Cancun has loads of attractions. 5 top attractions are the beaches, Tulum, cenotes, Isla Mujeres, and Chichen Itza.
El Garrafon is a fantastic park to visit when you go to Isla Mujeres (Island of Women). We enjoyed snorkeling, relaxing by the pool, a walk through the modern art Sculpture Garden and zip lining. We met a really sweet Mexican family–4 generations, who were on vacation also. They invited us to have breakfast with them. It was the first time I realized Mexicans vacation too! Silly, I know. I just never thought about nationals going on holiday before, especially doing "touristy" things. I don't know why! All I do know is, it was a fun and enlightening day.
There's never a dull moment at El Garrafon with kayaking, a Mayan temple to explore, swim with the dolphins experiences and island bicycle tours.
There are several packages -all include:
- ferry ride from Cancun to Isla Mujeres, including dock and reef fees
- breakfast on the ferry
- lunch on the island
- open bar on the ferry and island
- life jackets
- snorkel equipment
- use of kayaks
- pool and hammocks
- showers and lockers
Bring a towel, shopping money and be sure to use biodegradable sunscreen to protect the reef and sea life. It really does make a difference!
I guess I should add, Mr. TD enjoyed zip lining over the water, I enjoyed watching him!
