Spring Break in Cancun

By Viator, April 2014

4.5 1259 Reviews | Add your review

Mexico and spring break go hand-in-hand like, well, a margarita in your hand! Cancun has some of the best beaches in Mexico, Mayan ruins to explore (some right on the beach!) and rainforests and jungles to keep even the most adventurous thrill-seeker busy for days.

Nothing says spring break like the beach, and Cancun has tons for any beach bum. Beach lovers can snorkel, swim with dolphins, or cruise the day away under the sun-bathed waters of the Yucatan. Day trips to the eco parks of Xel-Ha, Xcaret, and Xplor are fun for all ages, so if you have the kids in tow, there is plenty to explore. Horseback riding, meeting whale sharks, and boat rides through the Sian Ka'an Nature Reserve are just bonuses!

Cancun has plenty to offer adrenaline junkies, too! College students on a budget can still live large, from ATVs to Hummers, road races to ziplines, get your kicks in the Mexican Riviera. You can explore Tulum, go by SkyCycle, take a speed boat through the jungle, or try parasailing. Just trying to fit it all in is the hard part.

Finally, do not miss out on the history of the Yucatan peninsula. Chichen Itza is the crown jewel of Cancun's Mayan ruins, but don't miss Tulum - located right on the beach - or Coba, an easy day trip. Even the most jaded spring breaker should make time to see some of these breath taking sites!
