From Caribbean beach days, to feasting on tacos, exploring the ancient Mayan ruins and partying in the city, it’s time to discover everything a Cancun holiday has to offer!
Kicking off 2018 by visiting my favourite country in the world was pretty special! Mexico is the country that started my wanderlust almost 10 years ago. I’ve returned numerous times and even spent a month there as part of my 3 and a half month adventures when I started this blog.
I was excited to return for a different kind of adventure. Our weeklong trip with Teletext Holidays was all about showing off the best of this region. We checked into 5-star, all-inclusive resort Moon Palace Cancun, and spent our days road tripping around the Yucatan Peninsular, and our evenings enjoying the resort’s restaurants, bars and facilities. What a great start to the year.
Along with some awesome videos, it’s time to show you exactly why this region of Mexico is PERFECT for a holiday, especially if, like me, you can’t sit still for long.
9 AWESOME Things To Do On Your Cancun Holiday
Check Out The Mayan Ruins Of Tulum and Chichen Itza
You can’t visit Mexico and not learn about the Mayan civilisation. Start by visiting Chichen Itza (you could book onto a tour like this one which includes transfers and lunch)– the ancient ruins dating back to the 7th Century. When I first saw the main pyramid, El Castillo, I was in awe – to think something so vast and detailed was built so long ago! It still holds plenty of secrets too, making it all the more intriguing. While I managed to snap a few photos with barely a soul in sight, don’t expect it to be like this. Hoards of tourists from all over the world arrive by coach throughout the day, but with a little patience you might catch a rare moment of calm.
I also loved visiting the Tulum ruins, with their stunning position perched on a cliff edge overlooking the turquoise Caribbean Sea. After exploring the site on foot, head down the steps and cool off with a dip in the sea.
