Tropical forests and coastal jungle surround the resort city of Cancun and cover much of the state of Quintana Roo on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. Here are some tour ideas, from horseback riding and ATV adventures to boat rides through mangroves.
Zipping hundreds of feet above the lush jungle canopy is a great way for adventure junkies to get their adrenaline fix. Fly above panoramic vistas of the Mayan jungle below as you zip from platform to platform on a jungle zipline tour.
Off-Road and ATV Rides
Drive your own off-road vehicle through the lush jungle on an ATV tour. Motor past native coconut palms and mangrove trees as you rumble through the jungle. After a ride through the sweltering jungle, cool off by diving into the ocean at a pristine white sand beach before heading back through the jungle.
On a waverunner or a two-person speedboat, race across Nichupte Lagoon, through the Cancun jungle, and past green mangrove channels toward a coral reef. Cool off as the wind whips through your hair while you speed up the Nizuk River toward the Mexican Caribbean.
Escape the hotel zone and see the exotic surroundings of Cancun by horseback on a relaxing tour through the lush jungle forests. At a mellow pace, enjoy picturesque vistas of the Riviera Maya, exotic scenery, and native wildlife life as you set out on a trail through the jungle surroundings.
