Mexico is one of the 10 most attractive tourist destinations in the world thanks to its cultural, historical, and architectural wealth. However, what makes your stay unforgettable is the warmth of its people and its paradisiacal beaches, which offer you an ideal place to have all kinds of adventures.
Whether you decide to immerse yourself in the intense blue of the Pacific bays or relax by the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, we present you the most attractive destinations without having to travel long distances from Cancun and Cabo San Lucas.
Cancún, Quintana Roo
Besides being a world heritage site, it is one of the 7 wonders of the world and one of the most extraordinary Mayan ruin complexes to visit.
Its Maya name means “mouth of the well of the Itzá” in reference to the cenote that was considered sacred and an essential source of fresh water for the inhabitants.
This natural cave also is known as the “Crystal Museum” has a network of internal rivers and vaults that are the ideal place to have an adventure and appreciate nature.
Just 25 minutes from Cancun, it is one of the most famous natural parks for its spectacular views and more than 20 activities to do. Here you will be able to relax, adventure in the kayaks, admire the marine biodiversity with a snorkel, ride a bicycle, or admire the greatness of the Caribbean Sea from its 3 zip lines.
Reaching any of these destinations is very easy. However, the real problem is leaving the airport to get to downtown Cancun and there you can move easily.
For this, you have two options:
- Use public transportation such as cabs or buses. Buses are an inexpensive way to get around, but they have the disadvantage that they only go from the airport to the stations and if your hotel is far away, you will have to take other transportation to get there. On the other hand, cabs offer personalized mobility but with very high costs that are not the fairest for the type of service they offer.
- Private transportation offers one of the best options to get from one place to another since they allow you to book even before you arrive at the airport and your transportation will be waiting for you upon your arrival. there are many transportation companies, but I recommend using the official Cancun airport transportation to avoid scams.
In addition, with only $30 USD you can transfer up to 8 people in high-quality vehicles.
Los Cabos, Baja California
If your adventure has taken you to the beautiful desert landscapes and world-famous beaches of Cabo San Lucas, these are some of the places you should visit:
El Medano Beach
Located a few meters from the hotel zone, this beach offers one of the most sought-after views thanks to its famous arch, its boats, and the seasonal whale show.
Cabo Pulmo National Park
This location, located in the Sea of Cortez, is ideal for people who practice sport fishing. It also contains the only hard reef in the Baja California peninsula and the only living reef in North America.
Magical Town Todos los Santos
Thanks to its subway filtrations that descend from the Sierra La Laguna, they give rise to an oasis in the middle of the desert area of the peninsula. This town is characterized by its colonial-style architecture and its artistic life that you can appreciate through its galleries and festivals.
Transportation in Baja California is expensive. As in Cancun, you can choose to use public transportation. However, the advantage that private Cabo Airport Shuttle offers is the possibility of planning an itinerary and moving around the city as you wish. In addition, you will be able to have an idea of the budget that will be destined to transport during your stay.
Finally, prepare your palate because Mexican cuisine is one of the most varied and sophisticated in the world. Dare to try its different flavors and colors to immerse yourself in the best vacation of your life.
