Cancun: Explore The Natural Beauty

This was the first time I was visiting Cancun. No doubt, my excitement was at its peak. It is an exotic getaway. The balmy temperature all the year round and aquamarine colors have enticed me like nothing else. Whether you feel happy to chill on the beach or snorkel on the open sea, there are many ways to explore this beautiful city. Take a look at my guide to experience the best of Cancun.

  • Visit the local beach

The beautiful beaches of Cancun took me to paradise. However, they tend to get filled with tourists. Stray away from this and go to Playa Delfines. This is a public beach that is frequented by locals. Even though you might not find roving waiter there with a tray filled with margarita glass, you will get palapas and other drinks.

  • Check out the Mayan Ruins

I found Coba, Tulum, and Chichen Itza all doable in a day trip. However, it is a long trek. El Rey has been named after a skeleton which had been unearthed in this site. However, not everyone is aware of this. The Mayan heritage of this region has come alive in 47 stone sculptures which date back to 1250 A.D.

  • Go snorkeling among statues

This one was a must visit for me. The best possible way to check out MUSA, the sculpture garden underwater is from below the water surface. Do a booking for a snorkeling excursion with Aqua World that comprises vests, fins, masks, and tunes and drinks onboard. Here, you will also find colorful exotic fishes.

  • Shop in the local markets

Just give up designer-label and luxury shopping malls and dive into the Asian made fashion accessories, crafts, and home decors. This market is located in a downtown area with 100 shops.  I got souvenirs for my loved ones from this market.
