Go swimming in a cenote. It’s a very cool experience and one unique to the Yucatan Peninsula.
Appreciate the history and the culture with a trip to Tulum to see the Mayan ruins or to the UNESCO larger site of Chichen Itza.
Take the ferry to Cozumel for great snorkeling.
Visit the Eco park Xel-Ha. You can learn so much without feeling like you are taking a toll on the natural beauty of the land.
Harness your adventurous side and go parasailing so you can see all of Cancun!
Visit Bonanza Ranch. This is a great family owned property where they take in animals that have been mistreated or left alone. They give you a tour of the ranch and offer horseback riding trips through the jungle that end at a cenote you can swim in.
For a quieter vacation, especially for families, you can't go wrong with a one hour transfer to a resort in Rivera Maya.
Use the transportation included in the package. Don't worry about renting a car as the resort can set up excursions that are worry-free.
Bring lots of U.S. one and five dollar bills for easy tipping and bargain shopping. It makes it really easy to bargain in straw markets and with street vendors when you have plenty of the proper amount of money to exchange.
Make sure your passport has at least 6 months left before expiration. Make a copy of your passport photo/info pages to carry with you and leave your passport locked in your hotel.
