What are Cancun Tours?
Cancun tours are activities that you can do in Cancun. These range from snorkeling and scuba diving to exploring the Mayan ruins and visiting archaeological sites. They are very popular among travelers. Most tourists would usually plan their trips based on their interests and the length of time they have to use. Cancun tours are also a great way to pass time when you have a long international flight ahead.
Typically, this type of tour is done on foot with guides and mainly in Spanish, so it can be difficult for some people to figure out how much these tours will cost them. This article is going to tell you about the history of Cancun Tours since 1925 until today.
What is the best time of year for Cancun Tours?
A: You can go on a tour at any time of year, but during hurricane season some tourists might be deterred from touring because there is an increased chance of inclement weather. There have been over 50 hurricanes that have passed through the area since the year 1850.
The best time to visit Cancun depends on what you want to do there and how much you are willing to spend. In terms of weather, May-September is typically when the weather is more temperate in Cancun. The temperatures are higher during these months, ranging from 80 degrees F to 97 degrees F. If you visit during this time period, you can avoid the rainy season, which is June-August. From October-April, it can get quite chilly, with temperatures dropping as low as 62 degreesF.
What should I wear?
Visitors tend to wear comfortable clothes due to security regulations and many people also bring a light jacket since it may get windy or chilly at times. Because the airport is located far away from most of the tourist attractions, it is advisable to wear comfortable walking shoes. However, sandals are not recommended because you could come into contact with some odd mollusk off the beach. Also, don’t forget about your sunscreen; you will need it for protection against sunburns!
What should I bring?
Bring a camera and back up batteries in case there is no free charging stations available. You should also bring lots of sunscreen and insect repellent, especially if you plan on hiking or exploring the jungle area. Water bottles or bags are also handy since they allow you to carry water with you wherever you go.
Where are the ruins located?
The ruins are found in the downtown area, in a place called Chichén Itzá. They are about 14 miles away from the airport. You can take a taxi or go on a Cancun tour to see them. There is also a train that can take you there.
What are some of the must-see attractions?
Historians have told us that there were once more than 40,000 people living in Chichén Itzá in the year 950 AD during its heyday, which makes it one of the biggest ancient cities in America at its time. In its heyday, the Mayans built 48 temples. These were used as places of worship and important ceremonial platforms. The largest and most well-known is the Temple of Kukulkan (also called El Castillo), which is said to have been a highlight for visitors in its time.
How much does it cost?
Depending on what you want to do and how long your trip will take, you can spend anywhere from $20-$400 per day. Free tours are also available for people with certain medical conditions like pregnancy or diabetes and for children under 18 years old. Even though they don’t pay a fee, please note these tours are limited so you should contact the provider before your trip to secure a spot.
What is the best way to get around?
You can take a shuttle, taxi or rent a car or bike to explore the island. However, because of how hilly the terrain of Cancun is, most people do not recommend you rent a bike unless you are very athletic. You can also take the public bus but it is often full and does not have air conditioning. Trains are also available but the schedule is so limited that you’ll mostly be taking them for sightseeing purposes.
