Guide to Cancun

The first thing you can do before traveling to Cancun and no traveler will let me lie, is to investigate a little about the city and the activities you can do there. This way, it will be much more comfortable in the organization you will have to get services and choose between those that suit you. For example, if you want to walk freely around the city and also plan to do activities outside, you can have a Cancun Car Rental with which you will move easily if you arrive from the airport. You can hire a Cancun Airport car rental service, or if you want to move for a day or from the airport to your hotel and vice versa, you can have a Cancun Airport Transportation. This also applies to the tours you are going to do around the city and its surroundings. And why not, the accommodation, but we will talk about this later.

The options of services in the city are extensive, because being a tourist city, Cancun specializes in offering its visitors the best experiences in all areas, with which you can enjoy a personalized trip.

A little bit to close to the city:

First time in Cancun Activities

The activities you should do if it is your first time in the city are the following:

Visit the hotel zone, probably your hotel reservation or some of the activities will be in this area of the city, where you should know are all the beaches of the city. So to say that you visited Cancun is not valid if you did not see the hotel zone of the city.

In the hotel zone, not everything is sun, sand, and sea.

You can go for a walk around the nearby plazas like Marina Town Center Puerto Cancun, Plaza La Isla, Kukulcan, Caracoles (among other smaller ones where you can get jewelry, souvenirs, clothes, essential travel items like towels, sunscreen, among others).

In the evenings you can visit the night clubs, where you will have unbridled fun until dawn, and if you don’t want to be on the streets so late, you can have fun in the mornings at the beach clubs like Mandala Beach of Mandala Group.


Cancun is a beautiful city, where you will be able to know great places, one of these is downtown, where you will surely enjoy a wonderful meal because generally, tourists from Cancun visit downtown to find restaurants with typical delicious food.

If you are looking for a restaurant that completely covers your gastronomic expectations, you can visit downtown, Yaxilan Avenue, where you will find the grill and the arches, two restaurants with typical delicious food and excellent service (something that characterizes a lot of Mexicans)

Also visit Parque de Las Palapas, where you can taste delicious corn in glass originally called by the inhabitants as “Esquite” right here, you will find restaurants where you can eat quesadillas, tortas, tacos, and delicious tamales.

Main Attractions

Mayan Museum of Cancun

At the Mayan Museum in Cancun, you can learn about the incredible beauty of the Mayan culture, where you can also visit and enjoy a small archaeological site called San Miguelito.

El Rey Archaeological Zone

Like San Miguelito, El Rey is a tiny archaeological zone that represents the small towns that inhabited the city before it was colonized.

Ventura Park

This is one of the favorite parts of visitors. Because, during your visit, you will be able to enjoy a fresh day in a pool with waves and artificial rivers, slides of more than 10 meters high, open bar (for adults, or people over 18 years old with identification), buffet for all ages and activities organized by the staff of the park.

Wheel of Fortune

This is one of the youngest attractions of Cancun because it is placed outside Plaza la Isla in Cancun. Where you can have a great view of the hotel zone, and if you like, then take a tour of the plaza, shops, the pier, and some restaurants overlooking the Nichupte Lagoon. 

Scenic tower of Cancun

Like the Wheel of Fortune, Cancun’s scenic tower is one of the most visited attractions by tourists from all over the world and locals. Because it offers a panoramic view of the hotel zone, the Caribbean Sea, and the Nichupte lagoon that you cannot miss, this activity is ideal for children and adults.

Enjoy your trip to Cancun!
