The Isla Mujeres Tour Luxury Sailing Adventure from Cancun Adventures gives you the opportunity to board a luxury catamaran and sail along the Cancun shoreline. You’ll also be able to explore the historic island, snorkel offshore, and enjoy a gourmet lunch onboard the boat.
Ancient Mayan Ruins
The Yucatan Peninsula is home to several different Mayan historical sites. Visit pyramids, temples, and other structures and learn about the Mayan way of life. Cancun Adventures offers excellent opportunities to tours these ruins which you can learn more about here.
We recommend taking a guided tour to get the most out of your Mayan explorations. When you book a tour specifically with Cancun Adventures you can enjoy an air-conditioned van for transportation to and from your hotel. Also included with this experience is an expert guide will tell you everything you want to know about the ancient culture and civilization. Climb the Nohoch Mul pyramid during your Express Coba Tour and enjoy one of the best views in Mexico. Visit a clifftop castle and cenotes (natural sinkholes filled with water) on the Tulum, Cenote & Yal-ku Snorkeling Adventure. Or explore Chichen Itza during the Chichen Itza Pyramids and Ruins Tour.
Ziplines and more!
One of the most adventurous tours you can enjoy while visiting Cancun is the Zipline and ATV Outdoor Adventure. Go off-roading through the jungle in a Polaris ATV to a hidden cenote that the ancient Mayans believed was a portal to the underworld. Ride a zip line or rappel into the cool water surrounded by stalagmites and stalactites. Then climb out on a rope ladder and walk a tightrope across the cenote into an anteroom where you can snorkel.
Surrounded by so much ocean, it would be a crime to leave water sports out of your Cancun adventure tours. One of our favorite places is Punta Venado beach, which you can visit on our Day Pass to Paradise Tour. This tour takes you to an exclusive beach club and includes opportunities for kayaking, paddle boarding, and snorkeling, as well as lunch and time on the beach.
Cruising & snorkeling
The Riviera Maya is a stretch of Caribbean coastline that is definitely worth exploring. Sail the shoreline in a luxury catamaran with our Riviera Maya Catamaran and Snorkeling Tour. Keep your eyes peeled for fish, stingrays, and turtles as you glide through the crystalline water. You’ll also have access to snorkel equipment and paddle boards, and you’ll be served lunch and drinks on the catamaran.
