In Cancun, Travel

When I came to Mexico and made a decision to spend some time in Cancun, I didn’t know for how long this  “some time” will continue. So, I was trying to see as many places as possible in a short period of time. It wasn’t hard to decide what things to do in Cancun Mexico, just a little confusing (a normal reaction to the things you don’t know) which activity to put the first on my list of “Must see”.

It took me a day to make it, scrolling through the pages of the Internet and looking through a huge amount of information. Based on that experience, as well as after fulfilling my knowledge of Cancun area by living in Mexico for almost three years, I made a list “Things to do in Cancun Mexico in 3 days”. Why exactly three days? After talking with many of my customers I made a conclusion, that it is an average time most couples and families would like to spend exploring the Cancun area. As it goes without saying that 1-2 days everyone will prefer to spend in the resort, enjoying all inclusive amenities and the beach. So 3 days sounds like a happy medium to spend travelling around Cancun city.

1. El Rey + Museo da Maya.

Both located at the end of the Hotel Zone. El Rey – 18 km and Museo de Maya – 16.5 km. The territory they occupy is not so big, so you will be able to see both of them in one day. I would recommend first to visit El Rey during the morning hours. Why? For one reason, the sun will be tremendously strong after 11 a.m. and since El Rey represents itself the ruins left from Mayan civilization, they are located under the open sky. So that means the sun will accompany you all the time during your walk around pyramids. The working hours are from 8 am – 4.30p.m.

Museo Maya de Cancun. Most part of the exhibition is hidden in the modern white building. And only one pyramid and several ruins are located outside, covered by the tall, exotic trees, which provide a lot of shade and makes it convenient to walk along the pathways at any time during the day. Working hours are: 9a.m. -5.30 p.m.

2. Playa Delfines.

That is one of the top things to do in Cancun Mexico – visit the beach or in case you are a beach lover, several beaches. For everyone Cancun goes with association with the beaches and that is 100% true. Just think about the Hotel Zone which represents itself a 24 km coastline, covered with the luxury resorts. The beaches are the main pearl of this region and Playa Delfines is one of the most popular. Located on the 18km zone (close to El Rey) it offers everyone a magnificent view on the Caribbean sea from the top point. That is the beach where you can make a picture with a popular Cancun sign.

3. La Isla.

That is where you need to go to combine different kinds of entertainment at once. A shopping mall, variety of restaurants with a view on the Lagoon Nichupte, yacht tours around the lagoon, fly board experience, interactive aquarium. A day spent there will give you a positive boost for many days ahead.
