Isla Holbox

Guests looking for off-the-beaten path experiences will love exploring the island of Holbox. Located 40 miles North West of Cancun, Holbox is a small fishing village that is separated from the mainland by a shallow lagoon, which gives sanctuary to thousands of flamingos, pelicans, and other exotic birds and creatures. Holbox is key to the Yum Balam ecological reserve, which is protected by international regulations and its topography combines rainforest, virgin beaches, lagoons, cenotes, and rivers.

Isla Mujeres

One of Cancun’s most popular day-trip destinations, Isla Mujeres is an enchanting island just a short ferry ride away from Cancun’s mainland. Visitors will spend two days exploring the island of women, named after Ixchel, the Mayan goddess of fertility, medicine, and the moon. A trip to this beautiful island would not be complete without a visit to Garrafon Park, Punta Sur and a snorkeling trip to the Underwater Museum, home to hundreds of underwater sculptures that double as a complete coral reef system.

Puerto Morelos

This action-packed trip will feature a variety of adventure activities like zip lining through the Mayan jungle and swimming in the crystal waters of cenotes. Because Puerto Morelos is the largest and most important sea port in the state of Quintana Roo and it is in close proximity to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef – the second largest in the world – this trip will also include a fishing expedition in the waters of Cancun.

Mayan Experience

Because of Cancun’s proximity to some of the world’s most renowned ruins, this trip will focus on the region’s Mayan culture. This exciting trip will feature some of the most famous and breathtaking Mayan sites in the region, including Tulum, the only Mayan site situated oceanfront. We will also visit the Cancun Maya Museum and Coba, home to Nohoch Mul, the tallest Mayan pyramid in the Yucatan.
