Top 5 Reasons to Travel to Cancun

Have you ever wondered why Cancun, Mexico is so popular? This city is positively charged with its own special brand of energy. From enthralling nightlife to radiant beaches to mysterious ancient ruins, what’s not to love? There is so much about Cancun that we want to tell you about, but for time’s sake, we’ll just cover our top 5 favorite reasons to visit this beloved destination. 

Mayan Ruins

To anyone planning a trip to Cancun, we absolutely have to recommend visiting any and all Mayan ruins. The opportunity to stand within such a historical landscape just simply cannot be passed up. There are quite a few different sites to potentially visit with different structures to see. Some of these ruins are going to be busier than other lesser-known ones, and some do not allow guests to climb on the ruins, so be sure to do your research to select the ruins that best suit your interests! You can either visit the ruins on your own, or book a tour as well.

MUSA, the underwater museum

This attraction is simply… breathtaking (sorry, we had to). MUSA, or Museo Subacuático de Arte, is an underwater sculpture museum located just off the ever-popular beaches of Cancun. Spread over 3 sites, these sculptures are made of concrete and provide a very lovely function other than something cool to look at – they also serve as an artificial reef for marine life! You can explore MUSA 3 different ways: glass-bottom boat tours, snorkeling, or scuba diving! These tours range from $30-$165, and demand does increase during certain times of the year, so plan accordingly! Pro tip: Whale shark season is June-September, and these gentle giants can be seen swimming through MUSA! (This also makes MUSA busier during this time).

Vast variety of foods

Cancun might just have the widest variety of culinary dishes of any of our destinations. With so many people that visit the wildly popular destination each year, countless phenomenal chefs have decided to call Cancun home to provide their services and special dishes. If there’s something you’re craving, you’re bound to find it here. We do, however, recommend trying some traditional Mexican dishes while you’re here. Foods like tamales, tacos, chilaquiles, sopa de lima, and churros are just a few of the must-tries in the city!

Immaculate beaches

Cancun’s beaches are some of the most beautiful and illustrious beaches you’ll ever walk upon! Sugar-white sands set upon warm turquoise waters, dotted with swaying palm trees that provide welcoming shade on a hot day. Did you know that the sands of Cancun’s beaches will not burn your feet? This is because the white color reflects more of the sun’s light and the sands are actually mostly made of crushed coral, which will naturally feel cool under your feet! Many of the beaches here also have a gentle slope to them, meaning you can walk pretty far out before it gets too deep. These beaches are perfect for relaxing, playing beach and water sports, and for snorkeling!

Amazing wildlife

The wildlife that can be found here is nothing short of amazing. You have the opportunity to see some rare and incredible animals both on land and in the water. The shimmering waters of Cancun provide a home to many popular animals like manatees, sea turtles, angelfish, stingrays and whale sharks. On land, rare animals such as tapirs, coati, quetzals, ocelots, and even jaguars can be found. 

These are just a few of the reasons Cancun is such a popular destination. We could go on and on about Cancun, but we’ll spare you from the long read and let you go experience everything else on your own!
