Cancun is the perfect place for outdoor activites. It's warm, sunny and the area is packed with natural and manmade wonders that are begging to be explored.
Speaking of explore... Xplor is an eco adventure park located just south of Playa del Carmen where visitors fly high above the ground on zip lines and swim below the Earth's surface in underground rivers. Spend time outdoors where the ancient Mayans did, at Tulum archaeological site, which is located on an indescribably beautiful Caribbean beach. At Xel-Ha, visitors can "snorkel, fly, relax or discover".
To escape bustling Cancun, travel to unspoiled Sian Ka'an Biosphere Reserve, more than a million acres of protected land, or hop a boat to bird sanctuary Isla Contoy, where there is a limit on how many people can visit per day. Discover cenotes (spectacular fresh water sinkholes) through kayaking, zip lining, snorkeling, rappelling at Xenotes.
If swimming with sea turtles in Akumal is on your bucket list, Aventuras Mayas can help. To experience the beauty of what lies below the surface of the Caribbean, book at tour with Aquaworld. For the experience of a lifetime, swim with the dolphins at Dolphin Discovery.
Forget lying on the beach and work on your tan while enjoying these outdoor activities in Cancun.
