Most people who vacation in Cancun barely scratch the surface of all there is to see and do here.

And that’s cool. Cancun is the perfect place to relax on the beach and enjoy a few cocktails by the pool, just don’t be fooled into thinking that all-inclusive resorts, theme parks, and Spring Break parties are all it has to offer.

There’s so much more to this destination, but you need to know where to look.

Situated on the northeastern tip of Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, Cancun is the gateway to the Mayan World and a great jumping off point for exploring a region rich in history, culture, natural attractions, and biodiversity.

It’s also a popular destination for running, triathlons, yoga retreats, paddle boarding, fitness boot camps, and lots more, making it an ideal vacation spot for active independent travelers.
