When you arrive at Isla Mujeres, you’ll have a couple of hours to explore before boarding the catamaran for the return trip. You can wander through the local village, which is full of exotic souvenir shops and local boutiques, or discover great places to sample authentic Mexican cuisine. You can also jump in the pristine water of the famous Playa Norte for some paddleboarding or snorkeling and see the local tropical wildlife. When you’re done sightseeing, spend some time playing at the beach and relaxing. It is also possible to book a private tour and sailing adventure—perfect for a romantic getaway.

Playa Paraíso in Tulum

Playa Paraíso is a small beach that lies at the base of an ancient clifftop castle. When you book a Tulum Private Tour with Cancun Adventures, you get the full insider experience. Our expert bilingual tour guides will tell you all about the history and culture of the Mayans while navigating the ruins they once inhabited. You’ll get to explore all the Mayan structures at Tulum, including Castillo, the clifftop castle overlooking the ocean, and the Templo de las Pinturas, which contains a partially restored mural. Then you can take a dip in the water at the beautiful beach behind the Mayan castle. You’ll also be treated to a meal of authentic Mayan cuisine, which will make you feel like you were transported to the past and dining with Mayan royalty.

Playa De Punta Venado and Coba Ruins

Everything about Playa de Punta Venado and the Coba Ruins is breathtakingly beautiful. The guided Coba & Reef Adventure takes you to another Mayan city, this time right in the middle of the Mexican jungle. The city of Coba is approximately 2,000 years old and contains a large network of stone causeways. At the Coba ruins, you’ll have the opportunity to climb the tallest Mayan temple, Nohoch Mul, which is 138-feet tall (42 meters). The view of the jungle from the top of the Coba ruins is stunning and also just happens to be the perfect place to catch your breath and snap some pictures.

After you’ve finished your Coba climb, the fun continues at Playa de Punta Venado, which is arguably the best beach in Cancun for swimming and snorkeling. The reef is filled with colorful coral, as well as tropical fish and other marine wildlife. Finally, finish the day at Cancun Adventures’ exclusive beach hideaway where you can relax and have lunch.
