6 Exciting Things to Do in Mexico

Nothing beats sitting on white sandy beaches that meet perfectly clear blue green waters with gently rolling waves crashing against the shore. That’s one of the many reasons people from all over the globe head to Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula every year! Aside from enjoying the stunning beaches, there are other places you can’t miss out on while you’re there visiting. Continue reading below to learn about 6 of The Yucatan Peninsula’s most exciting places to experience.


For thousands of years, Chichen Itza has been known as one of the great cities of Central America. Here, you can view some of the massive ground stone buildings that were one Mayan Ruins on the nearly 5 kilometers (3.1 miles) of land full of archaeology and thick forest surroundings.


If you’re infatuated with sea turtles, make your way to Akumal Beach to swim in the shallow waters where three different varieties of sea turtles live. A lifejacket is required and lifeguards are always on duty since the waters have recently turned into a preserved area to protect the turtles.


If sharks don’t scare you, go to Isla Holbox to see the lightly speckled whale sharks. Beware, these whale sharks are named appropriately, weighing up to 20,000lbs and reaching almost 30ft long!


Go to Cozumel to snorkel and scuba dive or to simply hike through the luscious green jungle areas.


If you need to relax for a day, go to Tulum for sunbathing and yoga on the beach. The area is full of healthy food options, spas and other great activities.


Last but not least, grab your sunscreen and rent an inflatable kayak and head out on the Bacalar Lagoon to feel like the pirates of the 17th Century.


The Yucatan Peninsula is one of the most diverse and exciting places to travel in all of Mexico. From the stunning landscape to the vibrant culture, the Yucatan has a little something for everyone.
