Non-touristy things to do around Cancun?
Posted 15 June 2008 - 04:40 PM
We were thinking of spending one day in Chichen Itza, but as it's the high season, I'm thinking it will be way too touristy for us.
Are there any other cool towns that would be fun to wander around or stop for lunch? We are considering going to some of the Haciendas, but we're not sure if you can just stop in for lunch if you aren't staying there. Does anyone know? Are there any Haciendas you recommend?
Are there any other fun, more local areas that we should check out? We'd like to stay within 3 hours of Cancun.
Thanks in advance!!!

Visit the restaurant/museum La Distileria, where you can taste up to 150 different tequillas and have dinner--approx $16.
La Casita orphanage-spend the day helping teachers and visiting with the children.
Visit Isla Contoy--island just north of Isla Mujeres. Only 200 visitors are allowed daily. Before arriving on the island ask to snorkel in the Ixlache reef.

The island is amazing, fun, and just plain old gorgeous.
We rented a golf cart for a week and you need it to get around. Go to North Beach and rent a chair on the beach or just go the swing bar for a cocktail.
If you drive the island, stop at Villa le Bella. There is a sign out front that says "beer so cold it will make your teeth hurt." It is a B&B but anyone can stop for a cold beer or homemade pina colada.
There is a turle farm and dolphin cove.
It is great.
