Most visitors to Cancun don't see much beyond their resort in the Hotel Zone and maybe an obligatory trip to the Mayan ruins at Chichen Itza. Here are five alternative Cancun day trips that we think you shouldn't miss.
With some new friends along for the ride, we had the pleasure of checking out Cenote Dos Ojos just outside of beautiful Akumal, Mexico. Come along with us as we explore this awesome cenote phenomenon of limestone clear pools and underwater caves.
The Mayan Riviera has a reputation for being expensive and touristy. There's some truth to this, but it's possible to check out some of the best sites in the area for not much more than the cost of decent latte. The little beach town of Akumal wins big points for delivering one of the coolest attractions in the area for almost nothing: snorkeling with endangered green sea turtles.
With a little uncertainty and trepidation we set out for the first time by collectivo to check out the beach and turtles in Akumal. Who knew we would enjoy ourselves so much?
After being in Playa del Carmen so long we get a chance to go on a little side vacation with some visiting good friends from back home. We were going to be staying at a nice little all inclusive hotel named Gran Bahia Principe for a few days. Now when I say little, I mean only in comparison to a city. The place is huge!
