Vacations in Cancun and the Riviera Maya consists of hundreds of miles of coastline, beaches and gorgeous Caribbean waters. You won’t find a better place on Earth that is better for water fun, water sports, adventure and discovery…both on top and underneath the surface. How can you pass that up?
The Riviera Maya has some of the best snorkeling and scuba locations and conditions in the world. And let’s not the forget the fun little hybrid called “Snuba.®” It has the world’s second largest coral reef and the largest in the Americas. Can you imagine the colorful and amazing marine life that is teeming just below the surface?
The Puerto Morales National Reef Park (Parque Nacional Arrecife Puerto Morelos) is largely protected and one of the best destinations for snorkeling around. Not only in the area but in the world. There are also thousands of cenotes, or underground sink holes, that you can snorkel and dive in. This is one of the most unique things to do in the world and an activity that really makes a Riviera Maya holiday stand out.
But if you don’t wanna’ relax under the water then you can get out and do some adventure-filled, adrenaline using activities like jet skiing, wind surfing, kayaking (fresh or salt water) and parasailing far above the water. You can gear and instructions from local tour operators and facilitators. It doesn’t matter if you’re a novice or a seasoned adrenaline junky-you can do it all.
And don’t forget fishing. Get out there and do some fly-fishing, drift-fishing and even go after big sport fish on a deep sea fishing experience. Take a couple of hours and go earn your dinner! You can even have cleaned, filleted and served to you later on at a local restaurant. How is that for fresh sea food?
There’s romance in them there waters, too! Take a day time catamaran cruise or charter a yacht and take a group or your honey to remote Caribbean Islands. The sunset cruises in Riviera Maya will cause love to develop if it isn’t already there, so watch out!
