Top 5 Places To Visit in Cancun, Mexico Travel Guide Blog

Cancun, Mexico, is one of the most beautiful places in the world. The everlasting sunny summer weather, beaches, and rich historical sites make this city an ideal and exciting travel destination! 

When you decide to travel to Cancun, it can be overwhelming to decide how to spend your time there. Here are a few places to go that will appeal to everyone from beach and boat enthusiasts to those curious about Mexico's rich history. 

1. The Cancun-Isla Mujeres Bay

The bay that lies between the city of Cancun and the island of Isla Mujeres has some of the world's clearest water and makes a wonderful place to go boating. The climate in Cancun leads to a unique mix of marine life off the coast of Cancun that cannot be found anywhere else in the world. 

TRAVEL TIP: For available transportation from and to Isla Mujeres, please see options here.

You'll likely see dolphins, sharks, turtles, brightly colored fish, and expanses of coral reefs. Dolphins are most active at dusk and dawn, so a great way to explore this bay is with Moana's Cancun sunset cruise that takes you through the water at sunset. At this time of day, you'll be treated to a fine dinner and see families of dolphins enjoying the water too!

2. Playa Delfines

One of the most popular attractions in Cancun is its beaches. The most well-known is the Playa Delfines. This beach offers its visitors their perfect idea of a beach day, with an expanse of white sand, crystal clear waters, and even frequent dolphin sightings. There are dolphin sightings and even interactions so often that it became the reason for the name “playa delfines,” as it translates to “dolphin beach” in English.

3. Mayan Museum of Cancun

Also known as the “Museo Maya de Cancun,” the Mayan Museum of Cancun allows travelers to learn about the rich history of the area they are seeing while getting out of the heat. Visitors can discover how the native people lived in Mexico before the outside world discovered them. The Mayan Pyramids are a unique feature of Mexico, and at the Mayan Museum, you'll learn how they were built and their spiritual significance. 

4. Chichen-Itza Mayan Ruins

After learning the history of Cancun at the Mayan Museum of Cancun, visitors can make a day trip to Chichen-Itza to see the pyramids of the Mayan people in person. The massive pyramids at Chichen-Itza were built thousands of years ago in present-day Mayan City, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Because of how relatively undisturbed the location is, you'll be able to see these beautiful pyramids exactly how the Mayan people did so many years ago. For ease and convenience, you may book your transportation to and from Chichen-Itza on this link.

5. Cancun Underwater Museum

Right off the coast of Cancun is the most interesting museum in the world, the MUSA. The MUSA, or Cancun Underwater Museum of Art, is an expanse of statues and sculptures at the bottom of the water off the coast of Cancun. The statues are sunken anywhere from 3 to 6 meters deep, which is ideal for snorkeling, scuba diving, and boating with a glass bottom. 

This underwater art museum was created in 2008 with the goal of encouraging the growth and restoration of coral reefs because the art provides a place for natural growth.

Final Thoughts 

Cancun is unlike any other place in the world and is sure to be an exciting adventure for anyone who visits. There is something for everyone in this city, from beaches, scuba diving, historic sites, and museums. Following these suggestions for places to visit will ensure you have a delightful trip and experience the best of Cancun, Mexico!
