Incredible Sights & Activities in the Yucatán Peninsula
1. Rio Secreto
There really is no other word to describe Rio Secreto other than “magical.” Only accessible by tour, this underground river with crystal clear waters is surrounded on all sides by crystals and stalactite formations. Hiking and swimming the Rio Secreto really is an unforgettable experience!
2. Tulum Ruins
Just south of Cancun lies the ancient Mayan city of Tulum, where the archaeological site of the walled ruins sits towering above the ocean. These well-preserved ruins with a magnificent backdrop can be toured in as little as an hour or two, but you can easily spend a full day exploring the ruins, swimming in the ocean or walking up Tulum Beach Road. There is an entrance fee as well as a parking fee and an additional cost to bring in cameras/video recorders, so come prepared with pesos on hand.
