Simply staring out at the turquoise Caribbean from the comfort of a beach lounger is enough of a perfect view for many Cancun vacationers, but there are a few ways to get another perspective on this Yucatan destination. Read on for our top options.
Fly through the air as a boat pulls you across the water for a bird’s-eye view of the beach and the Cancun hotel zone. Tours typically leave from the shore and don’t take too much time away from sunbathing and swimming.
Head out to sea in the quieter evening hours to enjoy a relaxing sunset. Many cruises include drinks or the option to purchase them from an onboard bar, and dinner cruises are also available.
Take a break from Cancun’s crowds on the ground with a scenic flight over the coastline. Depending on the route of the flight, you’ll have aerial views of the white-sand beaches, the outline of the coral reef system, and Isla Mujeres.
Rooftop Pools and Bars
You might be lucky enough to have a rooftop pool at your own hotel, but if not, some top-level pools are open to the public along Cancun’s hotel zone. Alternatively, head to a rooftop bar or club such as H Roof to look down on the city while sipping a cocktail.
