Most of the year Cancun weather is sunny with high temperatures, specially from June to September. That is ideal for enjoying the stunning beaches and aquatic parks of Cancun. But also there are many other things to do in Cancun for summer.

Cancun brings together gorgeous natural settings with first class accommodations and the archaeological Mayan sites that rich our culture. Here I’ll show you a list of things to do in Cancun this Summer 2017:

Swim with Whale sharks 

This stunning animals come to Cancun on the first days of June. There is a specific area where you can swim with this creatures and you have to take a boat to get there. You can also find some stingrays and turtles swimming around. The Whaleshark tour takes you to this area where you will enjoy the snorkeling with this animals for 3 hours and visit Isla Mujeres for lunch.Visit the stunning beaches

Cancun has the most beautiful beaches in the Caribbean and Mexico. The turquoise colors are amazing and you can enjoy many activities at the beach: volleyball, kayak, snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surf and more. Best beaches are: Forum, Delfines and Marlin. Also if you head to Isla Mujeres or Cozumel by ferry, you will be enchanted.Chichen Itza 

It’s important to visit Chichen Itza if you come to Cancun for the first time. One of the world wonders that is full of misteries and culture. The Mayans used to predict the natural events with their intelligence and creations at the archaeological site. Every Tuesday, Chichen Itza features a 3D mapping projection, dramatic lighting and amazing images! Check out Chichen Itza Light & Sound.Visit Tulum

Tulum is a beautiful town 2 hours from Cancun. It has beautiful beaches and the only archaeological mayan site in the seashore. Tulum Beach is the perfect option for those wishing to visit the famous ruins of the ancient Mayan culture and enjoy one of the most beautiful beaches of the Mexican Caribbean at the hotel zone of Tulum, to relax and swim in the turquoise blue Caribbean ocean. Enjoy the nightlife

In the km 10 of the hotel zone of Cancun is the nighlife zone, full of great bars and discos. My recommendation is to visit Mandala Beach at the day or Coco bongo. Coco Bongo is probably the most popular nightclub for Cancun tourists to visit and has been established for many years. The shows are amazing and have to be seen at least once. There is a special package for Coco Bongo hereVisit Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres is a beautiful island of nature, resort hotels, snorkeling and scuba diving coral reefs. Is located 30 min from Cancun. You must get there by a boat or ferry. You can get your ROUNDTRIP ferry tickets here
