5…Swim with dolphins
Take a short ferry ride to Isla Mujeres, an island located eight miles off of the eastern coast of the Yucatan Peninsula. The island is surrounded by clear, blue waters and offers the opportunity to swim with dolphins as well as discover the island’s diverse array of sea creatures.
After riding and receiving a kiss from the dolphins, meet the island’s manatees and sea lions. The more adventurous will enjoy Discovery Dolphin’s fantasy snorkel where visitors are invited to swim with stingrays and sharks.
Fulfill your need for speed at Cancun’s Exotic Rides where you can race the world’s most exclusive cars. Get behind the wheel of Ferraris and Lamborghinis and exchange racing tips with professional Nascar drivers. Check the company’s website for a full list of available cars and prices.
Scuba dive to Cancun’s underwater museum, named one of the Top 25 Wonders of the World by National Geographic. The underwater sculpture park contains more than 450 permanent life-size monuments and attracts over 750,000 visitors each year.
For those with little to none scuba diving experience, Aquaworld offers beginner to expert level lessons. Also enjoy fishing, snorkeling and parasailing in the beautiful Cancun waters.
Sample an endless amount of water activities at Cancun’s top beaches. Check out Playa Tortugas and relax on lounge chairs and Mexican dining at the beach’s several restaurants. Dig in on ceviche, shrimp and margaritas.
Bring your walking shoes when you visit one of the less crowded beaches in Cancun, Playa Delfines. Walk along the white sand shore and take surfing lessons in the crystal-clear water. The beach also offers free parking.
