Cancun:5 Top Attractions

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!

    Nice list! I'll add also:
    1) Río Secreto Nature Park, a system of underground rivers and caves were you can walk and swim.
    2) Holbox, a small fishermen island in the northern tip of the Yucatan Peninsula that still offers a peaceful getaway for its visitors. People move around walking, in bicycles or in golf carts 🙂 
    3)The brand new, Cancun Underwater Museum is a collection of underwater sculptures that were immersed last year by the British artist, Jason DeCaires Taylor. A must-visit place for all visitors!
    Hope you find this ideas useful too!
