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.
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.
