Dream Vacation in Cancun

A June 2005 trip to Cancun by William Walker

Quote: In June we took our dream vacation to Cancun, Mexico. We had the time of our lives. We visited several beaches, the Mayan ruins of Tulum, and Xcaret, a beautiful eco-park, and shopped, dined in wonderful restaurants, and snorkeled in the crystal-blue waters!

Dream Vacation in Cancun

Overview

Quote:
We really enjoyed the beach, the snorkeling, and water activities. We visited the Mayan ruins of Tulum, Isla Mujeres (The Island of Women), Xpu-Ha Palace, Moon Palace, and Xcaret (a beautiful eco-park). We recommend taking the tours through the Sun Palace. This was our first trip to Cancun, and we wanted to see and do the most that we could. You cannot go all the way to Mexico and not see the sights! We really enjoyed the day trip tours, but we were really tired at night and did not get to enjoy the nightlife as much as we would have liked. If we get to return, we have seen the sights and will spend more time going out at night and just relaxing. Quick Tips: DO NOT GET SUCKERED INTO TAK...Read More

Best Things Nearby:Beach, shopping, downtown CancunBest Things About the Resort:Beach, very friendly and helpful staff, good food, nice clean rooms--cleaned and stocked daily, affordable gift shops, nice poolResort Experience:We were very impressed with The Sun Palace! The Sun Palace is just the right size, not too big and not too small, very comfortable. The location was great, far enough away from downtown to be quiet and peaceful, but just a short bus ride away when you wanted to shop or party. We really enjoyed the beach. It was very clean. There were a few large rocks along the water’s edge, which were nice to sit upon and added beauty to the beach...Read More

Isla Mujeres

Attraction

Quote:
We took a trip to Isla Mujeres through our resort. We were not really impressed with the beach or the city, but loved the snorkeling. The boat left from the beach and took you out into the clear area of the water, and you got off the boat in groups of about 10. The boat then left, which was a little scary, to get more people. Each group then swam and snorkeled, following their leader along the reef, rocks, and other formations. We were out in the water for about an hour before our boat came back to get us. The swimming in choppy water was tiring, but we got the see more than other snorkeling trips that we have been on. I am not sure that I would recommend this trip for small children or older a...Read More

Xpu Ha Beach

Attraction | "Snorkeling at Xpu-Ha"

Quote:
While at Xpu-Ha Palace, you can swim and snorkel in their lagoon. I would recommend this for children and beginning snorkelers because it is on the beach in a lagoon and the water is calm. You can use their snorkel gear free of charge for one hour, or use your own as long as you would like. There were not a lot of fish to see, but it was an inexpensive way to have fun.
