"Easy day trip" Day trips Tip by hartmany

Day trips, Cancún: 13 reviews and 28 photos


Get there early and expect an hour (plus swim time) for site seeing. The massive waves of tour buses start coming around 10am - 11am and then you'll have no chance of getting a picture without wandering tourist everywhere.

There's a small (sometimes no) entrance fee, and for a couple bucks, you can get a tour guide to walk around and give you the long history of the ruins and surrounding area.

There are hundreds of iguanas wondering around posing for a great picture - if you dare to get close.

Bring a swimsuit as there is a small, but impressive beach to enjoy.

Directions: 1.5 hours from Cancun. Get there early and go to Xcaret on the way back.

Review Helpfulness: 4.5 out of 5 stars
