If you’re planning a day trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico, here are ten things you might want to do during your short adventure.

The Yucatan Peninsula is situated along the easternmost region of Mexico, separating the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico. Its Northeastern coastline lies approximately 150 miles from Cuba’s most western point, and the northwest coast is around 600 miles from New Orleans in America.

It covers somewhere in the region of 76,300 square miles (197,600 sq. km). The coastline runs for around 600 miles, and the main breadth of the peninsula, which includes the Mexican states of Yucatan, Quintana Roo, and Campeche, and large parts of Guatemala and Belize, is about 200 miles.

If you’re planning a trip to the Yucatan Peninsula, you’ve come to the right place. Here are ten great suggestions for things you may want to see and do during your stay (plus a few other ideas on top of these main suggestions).

Are there many things to see and do in the Yucatan?

Yes. There are many amazing things to see and do in the Yucatan Peninsula, but instead of listing them all, here are just ten things you should try and squeeze in during your stay.

There’s something for everyone, so no matter whether you are a thrill-seeking adventurer or a more laid-back kind of traveller, and whether you are a singleton, a married couple, a small or large family, or part of a much bigger group of people, you can easily find something to do.

The most popular cities in the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico are Cancun, Playa del Carmen, Merida, and Tulum. Some of the most popular things to see and do are the following:

  • Bus tours
  • Day trips
  • Guided tours
  • 4WD tours
  • Bodies of water
  • Snorkelling
  • Geological formations
  • Archaeology tours
  • Full-day tours
  • Half-day tours
  • Ancient ruins
  • Self-guided tours
  • Beaches
  • Nature and wildlife tours
  • Island-hopping
  • Land-based casinos
  • Visit the Fashion Street Mall

In the Fashion Street Mall, try to get a look inside the entertainment venue and play a round of Mexican roulette. This is basically the original game but with 3 zeros. Yes, we know what you’re thinking: 3 zeros?!

And we can’t say we disagree. Players are able to play different variations of roulette that have much simpler formats — ones that have 1 zero over 3!

Top 10 things to see and do in Mexico, and other great suggestions

Without further ado, some of the things you might like to take in during your next visit to the Yucatan Peninsula are an all-inclusive tour to Chichen Itza, to see the mesmerizing and enchanting cenotes and the city of Valladolid.

One of the main reasons why people visit this region is to check out the Ancient Mayan pyramids and archaeological ruins. Some of you may also like to go on a jungle adventure with ziplines, more cenotes, and tequila tasting.

There are so many beautiful locations for snorkelling, boat trips, and fishing trips, and some of the other top reasons to visit the Yucatan Peninsula are the Xcaret Park (theme park/amusement park), the Tulum Archaeological site, the Rio Secreto, and the Beach Club in Cozumel.

Other things to add to your list of things to see and do are the Zona Arqueologica de Coba, Isla Pasion, Playa Norte, Lake Bacalar, Akumal Beach, Playa Delfines, and Aktun Chen.

If that’s not enough to keep you going, and you still have time to squeeze in a few more things during your stay, other suggestions include Ecopark Kantun Chi, Quinta Avenida, Mystica Immersive, Puerto Maya Cancun, and the Santa Rosa Wall (reef/geological formation).

Honourable mentions

You also have the Martina Beach Club, the Cozumel Pearl Farm, the Happy Shuttle in Cancun, and the Mangroves of Dzinitun, along with the Xkopek Parque Apicola, and the Cabana Beach, plus many other treats await you in the Yucatan Peninsula.

The best thing to do would be to try and plan your trip before arriving and leaving things until the last minute. Good planning will help you have an experience you will never forget.
