If you’re considering a Mexico vacation, there are Cancun hotels to satisfy every budget and every taste imaginable. But if you’re not into staying within the tourist zone, there are plenty of activities—some of them fun, some of them fascinating—that you can partake in that are within relatively easy reach of most Cancun hotels.
An activity that satisfies both “fun” and “fascinating” qualifications is a day trip to Chichen Itza, one of the most recognizable places on the planet. If you’ve ever watched a TV documentary about Mayan ruins or pyramids, you’re probably familiar with El Castillo, the impressive pyramid-like structure that was recently designated one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The trip from Cancun can take close to two-and-a-half hours, so make sure you’ve cleared your day before heading out.
