As you wind your way through the sun-bleached columns at the remains of the ancient Mayan city of Chichen Itza, small plumes of dust kick up in your wake to float lazily in the humid air before settling again. The sense of history here is palpable. The terraced walls of El Castillo slant up toward the sky, drawn like an anchor line through the centuries of explorers who came to this dense, vivid landscape to you. More than basking in the warm tropical breezes and cobalt blue sea, Cancun activities span antiquity to the present day, and you can expect a remarkable vacation.
When searching for things to do in Cancun on your upcoming trip, let the past guide you. Touring archaeological sites, like Chichen Itza and Coba, transports you to the ancient Mayan civilization that made this land home. Back in the present, diving into the eerie depths of Cenote Tankach-Ha provides relief from the heat of the day. You can move even farther and faster from the trappings of the modern world via speedboat, where a tour of the surrounding jungle will bring you face to face with the Yucatan’s other natives. With a keen eye and finely honed camera phone reflexes, you’ll be able to strike seeing jaguars, kinkajous, and nine-banded armadillos from your “What to Do in Cancun” list. At the aquatic park in Xel-Ha, near Cancun hotels along the Riviera Maya, you’ll find a myriad of caves and grottos to investigate within the brilliant, clear waters of the lagoon.
Tread the path of bygone explorers, but with a few necessary amenities (like tour packages and park tickets) that you can book today. At Travelocity, we provide affordable Cancun vacation packages that appeal to your traveler’s soul--bundle your flight and hotel to save the most money.
