Overview

There is plenty to do in Cancun. It was our first time there so we decided to do as much as possible. We went on a few tours. Isla La Mujeres (I explained my experience there in another section so I won't bore you). We did the Jungle Tour, which is great if you like snorkeling. You drive about 45 mins to a spot in the middle of the ocean and snorkel for 45 mins than drive back we used the speed boats(better than the jet ski everyone was complaining there butts hurt). We also did an ATV tour at the La Bonita Ranch, you can also go horse back ridding there. Great for an adventure seeker! You drive through a tree filled beach, take a rest and watch the people that went horseback ridding take the horses ...Read More

Awesome! Stayed at Continental (now called Caribe Real). It was good to know I would never starve or go thirsty,and its about the same price as if you would take a European Plan. The hotel is beautiful and has a Mediterranean style. When you walk in, the lobby is huge and beautiful. It’s an open area with high ceilings. Big rooms, marble floor, we had a king size bed bigger than I have ever seen before, big tub and separate shower in the bathroom, separate seating area with a coffee table and couch, a great view of the ocean and walking distance from downtown. Great staff always did what we needed. The main pool provides towels, and has a great entertainment staff. They had aerobics ...Read More

This place is great. Eat dinner there and then party there all night. Good food, great party. If you’re looking for a good time in Cancun, this is the place to be. The MC makes sure everyone is having a good time. They have a waterslide on top of the club (which only girls can go down) that drops you into the lagoon. They have the yard drinks, which you can refill all night long for free. If you’re looking for a night of dancing, interaction and games, this is the place to be. The food is good too (if you’re looking to eat some American food) and reasonably priced, then stay afterwards for the party.

Went here on the bar-hopping tour; it was great. The 2x1 card is good here. So we got dinner for 15 bucks for both of us including tip.

I booked through my hotel rep. It cost $45 and you get round-trip ferry and get to spend six hours at the Garaffon on Isla Mujeres. You get a buffet lunch and can snorkel ($2 reef fee and you get a snorkel you can keep), kayak, swim, lie in water tubs, and swim in the pool - and the ocean is gorgeous. Than you can go into town and do some sightseeing, shopping, or do as I did and lay out on the hammocks. Also, you can book with the entertainment card - he offers one for $45 to another part of the island.

The Greatest Show in Cancun. In our 10-day stay, we went three times, and I cannot wait to go there this year. The bartenders were great, dancing on the bars, and the music and shows were awesome. If you like Las Vegas shows, this is the place to be. They have Madonna, Michael Jackson, the Mask, people flying on ropes across the club, and then you can go down on the stage way one top. If you’re as lucky as I was (yeah, right!), you can get gated in by yourself in the front part of that stage and have to dance by yourself while everyone watches for 20 minutes. The light shows are great. While dancing on the bars, the bartenders blow whistles and feed you shots with a flashlight under your chin. If you ...Read More

On this tour you start out at a dock where you have to choose in advance when you book your tour if you want to drive a speed boat or jet ski for two. We booked the jet ski but when we got there we saw how uncomfortable they looked and luckly there was an extra speed boat. It not your normal jet ski, it has a square base where two people sit on and you have to drive for about 45 mins straight. The speed boat you get to sit in this little boat side by side and it just looked way more comfortable. After you drive out through the lagoon into the ocean you snorkel in the second largest reef in the world right in the middle of the ocean. If was beautiful but you snorkel for about 45 minutes and I got tir...Read More

For this tour you have to meet at Plaza Kulikan at the Ok Maugey Resturant. Here you check in and board an A/C bus (you can bring your own beer) where you are taken to the La Bonita Ranch. When you arrive at the Ranch, you are able to eat a small buffet lunch with toquitos, rice and soda (included in the price of the tour). Then you are separated in groups of ATV and Horseback riding tours. They explain to you the safety and then you go to the ATV and they show you how to ride them. They are semi-automatic. If you feel uncomfortable you can ride with someone. You drive the ATV around this huge obstacle course for about 45 minutes and than take a break by the beach you where can go swimming. W...Read More
