Thomas More Travel has plenty of recommendations and tour desk staff will help you organize your day out. All area parks and tour operators have strict new health and safety standards.
A Riviera Maya Family Outing
Treat the family to an unforgettable day out at Xel-Ha or Xcaret. The turquoise inlet and lagoons at Xel-Ha are irresistible and you’ll spend hours in the clear water on the lookout for some of the 90 fish species that feed and breed in this huge natural aquarium.
There is always something new to see and do in Xcaret, from colorful native birds in the Aviary, iridescent butterflies and reef fish in the Aquarium. Go snorkeling, swim in the underground rivers and then unwind in a hammock under the trees. Admire ceramics, weavings and wood carvings from the world of Mexican folk art, replicas of Mayan treasures and exotic orchids. Watch a Mexican charro show or rodeo and sample delicious traditional cuisine. Stay on for the amazing evening show that celebrates Mexican history, music and dance.
A day of zip line thrills at Xplor or Selvatica adventure parks, exploring jungle trails or swimming or kayaking in four different sinkholes on the Xenotes tour might be just the tonic you need to release tension.
Cast off for a day of Caribbean sailing on board a catamaran or luxury yacht. Plan a snorkel or scuba excursion and explore the Mesoamerican Reef. The Cancun-Isla Mujeres National Park is open or you can visit reefs in Puerto Morelos, Cozumel or Akumal.
For a day combining nautical adventure and nature, book your place on an unforgettable eco trip to see the whale sharks that gather in the summer to feed on plankton in the waters to the east of Contoy and Isla Mujeres and north of Holbox.
