My favorite thing about Cancun is the water, the perfectly warm, turquoise water.
Cancun is full of stunning beaches, revitalizing cenotes, alluring natural sea aquariums, and refreshing pools.
See some of the ways you can experience the waters in Cancun:
The Caribbean seas are the best. The temperature is always perfect, the sand is white and soft, and the water is a beautiful array of blues and greens.
A cenote is a natural pit, or sinkhole resulting from the collapse of limestone bedrock that exposes groundwater underneath. The word cenote comes from the Yucatec Maya “ts’onot” meaning “well” or any location with accessible groundwater.
Cenote water is usually really clear and fresh as it comes from rain water that has been filtered through the ground.
The fresh dolphin pools and snorkel sea beds at Xel Ha
Xel Ha is an aquatic experience theme park within the Riviera Maya. It is a bit of a ways from Cancun (76 mi or 122 km) but a day trip was worth it. The park is named after a Mayan archeological site.
Activities include: swimming with dolphins, snorkeling, scubadiving, zipbike and more.
How would you like to soak in your hotel pool and enjoy the view of the beautiful ocean and the horizon at the same time?
Cancun definitely has its charm in spite its touristy aspect.
