It is impossible to visit Mexico and not become familiar with the Mayan culture. Start by seeing Chichen Itza, the ancient ruins that date back to the 7th century (you might sign up for a tour like this one that includes transfers and lunch).
It is much more intriguing because it still has a lot of secrets. Hundreds and thousands of tourists from all over the world arrive every day long, but if you’re patient enough, you might be able to find a rare moment of peace.
Visit the cenotes to swim, snorkel, and dive.
Booking a trip to this part of Mexico for the cenotes is a great idea! Over 6,000 of them reside in the Yucatan. Cenotes are fantastical sinkholes with aquamarine water. It’s a combination of a cave and a fantastic pool.
Dive in some, snorkel in others and swim in others. They were considered sacred by the Mayans, who thought they marked the entrance to the underworld.
We advise visiting a few since they are all distinctive to this area and vary significantly from one another.
Due to its location near Chichen Itza, Cenote Ik Kil is not only one of the most spectacular but also one of the most visited. Go to Cenote XKeken and Cenote Samula instead to avoid the crowd. Despite being just next to one another, the two cenotes are remarkably distinct. Near Tulum, you will enjoy the Grand Cenote and Cenote Dos Ojos.
It would help if you travelled via the Ruta De Los Cenotes, a road that cuts through the jungle and has cenotes on either side (near Puerto Morelos).
Feast For A Few Pesos On Mexican Street Food
Mexico’s cuisine is a huge reason to visit. While some of you may shudder at the thought of eating tacos by the side of the road, We promise you that the street food in Mexico is AMAZING!
If you have the chance to visit Cenote Zapote, which the locals highly recommend, let us know what you think of it!
You can get tacos for as cheap as 15 MXN, or around 50 cents or USD 0.80, and they often tasted better than the ones we bought from more upscale eateries.
Eat as many as you can throughout your vacation, or you’ll regret it, whether it’s pulled pork topped with guacamole, shards of pickled onion, and chilli, or chicken topped with lettuce and chipotle mayo.
Take A Day Trip To Isla Mujeres
Numerous tours include the boat ride to the island, entrance to the beach club, lunch, unlimited beverages, a visit to the main town, and some snorkelling. The water is a brilliant turquoise colour and incredibly clear.
We saw lots of vibrant fish, which reawakened our appetite for a substantial lunch of tacos, salads, and beverages.
Isla Mujeres exudes an excellent hippy air, with golf carts and bicycles as the only modes of transportation, vibrant paintings painted on the walls, and the main street lined with independent restaurants.
This region of the world has amazing marine life.
Beautiful whale sharks travel to the waters surrounding Cancun from May to September. To swim and snorkel with them in the wild, you can take an equator.
You may go snorkelling with sea turtles in the wild at Akumal, a beach village located between Cancun and Tulum, where they come to eat the grass there.
Travellers cite the Marina Cancun tours rainforest excursion as one of the most unique and memorable experiences.
Combining the two best water activities into one makes this one of the best excursions in Cancun, allowing you to take full advantage of your tour in our speed boats.
