Cancun … an amazing place to see.. A must-do while in Cancun is to take a trip up the Scenic Tower (Torre Escenica). Something of a landmark in the hotel district due its height – it’s 110 meters tall – as well as its pencil thin base, the tower is a fun diversion for those wanting a birds-eye view of the city, as well as its many beaches and the surrounding coastline. While a set of steep steps can be climbed, by far the best way to reach the top is to simply take a seat in the large round elevator that gradually, as it rises and rotates, becomes an observation deck. It’s a particularly attractive structure at night when it’s lit up to resemble a Mayan representation of a flower.
Downtown is one of the many places in Cancun most tourists seem to skip in exchange for beach visits or other activities. But if you want a more authentic feel of Cancun away from the Hotel Zone (which sometimes feels like the Vegas strip) then you’ll want to head downtown. Downtown is home to a plethora of activities and restaurants offering a look into local life, a trip here is one of the better things to do in Cancun for sure.
If you are looking to do a bit of souvenir shopping Mercado 28 (Market 28) is the perfect place. Mercado 28 is a flea-market style shopping area that has an abundance of handmade items, pottery, t-shirts, and souvenirs. Expect to bargain with the shop owners, most of them can be aggressive with their pricing but if you are willing to haggle you might just manage to find yourself a great deal. If you ever land Cancun and you search for a Cancun airport transportation you can get in touch with Land Savvy Transfers in Cancun.
Spend the day exploring all the adventures at Extreme Adventure Park, complete with access to your own private ATV (all-terrain vehicle) for a fun-packed day of adventure in Puerto Morelos.
Puerto Morelos is home to the second largest great barrier reef in the world and some of the most famous cenotes (naturally-formed sinkholes filled with groundwater).
Start your day with snorkeling in the clear blue waters and explore the coral reef. You’ll get to see a variety of colorful sea life including fish, starfish, anemones, and more – you might even spot a turtle.
The Museo Maya de Cancun (a.k.a. Cancun Mayan Museum) opened in 2012 in Cancun’s busy Hotel zone, right next to the Omni Hotel. It’s a must-see for anyone interested in Mayan history, art, and archaeology.
Spending a couple of hours exploring the museum is a great way to avoid the midday sun and heat. The museum’s 55,000-square-foot property includes the well-shaded San Miguelito archaeological site, which is home to 40 ancient Maya structures (including a 26-foot-tall pyramid). We saw numerous iguanas among the ruins during our visit.
Inside the museum you’ll find two permanent exhibition halls- one on the archaeology of Cancun and the Yucat?n Peninsula (the state of Quintana Roo), and one on Mayan culture. The third hall houses temporary exhibits.
