Think that you’ve seen it all in Cancun? Think again. Though this glittering jewel of a resort town does seem to have everything a tourist could want – white sand beaches, palm trees, night clubs, and underwater activities, there’s a whole lot more going on just outside Cancun’s borders. If you’ve never been beyond the reaches of Cancun, now’s a good time to start.
Chichen Itza – Cancun is situated right on the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula and so makes a great jumping-off point to explore some ancient Maya Ruins.
Playa del Carmen – priding itself on its artist’s colony and sleepy fishing village roots, Playa del Carmen is a great spot to see if Cancun seems like a bit too much.
Cozumel is a little island off the coast, world renowned for being a little sleepy spot in the Caribbean and known for its excellent fishing and underwater diving.
The Xcaret Parks are for the environmental lover in you. Spend the day in paradise snorkeling some of the best bays in all of Mexico.
