Best Excursions in Mexico
Did you know that there’s so much more to holidays to Mexico than relaxing beach breaks? Whether you’re an adrenaline junkie looking for adventure, or a more sophisticated traveller looking to immerse yourself in another culture, there really is something to suit everyone.
To give you an idea of what’s on offer, here we’ll reveal some of the best excursions you can enjoy in Mexico.
Best excursions for adventure seekers
If you’re a thrill seeker, Mexico has a huge choice of adventure-based excursions you can immerse yourself into. By far one of the best adventure excursions on offer is the Off-Road Adventure.
Taking you on a tour through the rocky Sierra Madre mountains and the lush green jungle in a 4×4, this unique excursion allows you to experience Mexico off the beaten path. You’ll get to stop off at a traditional Mexican village in the heart of the jungle, before hiking over to the beach to enjoy a spot of lunch.
If this sounds a little too relaxed for your liking, we also offer an adrenaline pumping Extreme Adventure excursion. You’ll get to feel like you’re flying at a huge zip-line course featuring the infamous Superman line. Then, experience the thrill of driving an off-road UTV before trekking through the lush jungle and ending with a water-slide cool-off. If it’s true adventure you’re looking for, this excursion is definitely for you!
Best excursions for party lovers
Do you live for the night where you can live it up in stylish bars and dance the night away in local clubs? If so, you’ll want to head to Playa del Carmen. Here, you’ll get to partake in the Coco Bongo excursion, giving you a VIP ticket into this exclusive hotspot. Known for its unique blend of Las Vegas and fiesta style entertainment, the club is considered one of the best in Mexico. As a gold ticket holder, you’ll get exclusive access to a table with your own waiter.
If that sounds a little too lively, why not sign up to Rhythm of the Night? After taking a cruise over to Las Caletas, you’ll enjoy a delicious candlelit dinner before watching a night of performances from dancers and acrobats, each unfolding a story from the ancient civilisations of Mexico.
Best excursions for the cultured traveller
Looking for a more cultural trip? You won’t want to miss the unique Mayan ruins excursion, Chichen Itza. The UNESCO World Heritage site looks just like the Egyptian pyramids. The one-day tour gives you the opportunity to learn more about Mayan legends, history and culture. You’ll also get to explore the stunning on-site attractions such as the Temple of Warriors and Kukulkan Pyramid.
Alternatively, you could opt for our Tulum Eco Beach excursion. This still gives you a few hours to enjoy exploring the ruins, but it also gives you the opportunity to swim in a natural underground pool know as a cenote. You’ll find thousands of these unique pools throughout the country and they each look absolutely beautiful.
Best excursions for water lovers
If you love water sports and activities, you’ll definitely want to head to the Riviera Maya. The area is best known for its huge range of water activities on offer and there’s lots of excursions available to help you make the most of your aqua adventures.
Why not book the Underwater World excursion, perfect for families, couples or groups? Taking you on a half-day tour, you’ll get to explore some of the most beautiful underground pools Mexico has to offer. You’ll then head to the pristine white beaches to snorkel and swim along the breath-taking Caribbean reef. Stay at the luxurious Royalton Riviera Cancun and spend your days swimming, snorkelling and paddle boarding in the nearby waters.
