OFF SITE ACTIVITIES
Costa Maya is located on the south of the Quintana Roo state, and goes from Punta Herrero to Xcalak. In this area are located around 30 ecological hotels where you can enjoy the beautiful beaches, the ruins near this zone, and many acuatic activities as snorkel, diving and fishing.
“Cancún, a Mexican city on the Yucatán Peninsula bordering the Caribbean Sea, is known for its beaches, numerous resorts and nightlife. It’s composed of 2 distinct areas: the more traditional downtown area, El Centro, and Zona Hotelera, a long, beachfront strip of high-rise hotels, nightclubs, shops and restaurants. Cancun is also a famed destination for students during universities’ spring break period.
The main commercial street of the Zona Hotelera, Boulevard Kukulcán, is also the site of El Rey, ancient Mayan ruins, and the sleek Museo Maya de Cancún, housing Mayan artifacts. Besides swimming, popular water activities include snorkeling and diving along the Mesoamerican Reef, or in one of the region’s many sinkholes, known as cenotes. Sailing and jet-skiing are common in the calm Nichupté Lagoon. Making frequent voyages offshore are deep-sea fishing charters and ferries to nearby Isla Mujeres island, home of Garrafón Natural Reef Park. South of the city are Xcaret, a Mayan-themed eco park, and the Xel-Há water park.” Cancun Travel Guide
Some popular tours and sightseeing highlights include :
To join his swashbuckling crew upon the Jolly Roger? Are you ready to sail the Caribbean and bear witness to rivaled pirates battling for their dignity? The clashing of swords, the explosion of canons and a constant flow of drinks and merriment will accompany you in this spectacular show.
Explore the incredible galleon that was modeled on Columbus’ Santa Maria (or Marigalante as known by her sailors) that joined him on his first voyage to the Americas. Enjoy the fun and music that await as pirates swing from ropes and act out their dark and bitter feuds. Avoid walking the plank by taking advantage of the free bar included in your ticket; little pirates can save themselves from washing the deck with a toothbrush by eating all their dessert!
Museo Maya de Cancún
The museum is housed in a modern white building with large windows which was designed by Mexican architect Alberto García Lascurain. Three white columns made of delicate leafy patterns representing the vegetation of the area sit in a fountain at the entrance to the museum. These were designed by Jan Hendrix, a Dutch-born artist who has lived and worked in Mexico for over thirty years. On the ground floor of the museum, you’ll find the ticket booth and bag check area; you’ll be asked to leave any large bags as they’re not permitted inside the museum. There is a cafeteria on this level also, and gardens with paths leading to the archaeological site.
The exhibition halls are located on the second floor, accessed via elevator (the museum is wheelchair accessible). They are elevated to 30 feet above sea level to protect the collection in case of flooding. There are three exhibition halls, two of which are permanent and one which is used for temporary exhibits.
The museum’s complete collection contains over 3500 pieces, but only about a tenth of the collection is currently on display (some 320 pieces).
The first hall is dedicated to the archaeology of the State of Quintana Roo, and presented in roughly chronological order. One of the most notable aspects of the collection is found here, the skeletal remains of La Mujer de las Palmas (“The Woman of the Palms”) and a replica of the context in which they were discovered.
She is believed to have lived in the area some 10,000 to 12,000 years ago and her remains were found in the Las Palmas cenote near Tulum in 2002.
The second hall is dedicated to Mayan culture as a whole and includes pieces found in other areas of Mexico: besides Quintana Roo, the Maya World encompassed the present-day Mexican states of Chiapas, Tabasco, Campeche and Yucatan, and stretched into Guatemala, Belize, El Salvador and part of Honduras. A replica of Monument 6 from Tortuguero site in Tabasco is particularly interesting, as this stela was used as evidence for some of the theories of what would happen at the end of the Maya long count calendar in 2012.
The third hall houses temporary exhibits and rotates often.
San Miguelito Archaeological Site:
After visiting the museum, go back down to the ground level and follow the path that leads to the San Miguelito archaeological site. This is considered a small site, but it’s certainly a pleasant surprise to find this green oasis of 1000 square meters of jungle with meandering paths leading to a variety of ancient structures in the middle of Cancun’s hotel zone. The Maya inhabited the site over 800 years ago until the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors (roughly 1250 to 1550 A.C.).
The site contains some 40 structures, of which five are open to the public, the largest being a pyramid of 26 feet in height. San Miguelito’s ideal location, on the coast of the Caribbean Sea and near the Nichupté Lagoon, facilitated its residents’ involvement in the ancient Mayan system of trade, and allowed them to make use of routes around the lagoons, reefs and mangroves.
