Travel to Cancun and best plane tickets? Tulum, just 90 minutes south, is a better option for those pressed for time. Famous for its cliff-top location and for being the only known fortified Mayan coastal town, Tulum contains many other unique structures in addition to its tall, wide walls, most noticeably its Temple of the Frescos with its sculptures and reliefs depicting seated figures with elaborate headdresses. The site’s largest building, the Castillo, is also its most famous, perched as it is on the cliff-edge overlooking the sea. A fun way to see the best parts of this attraction-along with other nearby points of interest-is via a 3-in-1 Discovery Combo Tour that takes in the Tulum ruins, cenotes, and caves, along with some reef snorkeling. Also included in this day-long adventure is an informative jungle walk, along with transportation, a bilingual guide, all equipment, plus a traditional Mexican lunch.

Cancun is a haven for water sports enthusiasts and it’s the perfect place to learn scuba diving. There are many underwater attractions in the area. Cancun is located close to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef, the second largest reef in the world. Home to dolphins, many kinds of tropical fish, eels, lobsters, nurse sharks, and majestic eagle rays. Isla Mujeres, the underwater MUSA museum, and nearby cenotes are favorite spots. There are several locations where newbies can learn scuba diving and get their PADI license.
Being surrounded by water means some of the fun things to do in Isla Mujeres occur under the water. You can snorkel and scuba dive all around the island and there are dozens of companies that will take you out on a scuba or snorkel tour to see many types of corral and colorful tropical fish including sailfish from December to June. From June to September you can swim with giant Whale Sharks and anytime of the year is great to swim in the National Park that’s filled with the MUSA Underwater Sculpture Museum’s sculptures. Most tours include lunch buffets as well as snorkel gear.
Mercado 28 is easy to reach by bus from the Hotel Zone, but make sure you look for the Super Aki store, as there are several other markets with a similar name which can fool tourists. Ok, I can’t talk about Cancun without mentioning the nightlife. The city is known for its crazy nightlife, especially during Spring Break, when students travel to Mexico for a little fun. After a day at the beach, when sun goes down you can unleash your energy and dance the night away. The best nightclubs in Cancun usually have long waiting lines, but it’s worth the wait.
