This is the McDonald's of water sports, so don't expect a lot of individual attention. This choice is useful for large groups since it offers large, fast boats that can handle up to 150 people at a time. It does have the cheapest rates and offers quick resort dive courses that can get you diving within a few days. Don't attempt anything more than a novice dive after the resort course, though. The curriculum isn't thorough enough for more advances dives. The snorkeling trips are good despite the large groups. read more about Aquaworld Cancun

For two days, each year, it is believed that the dead return to Earth and join the living for feasts and celebrations. On November 1st, Dia de Los Inocentes ("Day of the Innocents") is held, in which deceased children and infants are honored.  This day is also referred to as Dia de Los Angelitos ("Day of the Little Angels").  On November 2nd, deceased adults are honored. People build altars in their home where they place photos of their dead relatives, along with candies & other treats, as well as the favorite foods and beverages of of the deceased.  Throughout Cancun you can see the loving preparation for this "visit" in street parades, decorated cemeteries and homemade shrines, honoring those who have died. Day of the Dead celebrations are much grander in other parts of Mexico.  In Cancun, events are mainly held in the home, or in cemeteries. Enjoy the opportunity to view holiday traditions that date back thousands of years. Admission is free, and events are largely unscheduled.  Xcaret eco-park will holds it's 5th annual Festival of Life & Death from October 30th-November 2nd.

By day, Senor Frog's is a restaurant but, at night, it becomes one of Cancun's hottest nightclubs.  Boy, do they ever know how to throw a party.  Dancing on the bar is encouraged, drinks are served in yard glasses, and a Conga line could start up at any time.  This spot is very popular with Americans and everyone always looks like they are having the time of their life!

There are contests throughout the night and, several nights a week, there is a Reggae band that performs a few sets.  There is a water slide that starts inside the restaurant and dumps you out into the lagoon, just off the back patio.  Losers of the contest are often punished by being sent down the water slide.  It's all in good fun though.  Contest winners, on the other hand, are normally rewarded with tequila shots or beer. 

The menu offers something for everyone with dishes such as pizza, pasta, steak, chicken, as well as popular Mexican dishes like fajitas and enchiladas.  They even have things like spaghetti & meatballs, cheeseburgers, and fried cheese sticks, that might be appealing to kids.

El Meco Ruins

El Meco Ruins

  • Pto. Juarez-Punta Sam road, Km. 2.7
  • Cancun, 77500

El Meco is a small archeological site of Mayan ruins, dating back to the 10th or 11th century.  Some researchers believe that this settlement was inhabited as early as the 3rd century, but was then abandoned before being resettled in the 10th or 11th century.  The new inhabits were probably Mayans from other sites from the interior of the Yucatan Peninsula, since El Meco was believed to be governed by the rulers of Chichen Itza.   

El Meco was a major commercial port city for the Mayas.  Due to it's close proximity to Isla Mujeres, it was a departure point for Mayans sailing to the island, and was also an important reference point for coastal navigation.  It's location also helped it gain strength as a religious center, associated with rituals held on Isla Mujeres.

The site has only 14 structures, and the main temple is in good condition.  From the top of El Castillo, the pyramid at El Meco, there is a great view of Cancun's Chacmochuc Lagoon, however guests are no longer allowed to climb on the ruins.  El Meco has only been open to the public for a short time.  For that reason, there are no organized tours, at this time.  To get here, you will have to rent a car or hire a taxi for a few hours.
