    Experience Cancun: sights, tours and activities

    Cancun is a city that just gives and gives. The parties, the beaches, the world-class resorts, the ancient ruins and Maya dancers… it’s all here waiting for you! It’s hard to imagine this place as once being a small fishing town before the 1970s. Today it’s up there with Las Vegas and Ibiza as one of the best places to party.

    Essentials in Cancun

    Beaches: There is no shortage of beaches in Cancun. Swimming in the open ocean is only recommended for more advanced swimmers. If you’re looking for calmer waters, Isla Mujeres is the perfect choice.

    Snorkeling: Cancun has some amazing underwater adventures, from snorkeling on the second largest barrier reed in the world to swimming with whale sharks, manta rays or sea turtles. The great think about snorkeling is you can usually hire the equipment from your hotel and then off you go.

    Isla Mujeres: The Quintana Roo Islands are gorgeous and if you only have time to visit one, make it Isla Mujeres. The crushed-coral beaches are usually less crowded than Cozumel and there’s no better place to sit back and relax with a Sex on the Beach in one hand and a novel in the other.
