Cancun: What to do when you get there?

Comfortably nestled on the Caribbean coast, Cancun is one of the top Mexican holiday destinations. Located next door to Cuba it attracts holidaymakers and extreme sports lovers alike.

One of the biggest fascinations of Cancun is the breadth of water sports you can practice in the blue, limpid waters. It houses some of the world’s most stunning beaches and of course the Great Mesoamerican Reef, which is the second largest reef in the world.

With many exotic sea creatures visiting the Caribbean waters, you can enjoy a once in a lifetime snorkelling or scuba diving outing to see the mysterious animals in their natural habitat.

In the summer months, from June to mid-September, whale sharks come to the Mexican waters to feed on the plankton, microscopic plant matter. Whale sharks are gentle creatures that live in depths to 250m/800ft below sea level most of the year. So when they finally come up – you don't want to miss the opportunity to meet these amazing creatures and go snorkelling alongside them!

Don’t miss the opportunity to swim and snorkel with the fastest fish in the ocean, the sailfish! Every year, approximately from December to March, large groups of sailfish arrive to the warm Caribbean waters near Isla Mujeres chasing groups of sardines. This is the perfect moment for you to jump in and snorkel with them as they chase and hunt their prey.

Scuba divers can visit the world renowned Underwater Museum MUSA in Manchones Reef. It is a collection of more than 300 human sized sculptures that were created with the intention to protect the reef and encourage coral growth. Mexicans are very proud of their natural environment and intend to preserve it for future generations to enjoy as much as they have.
