Hola! That’s “Hello” in Spanish.

When you travel to Cancun, Mexico you may want to know a few words so you can converse with locals. But you don’t have to be fluent. They’ll appreciate your attempt to speak their language.

Anyway…

You probably know that Cancun is a popular destination – millions of people visit each year. But the thing is tourist attractions can get crowded. Plus, it’s kind of fun to see and do things that others haven’t. Why? Because you’ll have great stories to tell your family and friends!

Here are five unique things I discovered to do in Cancun. Enjoy!

Explore Valladolid

Want to get away from the hustle and bustle of Cancun? Take a road trip to Valladolid, a charming colonial town. It’s about 100 miles west of Cancun and close to the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. While you’re in Valladolid, check out the Casa de Los Venados, a private Mexican folk art collection.

Visit the Tequila Herradura Sensory Museum

Tequila Herradura Sensory Museum is housed in the Hacienda San José del Refugio. You’ll learn the history of Tequila, art of tequila making through traditional techniques and tools, and how to properly drink the liquor.

Cancun Underwater Museum

Dive into MUSA (Museo Subacuatico de Arte) and check out over 450 sculptures off the coast of between Cancun and Isla Mujeres. They rest between 13 to 30 feet; the best way to see them is by scuba diving or snorkeling.

Are You Ready to Catch a Flight to Cancun?

If you want to have fun in the sun and get off the beaten path, head to Cancun, Mexico. Imagine diving into the water and seeing sculptures. How cool is that?

Even though I eat nuts and acorns, I like Apple Vacations. They have a wide range of options, including all-inclusive resorts.
