You’ll want to dive straight in when you see the bright turquoise Caribbean waters in Cancun. Most resorts in the region, such as Moon Palace, have their own stretch of white sandy beach. Feeling adventurous? Parasail along the coastline, hop on a jet ski or try your hand at stand up paddle boarding!

TAKE A DAY TRIP TO ISLA MUJERES

Head off on a day trip with Aquaworld to these beautiful paradise islands just a short hop from Cancun. With a laid back attitude, your biggest stresses will be deciding between mojitos and margaritas on the beach. It’s a vibrant place, with candy coloured buildings and big murals adorning the walls. Once you’re done relaxing, hire a golf buggy to explore the island, or pick up some souvenirs in the shops.

SWIM, SNORKEL OR DIVE IN THE CENOTES
