The Mayan Jungle Tour

mayan-jungl-tour
Mayan Ceremony

If you seek adventure, ecological and extreme tours, look for the Mayan Jungle tour, undoubtedly the most complete.
Here, you will fly on zip lines over the jungle, you will descend into a cenote, do rappel, swim in a cenote (sink hole) walk through muddy  places and shout inside the 4X4 vehicle that will lead you trough the Mayan jungle.

In addition you will take part in a Mayan purification ceremony with a real chaman and of course, you’ll be super happy at the end of the day. My favorite part? the underground river, its beautiful and breathtaking.

Although it seems that it is only for young people in our group there were two couples of  50 years who truly enjoyed the tour, not to mention that they did not know how they came to book this activity. It was great and I hope to return with my children very soon, just have to make shure that they weigh enough to ride the zip line and that they can rappel down the cenote, I do not stop recommending the Mayan Jungle Tour to all who ask me. ¿Where to go?  if I already know all the parks and archaeological sites in Cancun? Or what else there is to visit in Cancun? This is not new, but I think we should cultivate love for outdoor activities and educate people to practice tourism in places that care for nature, now that we live in a world as modern and inside intelligent buildings, it seems that we are going to end up as in the movie Wall-E! Don’t you think? Aaah one more thing, now you can do the  Mayan Jungle tour and visit Tulum at the same time.

Swim with Dolphins in RivieraMaya

The Riviera Maya covers the southern coast of Quintana Roo, from Puerto Morelos to Tulum. All along the Riviera Maya there are plenty of hotels and resorts that offer wonderful amenities and impressive infrastructure.

Because of Its location  sometimes is not easy to leave these complexes, but swimming with dolphins in the Riviera Maya is one of the most accessible since the dolphinarium in Puerto Aventuras offers free transportation from any hotel from Puerto Morelos to Tulum. No matter which of the three different dolphin interaction programs you choose, your not going to have to pay extra to get to the dolphinarium in Puerto Aventuras to do your activity.

But Puerto Aventuras is not the only option to realize your dream of swimming with dolphins. if you’re in the Riviera Maya, Xcaret and Xel-Ha have excellent swim with dolphins  programs that you can take during your visit to these parks. You just have to consider that in any of these alternatives is very important to book with time, because swimming with dolphins is an activity that is done in small groups so space is limited and you do not want to stay out.

Cozumel vs Isla Mujeres

mexican-caribbean-island
Cozumel or Isla Mujeres

If you want to visit an island, Isla Mujeres is the best ride you can take, definitively the crossing by boat to the island is more enjoyable, beautiful and fast compared with the visit to Cozumel.

Once you arrive to Isla Mujeres you’ll be in North Beach which is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful beaches in this world. The small and unique village of Isla Mujeres surrounds you with an atmosphere of relaxation and freedom that your not going to feel in any other place of the Riviera Maya. Although many people prefer to experience crossing by ferry to the island, I think the best and economic option is a boat tour  called The Islander that has a beach club on Isla Mujeres. There you will have the best beach with all the comfort you can get: bath, restaurant and bar on the beach at a super price. If you choose to go by ferry you will not find these facilities unless you pay for them.

You can do different activities on the  Isla Mujeres or Island of Women  like: rent golf carts, bicycles, swimming with dolphins, visit the Sea Turtle Farm, snorkeling on the reef or jug in the park, and shopping. Indeed Cozumel is definitely the best option if you want to have a good day of snorkeling or scuba diving, taking a submarine ride  below 30 meters underwater or diving! The reefs in Cozumel are superior in beauty than in Isla Mujeres, so the call is yours!
