Laguna Nichupté

The Nichupte Lagoon is one of the most beautiful and representative sites you cannot miss during your visit to Cancun.

The Nichupté Lagoon is located on the left side of Cancun and borders the Caribbean Sea on the left side of the hotel zone. 

One of the activities you can do in the Nichupte Lagoon is to tour the lagoon in a yacht or a small boat. However, if you do not wish to tour the lagoon and prefer the tranquility of the site, you can also bring a hammock and hang it in the kiosks in front of the lagoon or organize a picnic in the Art Garden (in front of the lagoon).

Cancun Night clubs

Cancun nightclubs are ideal, no matter if you are an 18-year-old or an adult. This place has the perfect club for you, from themed shows to extravagant foam parties in an amazing music environment, so you won't stop dancing all night long.

Getting tickets to nightclubs is really easy in Cancun. Usually, outside the nightclubs, you will find representatives selling tickets to enter the place; prices are usually higher on the day of the event than when you buy them in advance. Another advantage of the hotel zone is that it won't take you more than 10 minutes to get from one nightclub to another, since these places are located at a maximum distance of 0.5 km from each other.

Cancun downtown

Visit the most important squares of Cancun and enjoy the typical food and cultural gastronomy of the south of Mexico in the city's most famous restaurants and locals. Also, buy handicrafts, souvenirs and enjoy a tour through the streets of Cancun, the parks, and do not miss a visit to its shopping malls, where you can find national and international stores.

Scenic Tower in Cancun

The scenic tower of Cancun is one of those must-see places, from where you can see in detail both sides of Cancun, the Nichupte lagoon, and the Caribbean Sea. Also, during your tour to the scenic tower in 360°, you can take many photos and enjoy the most spectacular view at the height of 110 meters and capacity for up to 60 people.

Cancun Shopping malls

Cancun has an endless number of recreational activities that you can do within the city, and visiting the shopping malls is one that you can't miss. The most important shopping malls in Cancun are Plaza La Isla, Plaza Kukulcan, Puerto Cancun Marina Town Center, Malecon Las Americas, and Plazas Outlet.

The most popular tour among Cancun visitors is swimming with dolphins. Agencies such as Dolphinaris and Aquarium can be fundamental for this type of activity.

Tips for visiting the beaches

During your visit, do not forget to use sunscreen, and if you are traveling with children, remember that there should always be an adult responsible for them. If you plan to eat on the beach, whether you bring your food or buy it at one of the beach restaurants or hotels, always remember to take your garbage with you.
