Experience Cancun: what to do, what to see

Essentials in Cancun

Riviera Maya: This is the main tourist district in and around Cancun. It's also called the Mayan Riviera and its a hot spot for hotels and beaches. It starts at Playa del Carmen and runs all the way along the coast until Tulum, including of course the Isla de Cozumel as well.

Chichen Itza: The temple is dedicated to the Mayan goddess of fertility and the moon, Ixchel. In the 1980s the ruins were heavily damaged by a hurricane but today are well-worth exploring if you're looking for a little Mayan flavour to add to your holiday in Cancun.

Snorkelling: Cancun is prime snorkelling territory. Take a boat out to secluded lagoons and snorkel the reefs and sunken ships, even underwater statue parks!
