When it comes to vacationing in Cancun, one of the first things that come to mind includes sand, sun, and R&R. We love indulging in all of the fantastic and great amenities that resorts offer.
We agree that relaxing poolside would be quite a treat! However, a vacation wouldn’t be complete without a little adventure as well. Aside from its endless stretch of all-inclusive resorts, Cancun is also a destination that is vibrant, teeming with adventure and energy.
If you’re looking to have a little fun along paradise, here are our Top 5 things to do along the strip!
Parque Las Palapas – Known as the true heart of Cancun, the Parque de las Palapas (translated as, the ‘Park of the Palapas’), is a fantastic place to take in the different sights and sounds of the destination. The Parque de las Palapas is a great area if you want some great eats, local entertainment, and fun souvenirs in a fun local vibe. This area is bustling with tourists and locals alike, and for good reason! It is a fun and wholesome place to check out!
Coco Bongo – If you’re looking for a little fun along Cancun’s notorious resort strip, Coco Bongo will definitely blow your expectations out of the water. Coco Bongo redefines the party atmosphere, offering incredible special effects performances and amazing music that will have you dancing the night away. It's also known as the BIGGEST nightclub in Cancun. Oh, and did we mention open bar until 3AM?
Malecon Tajamar – Photographers take note! Though you can get a picture-perfect shot virtually ANYWHERE along the coastline of Cancun, Malecon Tajamar is a stunning boardwalk that offers views of the coastline as far as the eye can see.
5th Avenue in Playa del Carmen – Though it may not be directly located right ON the Cancun strip, we cannot resist putting the popular 5th Ave on the list! Spanning several blocks along downtown Playa del Carmen, 5th avenue has it all. You can find it all here- from modern storefronts to fun bars and restaurants.
