Full description
Following a morning hotel pickup in Cancun, head out to El Meco, a Maya archaeological site located just outside of Cancun that most visitors often miss. Learn about its history during this 45-minute tour before enjoying some free time to admire the ruins on your own. Back in your air-conditioned vehicle, continue to "Celso" at Market 28 to enjoy an authentic marketplace experience. Interact with local vendors, offering handcrafted artifacts at flea-market-type shops, and pick up real silver from Taxco at the best prices.

Follow your guide to discover Cancun’s top landmarks, including those in the downtown district and hotel zone. Stroll along Boulevard Kukulcan for views of Cancun hotels, clubs and marinas. In Plaza Kukulkan, visit the Tequila Museum, which houses 700 types of Mexican tequilas. Learn about the various brands and enjoy a tasting here. Score duty-free prices on brand names at designer stores.

Later, cap off the day with jaw-dropping views of the Cancun bay and coastline at El Mirador in Playa Delfines (this stop is subject to weather conditions). Take a commemorative shot next to the famous and colorful Cancun sign that has become a must for visitors. Get dropped off back to your hotel in the late afternoon, with unique purchases and memorable photos in hand.
