Dive into local beach life

Adventure Snorkeling in Akumal Bay
In the Maya language, Akumal means place of the turtle. That is because many sea turtles are full-time residents of Akumal Bay. That makes seeing turtles out in the bay very possible when you're with an experienced guide like me. I'll meet you near the beach and provide you with life jacket and snorkeling gear. I will then take you through an exclusive entrance onto the beach of Akumal Bay. At the beach, I'll give you instructions on how to use your equipment, where we'll be swimming, what marine life you can expect to see, how to be mindful and respectful of the marine life and environment, and most importantly, how to be safe in the water. Once we enter the water, we'll take a brief pause to make sure everyone is comfortable in the water and with their equipment. Then, I'll guide you around the circuit and show you all of the marine life that Akumal Bay has to offer. You can see sea turtles, stingrays, barracudas, reef squid, coral reef and many other tropical fish. After we've had fun in the water, we'll head back to shore and I'll take your equipment. If you need any help with the rest of your day, I'll be there to assist you. Other things to note You do not need to be a strong swimmer to participate in my tour but you should at least be comfortable in the water. The bay can be closed on occasion due to adverse weather conditions.

Your guide to Cancún

Where do locals hang out in Cancun?

Parque Urbano Kabah

This isn’t your typical city park. Here spider monkeys swing through the trees as iguanas get their daily sunning in — all while joggers enjoy a 1-mile loop and children run around a playground. Inside the park, you get to experience real Cancun, where locals on their day off enjoy the trails, a small zoo, the tiny Casa Mayan Museum, and a reprieve from the beach resorts and city center. On Sundays, it’s common to find families enjoying late afternoons and evenings in parks and plazas, and this is one of the best spots to experience it firsthand.

Museo Maya de Cancún

Locals enjoy beating the heat at Museo Maya de Cancún in the afternoon. While the architecture is modern, the history that lives within Museo Maya de Cancún y Zona Arqueológica de San Miguelito is ancient. It houses 3,500 artifacts (featuring roughly 400 on display at time) that showcase the ritual and domestic objects of the ancient Mayans who lived along Quintana Roo. Don’t miss the 12,000-year-old skeleton of La Mujer de las Palmas (The Woman of the Palms), a woman discovered in a cenote near Tulum. Afterward, head out to the quiet jungle-clad San Miguelito Ruins to imagine what Cancun looked like thousands of years ago.

Avenida Yaxchilan

This is the real-deal nightlife scene in Cancun. Situated in the heart of Cancun Centro, here is where you can find live mariachi music, hit the bars, and enjoy tacos, sopas, empanadas, and more of the best food in the city.


What do locals eat in Cancun?

There’s nothing like a home-cooked meal, especially in a place like Cancun. Families love to get together for tamales, sopa de lima, and other comfort foods; consider a cooking class to learn how to make some of these specialities. Tacos are a big deal here, and one of the best ways to eat like a local in Cancun is to join one on a walking tour to some of the best downtown taco spots.

For those who want more, head outside of Cancun on day trips to ancient ruins including Tulum, Chichen Itza, and Isla Mujeres and stop for lunch to try traditional Yucatan comfort food such as cochinita pibil (typically shredded pork wrapped in banana leaves) and huevos motuleños, as well as some of the region’s freshest seafood.


What are the best day trips from Cancun?

Culture and wonder in Tulum and Coba

Tulum, once a walled city that served as the port of Coba, is known as one of the best preserved Mayan cities along coastal Yucatán. The Temple of the Frescoes is one of the major draws to Tulum, where you can see remains of once colorful murals and impressive faces and figures etched into the exterior of the two-story building. Most visitors descend a long, narrow staircase at the end of the guided portion to dip their toes in the warm waters of the Caribbean.

Experience Chichen Itza

Head into the jungle to visit Chichen Itza, a UNESCO World Heritage site known for the 79-foot (24-meter) step Kukulcan Pyramid—more commonly known as El Castillo—as well as the Temple of Warriors and the Great Ball Court. Chichen Itza is most famous for myths about figures such as Kukulkan, a feathered serpent god, who is believed to make an appearance as a long, slithering shadow cast upon El Castillo’s north-facing steps at sunrise and sunset during spring and fall equinoxes.

Scuba diving in Cozumel

Home to the National Reef Marine Park, Cozumel is an underwater museum. Take scuba tours to explore the colorful reefs. Within the park is Chankanaab which translates to “little sea” and it’s an otherworldly exploration into the region’s protected flora and fauna.

Relaxing in Isla Mujeres

Boat and catamaran tours to Isla Mujeres operate daily (always check schedules). On the island, stay on shore for local art, dining, and shopping. For those who want to get in the water, go snorkeling through coral reefs, or scuba diving at Museo Subacuático de Arte. It’s one of the largest underwater museums in the world, with more than 500 permanent life-size sculptures.
