    • Punta Nizuc: A beautiful beach that allows watching the majestic immensity of the Caribbean Sea. It is located at the kilometre 21 of the Hotel Zone.
    -Lake Zone of Nichupte: It is formed by seven lagoons whose depths vary between 30 centimetres and three metres; they are connected and linked through mangroves and canals, which allow the practice of diverse nautical sports on its waters, such as sport fishing, kayaking and snorkelling, besides rides on motorboats. It has a 3000 hectare extension. It is located in the easternmost part of Cancun.

    -Ruins of the King: It is a pre-Hispanic settlement of Mayan origin that maintains two compounds baptised with the names of King and Paintings, wherein you can appreciate 16 structures, two plazas and an equal number of roads.
    There are also remains of paintings at the base of the constructions which, according to scholars, would go back to the Late Postclassical period (1250-1550 D.C.) The archaeological compound presents singular features within Mayan architecture, such as the two plazas and roads, contradicting the classical features of a central plaza surrounded by streets, which characterises all the other constructions of this Mesoamerican culture.
    It is located on a forest opening nearby Nichupte, 17 kilometres plus away from Cancun, and 2.5 kilometres away from Punta Nizuc.

    -Archaeological Zone of El Meco: It is formed by 14 architectonic structures, amongst which The Castle, built at the A Plaza, stands out, besides other religious and civic precincts. The place might had been part of the maritime-terrestrial web of the Mayas, which allowed them to consolidate their economy during the Postclassical period (122-1550 D.C.), a situation that contrasts with its surge during the Early Classical period (300-600 D.C.), when it was a modest hamlet of fishermen dependent of the regional capital. It is located north of Cancun, at the kilometre 2.7 of the Puerto Juarez-Punta Sam highway.

    -Isla Mujeres Island: Its peaceful beauty lures travellers looking for an intimate encounter with the sea in this paradise of crystalline waters and impressive coral reefs. It is located facing Cancun, at a 13 kilometre distance; it is a mass of land with a 7.5 kilometre length and a one kilometre width. Its name was given in 1517 by the Spanish conquistador Francisco Hernandez de Cordova, due to the little statues with female characteristics he found at the site, which represent Ixchel, the fertility goddess of the Mayas.
    The most frequented sites within the island are the beaches of Los Cocos, apt for the practice of diverse aquatic sports; Lancheros, home of centenarian sea turtles; and Garrafon, a kind of submarine garden invaded by corals where scuba diving is imperative. Another point of interest is the so called Dormitorio (Bedroom), a cemetery of pirate ships at almost 10 metres of depth.
    You have to board a motorboat or a shuttle at Puerto Juarez or Playa Linda, in the Hotel Zone of Cancun in order to get to Mujeres Island.
