10 Amazing Day Trips to Take in Cancun

Cancun is one of the most popular destinations for North American vacationers over the winter and the college crowd during spring break. With beautiful beaches, great hospitality and a vibrant nightlife, many people head to Cancun’s resorts to soak up the sun. Many resorts are all-inclusive offering food, drinks, activities and entertainment. Staying at one of these it is easy to find yourself never wanting to leave the resort since everything you could want or need is right at hand. But Cancun and the Mayan Riviera offer more than resort activities and late night bar crawls. Here are some ideas for activities and places you can visit on a day trip away from the resort.

10. Selvatica

To say Selvatica is a theme park really would not do it justice. One of the more popular day excursions for visitors, Selvatica covers 330 acres of Mayan jungle and is an adventure destination experience. Drive ATV’S on the Mud Madness course, hurl head first through the jungle on the zip lines, swim in a Ceynote (underground swimming hole), try the bungee swing, ride Tarzana the human roller coaster or test your balance on the aerial bridges. TripAdvisor rated the park as being in the top 10 adventure destinations in the world. The parks motto is “making adventure personal”. Several tour packages exist at the park so you can tailor the activities you want. Lunch is provided in the ticket price. The park offers free pick up and return to your hotel in Cancun so all you have to do is pack a bag for the day and enjoy the adventure.

9. Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is an island located off the Yucatan peninsula coast. A short 20 minute ferry ride from Cancun transports you to a more laid back island with lots of things to enjoy. The island has great beaches where you can relax or do some snorkeling. Several boat tours and charter fishing boats operate on the island and the turtle farm is a popular destination. There are several golf cart rentals on the island but these have been designed to look like jeeps and cars. Rent a cart and explore the island and since the island isn’t that large it should only take about an hour. If you want to relax head over to Captain Dulche where you can relax on the beach, have a drink at the shipwreck bar or visit the small maritime museum with artifacts and historical presentations.
