Attractions of Quintana Roo

Mayan influences have melded with natural features and tourism. Isla Mujeres, El Castillo, and Dolphinariums are prime examples of this reality. The backdrop of fair-weather skies and the blue waters of the Caribbean add the finishing touches to each attraction.

  • Day Trip to Isla Mujeres: This cozy island is only four miles long with access to the entire cultural experience of the region. Mayan ruins, coral reefs, beaches, and cuisine all coalescent here. A 20-minute ferry ride starts the day at 5 a.m. and ends at midnight. Cancan Underwater Museum is constructed in up to six meters of water off the western shoreline. Three exhibits with over 500 sculptures are viewed from glass bottom boats.
  • El Castillo: While not actually located in Quintana Roo, it is worth the 100-mile trek inland to see the best preserved ruin in Mexico. The pyramid has 365 steps leading to a square observation tower. Designs on the walls and steps cast shadows of serpents in various lights. Interiors are filled with archaeological finds including statues, human remains, and precious stones.
  • Dolphinariums: Cozumel is home to this magnificent tourist attraction. There are petting zoos, dives, and swimming expeditions. The Chankanaab National Park is the host to a variety of dolphins such as Bottleneck and Spinner in closed and open sea habitats. This is also home to sea lions and manatees that can be enjoyed during a snorkeling excursion.

Scuba Dive in Belize Barrier Reef

Beginners and expert scuba divers will spend hours on the island of Cancun swimming the Belize Barrier Reef. This is second in size to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia. There are several hard and soft coral and fish species with hundreds more invertebrates. The experience can begin in the Cancun region and move southward for more diversity. With over a dozen impressive cays and three massive atolls, an entire vacation can be spent on the reef.

Tropical Weather in Quintana Roo

With a location facing the east, Caribbean breezes and plenty of sunshine drench Quintana Roo. Its location is less than 1,000 miles from the equator, which means tropical weather rules the yearly calendar. Warm weather clothing with plenty of short sleeves and shorts are the norm.

Travel to Quintana Roo

Cancun is the only international airport in the state providing millions of travelers access annually. Several ports in Juarez, Cozumel, Costa May, and Cancun dominate the cruise ship market. Rental cars can be used for sightseeing and other activities. Driving cars and RVs from the United States or cities in South America is also a long distance option.
