If you love exploring, the caves in Playa Del Carmen offer plenty of mysterious underground spaces to discover.

Swim with the fishes. Scuba diving in Mexico is always a popular activity for visitors, with crystal clear waters with plenty of natural coral reefs to explore. Cancun National Marine Park even boasts an underwater museum (the tickets get a little soggy)!

For an extra kick, choose sites that are populated by sting rays and nurse sharks and feel that adrenaline start to pump.

Jump out of a plane at 10,000 feet, relax with a 40 second freefall then sail for eight minutes with a parachute. Taking in the spectacular views across the coastline, you’ll land on the beach with a sense of real sense of satisfaction and the need to do it again, and again.
