Cancun Tours and Excursions Range from Romantic to Adventurous, Create Amazing Memories

If lounging on the beach with a tropical drink in hand for a week straight is not your idea of a vacation, then escape the resort for awhile and experience the best of what Cancun and the Riviera Maya have to offer. There are activities, tours and excursions available to suit all tastes. During each of these tours you will experience a little of the rich history, colorful culture, love of celebration and natural beauty that Mexico has to offer.

How about a pirate battle at sea? Work on the best tan of your life sailing on a catamaran to a tropical Caribbean island, or conquer the catch of the day on a deep sea fishing excursion. You may be accompanied by a school of leaping dolphins! Take a day trip to the pristine Sian Kaan Biosphere Reserve, or fly high above the jungle canopy on a zip line.

Explore what's "under the sea" while snorkeling with sea turtles in Akumal. Tropical nights heat up with a party cruise to Isla Mujeres or a romantic sail complete with a lobster dinner. If you prefer dry land and daylight, visit an ancient Mayan ruins site.

No matter which you choose, the memories you create on these tours and exursions will endure long after your vacation is over.
