Best Off-the-Beaten-Path Spots Near Cancun

No reviews, be the first!

With its perfect beaches, cheap airfare, world-class Mayan ruins, endless tourist attractions and more than 100 hotels, Cancun is famously one of the world’s top destinations, attracting more than three million travelers per year. Thus, adventurous types often dread visiting this sun-drenched tropical paradise, which seems to offer all the street cred and opportunity for cultural enrichment of an all-you-can-eat booze cruise.

Fear not! Yes, your less intrepid friends and family may have voted for Cancun over Cartagena or Kabul. But there’s no need to resign yourself to being trapped in a boring all-inclusive sipping drinks with umbrellas—and admit it, that’s not a bad way to spend a vacation anyway. While it’s difficult to truly escape the crowds anywhere on the Yucatan, there is so much more to see and do.
