Happy new year! As we welcome 2018 and say adios to 2017, we thought we would take a look back at the awesome year of Cancun adventures we have had. Check out our top 5 Cancun adventures from 2017!
1. Isla Contoy from Cancun
One of our most exclusive adventures of the year, Isla Contoy is a tiny, uninhabited island off the coast of Cancun that will take your breath away. It is a bird watcher’s paradise, an isolated and untouched beach and a unique adventure in that only 200 visitors are permitted each day. This is a Cancun adventure that brings you back in touch with your natural side, no phones, no electricity, just you, the sky and the deep blue sea.
2. Swimming with whale sharks in Cancun
This is a HUGE Cancun adventure and one that you absolutely cannot miss. The short season and the limited number of boats permitted to provide adventures with the biggest fish in the sea make this an exclusive Cancun tour, worth a special trip! Whale shark season in Cancun runs from May to September, the mid-summer months bringing you the best chance for a giant encounter. Do not miss this incredible Cancun excursion!
3. The Equinox at Chichen Itza
Chichen Itza Mexico is one of the new Seven Wonders of the World. Visiting Cancun and NOT seeing Chichen Itza is like going to Egypt and not seeing the pyramids, it’s a must! While Chichen Itza is a treasure every day of the year, there are certain times that are just a little extra special. A Chichen Itza tour during the Spring or Fall equinox will allow you to experience the wonder of the “Descent of the Serpent”, a play of light and shadow on the Kukulkan pyramid that attracts visitors from around the world to witness this marvel of architecture, astronomy and a little bit of magic and mystery.
4. Snorkeling in Cancun
Snorkeling in Cancun and the Riviera Maya is one of our VERY FAVORITE THINGS TO DO IN CANCUN! We’d go snorkeling every day if we could, getting underwater is such a great way to relieve stress, disconnect from technology and immerse yourself (literally) in nature. Cancun sits on one of the best and most famous reefs in the whole world, the perfect climate and crystal-clear waters make it the ideal destination for snorkelers and divers.
5. Playa del Carmen Aquarium
We are always excited to explore new attractions in the Mexican Caribbean and we are just delighted with the new aquarium in Playa del Carmen! This modern facility makes it easy for guests to discover the magic of the reefs without getting wet! The installations are educational and fun, with more than 200 marine species calling the aquarium home. This is a perfect Playa del Carmen excursion for families, get up close and personal with the most incredible creatures of the sea and learn how we can preserve and conserve the ocean for future generations to enjoy.
Happy new year to you all and huge thanks for joining us on our Cancun adventures, even if it’s just virtually today! Let us help you plan your 2018 Cancun vacation, you deserve it!
