About 2.5 hours outside of Cancun lies one of the pinnacle archaeological wonders of the ancient Mayan world. I’m speaking of Ek Balam. This magnificent national treasure dates back to 100 B.C., is impeccably preserved, and offers invaluable insights into the life and times of the ancient Mayan peoples. If you’re on vacation and looking for some great outdoor activities in Cancun, look no further than Ek Balam.

While it may seem that Cancun is all white sand beaches and Senor Frog-going, fun-loving party people, there’s a lot more to this little slice of the Yucatan than first blush reveals. For one thing, Cancun and its surrounding area has been premier real-estate for centuries, which is why the ancient Mayan civilization settled here so many years ago, and it’s also why so many ruins are available for your perusal today. Beyond that, the Mayan Riviera is a hotbed of beautiful wilderness – mangrove swamps, beaches, woods, jungle, and of course glistening Caribbean ocean.

Right in the middle of Cancun’s hotel zone, you’ll find one of the great archeological structures that has made Cancun the international tourist destination that it is today. Forty-seven of these structures are estimated to have been inhabited by the Mayans as early as 900 AD, and make for a great little stop in the middle of the typical hustle and bustle of any visit to Cancun. It’s cheap, relatively affordable (roughly $4), and a great stroll through history just minutes away from your hotel.

Right in the heart of the Mayan Riviera lies a small town called Akumal. If you haven’t been to Cancun or Playa del Carmen before you’ve likely never heard of it, but this little slice of heaven is worth a stopover. Just one hour south of Cancun you’ll find pristine white sand beaches, beautiful coral reefs for diving, and sleepy palm-frond huts selling tasty bites to eat. Akumal makes a great day trip from Cancun, and if you decide to pay Akumal a visit, here are some great things to do.

Here are some of the best spots to snorkel while in Cancun.

From tranquil white sand beaches to all-night bass-thumping discotheques and everything in-between, Cancun caters to all tastes. Popular any time of the year (but particularly so with the younger crowds during spring break), Cancun is the prime North American beach destination. There are so many things to do here one has to ask oneself whether it’s worth it to put down their Corona and enjoy the many activities or to just wile the hours away with Kenny Chesney playing in the background and do a whole lot of nothing – ah, decisions.

If you’ve come to Cancun and are looking for fun, then you’ve come to the right place. Rapidly becoming something of an all-inclusive beachside resort town, Cancun caters to all tastes and desires. From all-inclusive nightclubs, to dancing bonfire parties on the beach, there seems to be something for everyone. And if you’re the type of adrenaline junky looking to get out and about on some kind of Cancun outdoor adventure, then allow me to introduce to you the Cancun Speedway.
