My next goal for a trip involves visiting the Yucatan peninsula. I know that there are several resorts in the area, so I would like to plan a trip of 7 days to see the sites and relax. What are the top attractions or activities in Cancun?

You can go on several day trips in Cancun through tour operators that are affordable, ranging from around $35 to $85 per person. For example, you can arrange, in the Hotel Zone, to go snorkeling or jet skiing. You can also take a romantic dinner cruise on board an old sailing vessel. Another fun activity involves taking a kayak trip through the Nichupte Lagoon.
If you want to explore ancient ruins, you might think about taking a day trip to Chichen Itza. This complex, featuring Mayan ruins, displays a large step pyramid called El Castillo or Temple of Kukulcan. The city thrived from around 600 AD to the 1200s. You can see stone carvings in places, such as the Wall of Skulls and the Temple of the Warriors. Sound and light show highlights the ancient buildings’ geometric designs.
