Mexico Things to Do

  • Chichen Itza

    Cancún Things to Do

    It´s a couple of hours by car from Cancun, but I think that it's impossible to skip its visit. Chichen-Itza it's popular worldwide, and it would be silly not to visit it, being so close. So, have swim in the early morning (great!) visit Chichen-Itza, and have another late swim to receive the night (even better)

    Tulum Things to Do

    Does not take long to explore and easily combined with other excursions in the area. I was in and out within an hour. I saw everything but I am not one to stand and gaze so I am sure that is why it was a short stay for me. This visit, (Oct.2013) the beach was roped off and no was one allowed to get close. Views from the ridge are gorgeous...

    Acapulco Things to Do

    We were fortunate enough to get the perfect seat for the show. The cliff Divers are neat to watch and the show was not too long. If you are in Acapulco and have a chance to see them I would not pass it up in a second. After the show the divers will be standing on the ramp that takes you to the street signing autographs and taking pictures. Do not...

  • Cola de Caballo

    Monterrey Things to Do

    Cascada Cola de Caballo literally means "Horse Tail Falls", describing how it looks from a distance. It's a pretty waterfall, and it's wonderful to see that natural elements are preserved in Mexico. The 30-peso entrance fee, however, is the first tipoff that this isn't going to be a Canadian-style adventure so much as a US-style marketing...

    Puerto Vallarta Things to Do

    Old Town is definitely the place to be. You will feel like you are really in Mexico, unlike some the places with walled off beach areas to the north. Why go to Mexico if you don't want to experience anything Mexican? Our favorite places to hang out on the beach are Epoca and Cuates y Cuetas. At Epoca, you can sit under a palapa in the sand and have...

    It sounds cheesy but it was a really great experience. If you want to have a "real" drink on the boatride there just ask for it. They have some snacks on the boat to tide you over. Don't buy the bugspray at the Marina, bring your own or don't worry about it. Be hungry for dinner, the food is really great. It is a very romantic trip. After the...

    There are tons of opportunities to do parasailing on the beach - we paid about $30 USD each for it, in retrospect I think we could have haggled the price down even more if we'd tried harder.
