Things to do in Mexico


Several all-inclusive hotels in Cancun offer their guests the opportunity to play a few rounds of golf during their stay. Ask your travel consultant for more information.

Underwater Museum 

Located at the bottom of the National Maritime Park, the MUSA (Underwater Museum of Contemporary Art) allows you to admire more than 500 sculptures of human size, made by six different artists. This museum can be visited by diving or by boat with a glass bottom. The sculptures not only provide you with an incredible experience, but also provide growing space for corals and help shelter fish and other organisms, which are threatened with extinction due to pollution and the effects of mass tourism.


There are no cenotes in Cancun, but there are several nearby. The Yucatan Peninsula has more than 30,000 cenotes. With their crystal-clear water, irresistibly turquoise, blue or green, some are completely underground (cenote caves), others are partially open and others look more like small open-air lakes. You will be amazed!
