Mostly you find yourself on the beach or in a resturant eating American food or maybe splashing out on luxuary item's
it seems the common thing to do here. If your like me, just passing through on a long exploration of the country then don't worry, there is something for everyone, but it comes with a price of course. to make sure your trip runs smoothly you can arrange tours or activity's with your Hotel plus Transportation with there recommendations.
Mexico have the most intensly blue Ocean you could have seen, and nothings better then seeing below! you can get tours for Snorkeling and watching the colourful Marine world float right by you.
Xel-Ha can be done many way's along with others listed below. You can get Xel -Ha package on its own and make a day of it floating down the lazy rivers along the fishes or you can include Xceret and Chichen Itza, They will take you there , some include food and Tours. I found that it ends up cheaper (alot cheaper) booking when you are there, because sites like trip adviser are over charging and you will be very disapointed knowing you could save a pretty penny.
My highlight of Cancun was xcaret, it's a must! there are plenty of shows going on around the park showing off the culture and talents of the people in a traditional atmosphere. Food is amazing quality but a little pricey though, but very delicious. You can float down the Mayan themed lagoons, or rent a snorkle kit and take a swim with tropical fishes, sharks or dolphins, if thats not your thing you can just enjoy the atmosphere and chill out in luxuary. I highly recommend! go check out my Xcaret blog for further info.
Chichen Itza the history we all love and if you don't know you need to. you will definately get more out of your trip doing a tour here, there is a lot to be said about the rich Mayan history and you don't want to miss out. Chichen Itza is located inbetween Merida and Cancun so It would be a good way to see further outside of the luxuarious beaches of Cancun for a day or two.
