Cancun/Riviera Maya Day Tours

Riviera Maya, Mexico is filled with activities and day tours for everyone. Which tour works best for you comes down to where your resort is located, how far you're willing to travel, your age, and adventure level. The northern part of the region including Costa Mujeres and Playa Mujeres has day trips to Isla Mujeres, snorkeling, and dolphin encounters relatively close to them. Cancun offers snorkeling, crystal boat tours, and whale shark quests. Playa del Carmen brings you closer to cenotes and several eco parks. Chichen-Itza, Tulum, and Coba are popular places to see Mayan Ruins, but travel distances can be far.
