Coba, Tulum, Cenotes, Xplore by Xcaret, and of course, Chichen Itza.

What is the best tip for travelling with kids to Cancun?

Bring snacks. Plan on grab and go breakfasts if you do tours, since most leave between 7-7:30am. Bring reef friendly sunscreen. Most cenotes require life vests and provide them, but water shoes are a good idea too.

What is your best overall travel tip for Cancun?

If you REALLY REALLY want and are desperate for a deal on an excursion, agree to a sales presentation you are bound to be invited to. Money is valuable but time is precious... don’t let yourself feel trapped and don’t be afraid to say no. Always ask the conversion/exchange rate wherever you are- sometimes it’s cheaper to pay in USD and sometimes it’s cheaper to pay in pesos.

Stacia's Travel Tips for Cancun

What is your best overall travel tip for Cancun?

Well - the Jazz Festival was awesome! Other than that - my TOP tip is to remember that many of the resorts are actually not in Cancun - so plan to be in a taxi for an hour to get to the city!

What is your best overall travel tip for Cancun?

We visited pirates cove not too far from hour shoot location. Their food and hospitality were fenomenal. This restaurant was across from the Mayan Museum in Cancun which is also a must. The greenery and small Mayan ruin are still remarkable.

Anna's Travel Tips for Cancun

What is your best overall travel tip for Cancun?

While in Cancun it can be easy to get caught up in the nightlife but I think the "must do's" snorkeling in the majestic coral reefs, seeing the history of the Mayan ruins, and absorbing the culture of Isla Mujeres.
