Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Croco Cun Zoo (in Puerto Morelos), Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Zipline, &more) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). There's lots more to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, stop by Plaza Las Americas, pause for some serene contemplation at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado, and take in the pleasant sights at Av Kukulkan.
