Cancun is located in the northeast on the Yucatán Peninsula, Mexico and borders the Caribbean Sea. It is known for its white sand beaches, turquoise sea, numerous resorts, and nightlife. In this video we’ll show you the top 10 things to do in and around Cancun.
10. Cancun Scenic Tower
The Cancun Scenic Tower is the highest attraction in the Riviera Maya. Here, you can take a ride up to an altitude of 262 feet, or 80 meters.
9. Visit the downtown
The 9th best thing to do in Cancun is to visit the downtown area. Downtown Cancun offers a great taste of local culture, with delicious street food, small shops, and cute parks.
8. Swim at nearby cenotes
At number 8 we have a truly refreshing and unique experience: swimming in the nearby cenotes. The Yucatan Peninsula in general is well-known for its cenotes.
7. Relax at the Hotel Zone
The Hotel Zone is the primary tourist area, filled with high-rise hotels, shops, bars, and restaurants. It is a 15-mile, or 24 km strip of beautiful white-sand beaches and deep blue water.
6. Cancun nightlife
Most nightclubs are located in the Hotel Zone and can get pretty wild. Coco Bongo is the most popular club in Cancun, featuring acrobats, cover bands and DJs.
5. Explore “local” Playa Tortugas
Located along a more quiet part of the Hotel Zone, Playa Tortugas offers a more local experience, with a relaxed atmosphere and clean sands. It’s also better for swimming, as the water is calm.
4. Isla Mujeres Day Tour
The fourth best thing to do in Cancún is to go on a day trip to the nearby Isla Mujeres. Only a 20 minute boat ride from Cancun, Isla Mujeres is a peaceful paradise known for its white-sand beaches.

3. Hidden gem “Isla Blanca”
About 12.5miles or 20km north of the city of Cancún sits the stunning Isla Blanca. You can get here by local collectivo, which leaves near the Farmacia Canto, at the corner of Avenida López Portillo and Calle siete about 3 times a day.
2. Day trip to Chichén Itzá
A trip to Cancun isn’t complete without visiting one of the 7 World Wonders. Chichén Itzá is located about 3 hours away from Cancun by car or tour bus. It was once a vibrant city with a diverse population of Mayan people extending well into the tens of thousands.

1. Dive/snorkel at Underwater Museum & Reef
The best thing to do in Cancun in our opinion is to go scuba diving or snorkeling at the MUSA “Underwater Museum of Art” and the Manchones Reef. Located only 30 minutes away from Cancún, this Underwater Museum is home to 500 life-size sculptures that are used to promote coral, algae, and other marine life.
