Things to do in Cancun

More about Cancun

Mexico is hollering ‘adventure’ louder than Tarzan crying for his supper and if you fancy zip-lining through rainforests, exploring underground rivers or diving into the clear blue waters, then hold onto your sombrero as things are going to get exciting.


Mexico is steeped in history and there is so much for you to explore. Full of ancient ruins and customs passed through generations.


The Day of the Dead festival is one of the most famous festivals and is a national holiday with parades and much celebration.

Day of the Dead

Mexico guarantees good times and you’ll discover a wealth of: craft fairs, art galleries, local handicrafts, big-name brands and more bars and restaurants than you can shake a chocolate-covered churro at.



As the sun sets on Cancun the party animals come out to play and if you’re ready to dance until dawn amongst the very best live music venues, bouncing nightclubs and tempting tequila bars, this is the place to be for all the late night action.
