Cancun … a fabulous location to see.. In the heart of Cancun is Urbano Kabah Park, also known as the Kabah Ecological Park. This natural oasis is a popular spot for a stroll, a jog, or a picnic and consists of a two-kilometer long trail that cuts through a mix of tall palm trees and lush gardens. The park is particularly popular for families traveling with kids due to its playground and petting zoo. There’s plenty of wildlife to watch out for, too, including iguanas, the raccoon-like coatis, deer, a type of small wild pig called a peccary, and even the occasional spider monkey. It’s particularly good for birdwatchers, especially during migration season when species from as far as the US and Canada winter here. Other highlights include the Casa Maya Museum with its history of the development of the region.
Chichen Itza is arguably one of the largest tourism draws near Cancun and was even named one of the new 7 Wonders of the World. This ancient Mayan site was one of the largest Mayan cities and was a major economic power in the region. On top of it all, Chichen Itza is thought to be one of the great mythical cities of Mesoamerica.
Chichen Itza is home to many ancient buildings that are still in great condition including the Great Ball Court, The Temple of Warriors, El Caracol (an ancient observatory) and the most popular – El Castillo (The Castle).

Get in the water and interact with friendly dolphins, sea lions, and manatees at Dolphin Discovery Isla Mujeres – one of the most popular experiences in Cancun.
You’ll get to do fun activities with the dolphins, like foot pushes, dorsal tows, kisses, hand targets, and more. Watch playful sea lions walk and interact with their human companions and then head over to the manatee habitat where you can feed the large mammals lettuce and learn all about their nutrition, habitats, and manatee conservation efforts.
This experience includes roundtrip ferry transportation to Isla Mujeres from Cancun, interactive experiences with dolphins, sea lions, and manatees, access to the VIP lounge, continental breakfast, and an all-you-can-eat lunch buffet with open bar.
It takes a two-hour drive and a 20-minute ferry ride to get to Isla Holbox from Cancun. But more and more nature-lovers are being drawn to this sleepy, remote fishing village, and “Bird Island” is one of its main attractions.
Located on the picturesque Yalahau lagoon, the 200-foot-wide island is protected by mangrove swamps, brush and cactus, with just two observation points and walkways. No humans are allowed to walk on the island.
As a result, it’s a bird-watcher’s paradise that’s home to over 150 different species of birds crowding the island’s trees and shoreline. The ones we saw during our two visits included double crested cormorants, ducks, reddish and snowy egrets, frigate birds, herons, roseate spoonbills, and rare white pelicans.
