    Playa Tortugas Beach

    Bungee jump off the pier tower

    Playa Tortugas is a relatively small stretch of sand about 6 km northeast of Cancun’s Zona Hotelera. The beach is free to enjoy all year round, and its shores are shallow enough for children to swim in. It features a pier, where thrill-seekers get to enjoy bungee jumping from the top of a 25-metre-tall tower. There are ferries departing for Isla Mujeres from Playa Tortugas every day.

    Daytrip to Tulum

    Watch the sunset at Paradise Beach

    Tulum is a hippy beach town that’s about a 2-hour drive from Cancun’s Zona Hotelera. It’s surrounded by many Mayan ruins, cenotes, and small coves with beautiful views of the Caribbean Sea. Cycling is the best way to explore Tulum, as it’s a relatively small town.

    Swim in a cenote

    Dive into a natural pool in the Yucatán Peninsula

    There are close to 7,000 cenotes in the Yucatán Peninsula, some of which are popular for swimming and snorkelling. Surrounded by tropical trees and hanging vines, these natural formations are formed from collapsed limestone caves, resulting in pools of emerald-green waters. Most cenotes are close to Cancun’s Mayan ruins – the Ik Kil cenote is less than 6 km southeast of Chichen Itza. Thrill-seekers may enjoy extreme activities such as night diving and underground caving at Dos Ojos, located 22 km northeast of Tulum.

    Akumal Beach

    Snorkel among sea turtles

    Akumal, located 110 km south of Zona Hotelera, attracts beachgoers looking to escape the crowded beaches of Cancun. Its pristine beaches are well worth the 2-hour drive, as you get to enjoy snorkelling and diving in a protected cove. The main village has several restaurants and dive shops where you can rent equipment for a few dollars. Akumal Beach is a popular nesting spot for sea turtles between May and November. If you’re lucky, you might be able to swim among them when you’re visiting Akumal – just be sure not to touch them.

    Chichen Itza

    See the 24-metre-tall El Castillo pyramid

    Chichen Itza is a complex of pyramids and temples built by the Ancient Mayans. This important ruin is now UNESCO-listed. The El Castillo pyramid is the main attraction at Chichen Itza, but the observatory and ceremonial cenote add an intriguing beauty to the site. Located 77 km south of Zona Hotelera, daytrips to this Mayan archaeological site are available from many tour companies in Cancun. When visiting Chichen Itza, be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and sun protection as you’ll be outdoors throughout your visit.

    Try a Mayan steam bath

    Relax inside a Mesoamerican sweat lodge

    A temazcal is a traditional steam bath that was commonly used by the Mayan civilisation. Similar to a sauna or sweat lodge, locals believe that sweating inside this dome-shaped hut promotes blood circulation, removes toxins, and improves athletic endurance. Water is poured into a pit filled with heated rocks to create steam, while you rub your body with aloe vera and natural herbs for a duration of 20 minutes to 1 hour.
