Are you in the countdown to visit Cancun? check out the 2017 List of attractions you must visit to have an unforgettable vacation!


    1. Awaken the past visiting archeological zones.($$)

A must. Travel to de past and stare in awe the massive structures built with only workforce and crude tools. UNESCO has cataloged some of these archeological zones as World Heritage, and one voted as one of the seven wonders of the world. Visit Tulum, El Rey, Cobá or Chichen Itza. Don’t forget to bring water, sunscreen, lightweight clothing, camera, and hat; it’s hot out there in the jungle!

Tip. Visit Chichen Itza during the afternoon and stay for the light and sound night show, you won’t regret it!.

    1. Travel through the Cenotes($$)

There are at least 20 Cenotes near Cancún, and you have to see for yourself what the Maya believed it was at the door to the underworld, and rightly so! The scenes you will discover seems to be taken out of dreams or from another world. Incredible locations surrounded by nature and mysticism that invites you every time to take a dip into their crystalline waters.

Before you go further looking for almost lost Cenotes, we suggest you start with the Xenotes Oasis Maya tour by Xcaret experiences, where you will combine: rappel, zip line, kayaking, and swimming. A whole experience n one day!

    1. Sea Trek at the Interactive Aquarium.($$)

And the last but not the least, a cultural day for you and your kids, the Interactive Aquarium in Cancun goes way beyond of observing fishes and reading a square paper to “learn more.” Instead, wear your swimsuit and jump into the tank to interact with more than ten species! From all the activities available in Cancun this is one of my favorites since recall us we are part of this beautiful planet earth, we are not a separate entity.
