Full-Day Tour of the Hotel Zone with Beaches, Ruins & Market Visit

by Out&About Tours Duration 8h Free cancellation available No booking or credit card fees
per adult Price is $89

Break out of the resort bubble and spend the day seeing the area's best with a local guide. Take in beautiful vistas of turquoise Caribbean waters at El Mirador, haggle for souvenirs at Mercado 28, and visit ancient ruins at El Meco—with time to relax at the end on a stunning secluded beach.

After pickup, head to the popular Playa Delfines beach, known by locals as El Mirador, and take a photo with the colorful Cancun sign. Enjoy views of the picturesque shore dotted with beach huts and pelicans and parasailers and jet skiers frolicking in the aqua waters.

Next, test your bargaining skills at Mercado 28, a vibrant open-air market. Find great deals on souvenirs such as hand-painted pottery and silver jewelry. This is also an ideal place to find delicious regional cuisine—from fresh seafood to traditional tacos.

Head north to the El Meco ruins and climb the towering El Castillo step pyramid, whose height offers stunning views of the surroundings. Learn the history of this ancient Mayan city built around 300 AD. A key port and commercial district, it was abandoned and then resettled in the late 10th century, with what remains built between the 13th and 16th.

End the day at the enchanting Isla Blanca beach, a hidden peninsula with the Chacmuchuch Lagoon on one side and Caribbean Sea on the other. Take a dip in the sea, grab a cold drink at the beach club, and luxuriate on warm, white sands as kiteboarders propel across the water and herons search for dinner on the shore.

It was an all day excursion. Even though it did say drink only, the guide made ham and cheese sandwichs. She took us to an affordable market where souvenirs Were at a decent price.

staying in Market for more than two and a half hours. it is too long. The female guide delayed 15 minutes for leaving that market. She did not care tourist time and she can not arrange time carefully.
