What to Do in Cancun
There are many things to do in Cancun besides drinking at the beach (although let’s face it, when you’re on vacation, that’s always a fun option). But maybe you’ve had enough margaritas at Playa Delfines, and now you’re thinking: what now?
Here are 9 different and exciting suggestions for what to do in Cancun.
Feeling gutsy and courageous? Want to cross something off your bucket list? Come to Ventura Park’s, AaahVentura has something exciting for you. Climb up the platform, allow their professionals to attach you to the harness, and jump head first for over 60 feet!
Cancun’s Hotel Zone is the perfect place to take a helicopter tour. They have great prices and the view you get is unforgettable. You can even view sea-turtles swimming in the ocean from all the way up there! There’s only one way to truly appreciate the vastness of hotel and beach options Cancun has to offer, and that is from the aerial vantage point of a helicopter.
Ventura Park has a lot to offer anybody. One their most popular attractions are their zip-lines. Zip through the air at amazing speeds and impressive heights. Some you hold on, and zip over a large cenote, and let go at a predetermined spot, and drop into the water. Others, you strap on a harness, and you look down upon a forest canopy.
Deep Sea Fishing Tours:
Cancun is known for its excellent fresh seafood, so it’s no surprise it offers outstanding options when it comes to Deep Sea Fishing tours. Enjoy the stunning seascape while sipping on a beer and fishing for a variety of fish including: Blue or White Marlin, Atlantic Sailfish, Mahi Mahi, Black-fin Tuna, Grouper, Snapper, and Barracuda.
Of course, everything depends on the season, so check beforehand. Many services include bringing back your catches to a local seaside restaurant to get your catch cooked professionally with local flavors and spices.
If you want to ride a roller-coaster in Cancun, you have to come to Ventura Park. One of their many fun and exciting attractions includes a roller-coaster that comes with a great view of the ocean once at the peak. They even have an innovative roller-coaster/zipline hybrid everyone should try!
In case you haven’t seen this before: Kite-surfing is a kite, which looks like a parachute, attached to a surfboard with you on top. If you aren’t experienced, there are private lessons available. Although the wind conditions have to be right, the speed and jumps you can make are stunning & impressive.
Ventura Park is world-renowned for its multitude of entertainment options that can’t be found elsewhere. A perfect example of this is their go-kart track. Speed through the ocean breeze on their winding 275 yard track at 25 mph.
