About Cancún, Mexico Attractions
Cancun is a world class destination that offers endless activities for all ages. If you enjoy water activities and sports, try jetskiing, waterskiing, boating and kayaking in the aqua blue Caribbean Sea or Nichupte Lagoon. For partiers, take a booze cruise to Isla Mujeres, a small island just off the coast of Cancun. The Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun's home, is the gateway to the ancient Mayan civilization, so visit archeaological ruin sites or the Mayan Museum in the Hotel Zone. In addition, Cancun and the surrounding area feature many parks and tours. To experience a little bit of everything, visit Xcaret, an eco-archeaological park, Xplor, an eco-adventure park, or Xel-Ha, a natural aquatic park. And if your favorite activity is simply lounging on a beach bed with a cool tropical drink in your hand, that's available as well.
