Amazing Cancun, a must visit for everyone. A good place to get a close-up view of the area’s rich marine life is at Cancun’s Interactive Aquarium. After donning flippers and a snorkel, you’re free to swim around the facility’s enclosures surrounded by numerous species from stingrays to seahorses and clown fish. The real highlight, however, is the attraction’s “swimming with dolphins” experience, an exciting program that allows you to get up close and personal with these gentle sea creatures. Similar programs are also offered at two other nearby venues: Dolphin Discovery and Dolphinaris Cancun.
Cancun and the surrounding area is really well-known for its hidden underwear world. In fact, the underground rivers that flow in the Yucatan Peninsula are the longest network of underground rivers and caves in the world. There are a few places near Cancun where you can enjoy this network of crystal clear water, the most popular place being Xcaret (which is home to a plethora of unique activities).
Xcaret has three rivers you can float down and the slow-moving water is perfect for laying back and relaxing. A great break from the beach without being too far from the water. If you ever visit Cancun and you need a Cancun airport transportation you can call Land Savvy Transfers in Cancun.
Enjoy the beauty and history of Tulum on the Tulum-Tankah Cenotes Eco-Adventure Tour – the perfect way to learn more about Mayan history and culture and visit some iconic spots like the historic pyramids and breathtaking cenotes.
You’ll get transportation to and from Cancun to the sights and attractions in Tulum. Your guide will provide context to everything you see along the way, making sure you don’t miss a thing. You’ll also get access to the Tankah (Mayan word for “town center”) Eco-Adventure Park where you can visit four cenotes (naturally-formed sinkholes filled with groundwater) and even go swimming in them.
Your Tulum-Tankah Cenotes Eco-Adventure Tour tickets also include a zip line adventure, kayaking, and a buffet-style lunch.
Part art exhibit, part marine conservation initiative, the Cancun Underwater Museum was conceived by artist Jason deCaires Taylor as way to combine art and environmental science.
He was hired by the local government, which was looking for a way to allay damage caused by the 150,000 people who swim Mexico’s Mesoamerican Reef (the second-largest reef system in the world, after the Great Barrier) every year.
Taylor makes lifelike statues of local people from marine-grade materials, sinks them at depths of 15 to 30 feet, and then grafts coral nubbins on them to create gorgeous artificial reef art.
There are nearly 500 statues in two sections, Salon Manchones and Salon Nizuc, in an area of over 420 sq meters. There are also tentative plans to install several thousand more statues in the years to come.
