Water Sports, Cancún
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.
Directions: Lots of operators dotted around. Shop around and find the best deal for you. But my advice is ignore the reps in hotels - you will find a better deal and meet some characters whilst you're at it!Related to:
Instead of using all your time on the beautiful beaches, take a boat trip on the inland lagoon. There are special boats that give you a tour around the lagoon, but you can also use a canoe if you like paddling for a few hours. There are three lagoons, and the biggest one is the “Nichupté Lagoon”, used by those hotels that having two or more hotels, but then on both sides of Cancun. By using a speedboat, they bring their visitors from one hotel to the other. Then you have the “Bojórquez Lagoon” and the “Río Inglés Lagoon, but in fact all those three lagoons flowing in each other that you do not know in what lagoon you really are. See for more pictures and info in my “Lagoon travelogue” please.
I have been scuba diving in a couple of different places and this was a seven on a scale of 10. The Scuba Cancun people were very professional and took care of one of our newbies. The prices were reasonable for a resort area location.
Saw a lot of sea turtles, but I do not know if that is common in Cancun.

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.
Address: Any beaches between Cancun & Playa del Carmen
Directions: There is many miles of beach and most resorts have watersport items.
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...
