    Breathing Observation Bubble Minisub
    A step between aqua trek (where you walk along the bottom) and scuba diving. No certification necessary. Includes a free video...though our video only lasted about 3 min. Recommend using a wet suit for comfort even if the water isn't that cold.

  • There is no lack of things to do in Cancun!!

    by margep Written Aug 29, 2008

    There's a lot to do in Cancun. There are the water sports- from scuba to snorkeling, to fishing, waterskiing, swimming, boogie boarding, jetskiing, parasailing, etc. There are the Mayan ruins, the water park, Xcaret, swimming with dolphins, shopping, dining, and a lot more. There are many nightclubs like Cocobongos, Sr. Frogs, Carlos and Charlies, etc. You won't have a lack of things to do there, especially if you're outgoing! Lots of people to party with in your age group, don't worry! Water is warm, blue, really clear & pretty. You can swim & snorkel & boogie board off the beaches there, & in Cozumel & Isla Mujeres. Many ruins around to visit, in different areas. Shopping is along main street in Cancun, & dining.There is a good write up of activities at www.stayincancun.com/thingstodo.asp

    The interesting ruins of Chitzenitza, we loved it! A picture of the hotel zone, from a plane Snorkeling or scuba diving - we saw lots of fish!! One of the beaches in the hotel zone, pretty! Beautiful sunsets in Cancun!

  • Deep sea fishing

    by lizlynch Written Feb 25, 2003

    It was our last day in Cancun and we wanted to catch some fish. Went out on a six hour trip and it was awesome! Caught loads of Barracuda and I landed a huge male Mahi-Mahi or Dorado. I thought my arms would break.
    On the journey back to shore, the captain allowed us to sunbathe on the bow of the boat with the sun beating and the Caribbean sea cooling us down. It was truly magical.

    Quintana Roo

    by gabriellefox Updated Feb 28, 2005

    The coast of Quintana Roo is bathed by shallow, crystal-clear, green-blue waters, lined by beaches of fine white sand, punctuated by numerous coves, bays and islands, with a backdrop of lush tropical vegetation. It is here that Tulum stands, on a cliff, overlooking the Caribbean. The most important Maya archaeological site on the coast, it is 127 kilometers south of Cancun.
    Xel-Ha, is a breathtaking combination of jungle flora and fauna, freshwater (sinkholes), caves, and ocean splendor is guaranteed to please all five of your senses. Wander the jungle trails, snorkel to your hearts content, or take a nap on Hammock Island.

    From scuba to snorkeling and sunning to sunfishing, the waters around the Yucatan Peninsula offer a wide variety of options and all of them are good and fun.

    The Travel Slut's room has this view The beaches & blue water are inviting My guide does the hard work I can't decide what  like I better-beach or water

    Deep Sea Fishing!

    by Chica_Blanca Written Apr 25, 2003

    My anniversary gift to my husband was a 4-hour deep sea fishing trip. He loved it! Choppy water and all! He and the other folks caught yellow fin tuna, blue fin tuna, mahi mahi and a barrcuda...
