Every year 18 million people arrive in Cancun via Cancún International Airport in search of incredible Caribbean beaches with white sand and blue water, modern hotels, and the impressive history from the Mayan civilization as witnessed by their awesome ruins.
Those who come to Cancún with a rental car after driving just 20 minutes from Cancún International Airport, will experience a city full of all sorts of activities.
Water sports are one of the favorite activities for visitors looking for contact with the colorful and dazzling submarine life. The beach is over 12 miles (20km) long with one of the biggest coral reefs in the world, and is great for diving and snorkeling. There are more than 20 aquatic activity centers where you can also go for fishing excursions on sailboats, swim in natural wells, wind-surf, kite-surf, or parasail.
And to continue enjoying nature nothing is better than getting back in your rental car and setting off for the ecological and adventure themes parks like Xcaret, Xel - ha, Wet’N Wild, or Xplor. Plunge into a river or natural well, enjoy water sports, swim with dolphins and sharks, be in contact with iguanas and birds and butterflies of the region for a unique experience. These theme parks are all fairly similar to one another so just choose one that offers entrance for around $100 dollars.
Visiting some of the islands near Cancún is almost obligatory for many visitors to the city. For example Isla Mujeres, just a few minutes away by boat, known for it’s gorgeous beaches and the tropical paradise of El Garrafón. On Isla Holbox (considered one of the most important ecological regions in the world) you can swim with whale sharks. And on Isla Contoy marvel at the nesting site of more than 150 species of marine birds.
There are so many tourist attractions in Cancún that the best way to take advantage of them is in a rental car. Once aboard it’s highly recommendable to take Federal Highway 307 and drive the stretch of the Cancún-Chetumal to Tulum to visit the archaeological ruins of a Mayan fortress from 1200 AD. Among the most important structures, at the foot of Tulum, is ‘The Castle’ that served as a lighthouse for mayan sailors, and which is located at the edge of a cliff. It offers a magnificent view!
