular beach in Cancun, spacious and well-equipped, named after the dolphins that are often spotted on the horizon. Playa Chac Mool is a secluded paradise, perfect for both relaxation and water sports enthusiasts. Playa Langosta, with its calm and shallow waters, is the ideal choice for families. Finally, for a truly local experience, visit Playa Caracol, small but with soft sands and crystal-clear waters.
