Here are 15 must-sees and must-dos in Cancun crowdsourced from you, the agents on VAX.
1.I always recommend the eco park Xel-Ha. I had such an amazing time there and you can learn so much without feeling like you are taking a toll on the natural beauty of the land.

2.Use the transportation included in the package. Don't worry about renting a car as the resort can set up excursions that are worry-free.

3.Go swimming in a cenote. It’s a very cool experience and one unique to the Yucatan Peninsula.

11.Coco Bongo's is a fun and hip night club that is fun and entertaining, even for the more mature crowd.

12.Bonanza Ranch. This is a great family owned property where they take in animals that have been mistreated or left alone. They give you a tour of the ranch and offer horseback riding trips through the jungle that end at a cenote you can swim in. The staff at this property is excellent and it is a wonderful excursion that I highly recommend.

13.For a quieter vacation, especially for families, you can't go wrong with a one hour transfer to a resort in Rivera Maya.
Colleen F., Cruise Planners in Virginia
14.Bring lots of U.S. one and five dollar bills for easy tipping and bargain shopping. It makes it really easy to bargain in straw markets and with street vendors when you have plenty of the proper amount of money to exchange.
Elisa J., Delight Travel in Tennessee
15.The tequila tasting at El Dorado Seaside Suites by Karisma is super fun! I learned how to properly taste tequila as well as how it’s made and its origins.
