Take an Adventure Rich in Culture and History
From Cancun to Cabo San Lucas, the diverse landscape of Mexico promises to be an adventure trip of a lifetime. Rich in history, culture and natural beauty, Mexico travel allows you to discover active adventures from coast to coast.
On the eastern shore of Mexico at the tip of the Yucatan Peninsula sits the adventure travel city of Cancun. With stand-up paddleboarding, ziplining and ATV exploring at your fingertips, it’s no wonder that Cancun is considered a must for those seeking adventure vacations. You can also learn to surf in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico or swim with the gigantic yet gentle whale sharks at Isla Mujeres during the summer. For many active adventures in one location, Cancun Adventure is the place to be. Here you can zip line along a 2.2 mile course, explore the jungle via amphibious vehicles or swim underground among stalactites and stalagmites.
Located at the southern end of Baja California, Cabo San Lucas offers an equally exciting opportunity for active adventures along the Pacific Ocean. Access secluded beaches via ATVs or try deep sea fishing in the Sea of Cortez, which is nicknamed the “marlin capital of the world.” Visit Wild Canyon in Los Cabos for a wide range of activities that are perfect for adventure vacations, including crossing the longest wooden pedestrian hanging bridge in the world, ziplining over the canyons of the Baja Desert and bungee jumping 300 feet out of a glass bottomed gondola.
Regardless of which coast you decide to visit during your Mexico travel experience, you’ll find plenty of active adventures as well as incredible Mexican resorts. Having trouble narrowing the options for your adventure trip? Watch our travel videos to find inspiration for your next Mexico vacation!
