The ones that live in Cancun notice that you can not take all the tours and expensive activities every time of the year. More than anything because of the price. But skipping this there are a lot of activities you can do; like assisting to one of the many beaches, go to restaurants, nightclubs or more. Here is a list that I specifically made to those that are interested in doing local activities in Cancun, if you want to live here or you are a curious traveler this article is for you:

Visit The Main Malls – Las Americas, Gran Plaza, Plaza Kukulkan, Plaza La Roca y Puerto Cancun Marina Town Center

The ones that live in Cancun like me, we love to visit Plaza Las Americas cause it has a tone of stores where you can get pretty clothes, souvenirs, musical instruments and a lot more. In my opinion I think that of all mentioned the best is Puerto Cancun cause it’s new, it recently opened at the end of 2017 and it has the best brands, it is next of a lagoon where you can see the sunset, buildings inside that big land development that is Puerto Cancun, it has a Movie Theater with normal and VIP rooms, playground for kids, ice cream shops and in Christmas they decorate it with a huge Christmas tree full of ornaments and colors. If you would like to visit any of this malls you can easily get a taxi from your hotel or home; I recommend you to take a private service with Discovery Mundo for 29 USD roundtrip clicking here.

Sign Up For A Gym

If you are a fit traveler looking to stay fit anywhere you go I recommend you the hotel zone of Cancun, it measures up to 23 KM of extension to travel in bike, roaller blading, by foot or however you like at any time of the day. Otherwise if you want something more private you can subscribe to a gym, the hotels count with their own gym or I would recommend the one in Plaza Las Americas named Energy Fitness.

Scuba Diving 

It doesn’t matter if you are a traveler or you’re going to live in Cancun. Scuba dive is an experience you can’t lose. It exist the shark season and whale sharks. You can click here to see scuba diving tours or contact us in our phone numbers on the main page.

Go To The Beach

If you are staying in a hotel, the private beaches they have are the best and are cleaner, some of them have their own volley ball courts and their own activities. For the locals the most visited beaches are: Playa Forum, Playa Marlin, Playa Tortugas and Playa Delfines.

Where To Eat

The typical mexican food is one of the reasons why tourists come to Mexico! And Cancun has many good places, I recommend you La Parrilla. The best tacos in Cancun on my opinion and many others are tacos árabes, you can also find 3 or 4 very good places in Ave. Tulum to try.

For a morning reunion of coffee, recommendatios are Marakame, Cafe Nader and Cafe Antoinette. The real drinkers of coffee go to Tradiciones Art Cafe. If you want to reserve a private transfer to this places from your hotel or home click here.

Bovinos is a Brazilian churrascaria considered to be one of the best in Cancun. For Japanese food inclusing sushi, locals and tourists love Ironi.


The most cool and fun for the locals are Han, Distrito Cavana and Antique. If you like to sing don’t fortget to go to Chantant in Puerto Cancun, is an excellent place to have fun.


The tours are incredible, there are thousand of tours you can take advantage of.
