The platform makes it easy for kids and adults to access the water. Refresh yourself with a cold drink or beer available on the platform before diving back in to explore the MUSA, Cancun Underwater Art Museum.

The perfect activity for kids and adults, enjoy some bouncing fun as you jump, flip, and tumble from giant slides and trampolines. Go through slippery stairs, wobbly platforms, and moving tubes. When you check in, the staff will provide you with a bracelet which you can use for multiple visits to the Aquabounce area.

If you want to relax on the dock while your kids exhaust themselves, this is the ideal spot for you.

Cancun: Flowrider Surfing Experience

Surf in Cancun the easy way with the Flowrider wave generator. Spend a perfect afternoon of surfing for beginners or advanced surfers. Listen to great music, sounds of the surf, and shrieks of excitement while enjoying beers and snacks.

Feel safe with a soft surface resembling a trampoline and instructive guides that will provide assistance and coaching to ensure you experience full Flowrider glory.

Visit the wreck General Anaya, a C-58 minesweeper that lays 85-feet under the surface of the ocean. Spot a crowd of eagle rays who like to swim around the minesweeper during the winter. Begin your adventure and enter parts of the wreck with your professional instructor. See huge fish swimming in the chambers of the shipwreck, which is home to a wide variety of marine life. From here, enjoy your second immersion in a coral reef, either at Grumpin or Punta Negra. Gaze at tropical fish, turtles, and other beautiful marine creatures as you reach the bottom at 55-feet deep.

Cancun: Aquaworld Scuba Diving School

8. Cancun: Aquaworld Scuba Diving School

The best way to explore the underwater world of Cancun is, no doubt, by scuba diving. Learn to dive for the first time with a professional diver and discover the wonderful sea life of the Mexican Caribbean. Choose between visiting the colorful Manchones Reef or the mysterious Underwater Museum of Art, also known as MUSA. Both diving locations are home to hundreds of tropical fish, corals, starfish, turtles, and rays. Manchones is a shallow reef located close to Isla Mujeres (Spanish for Island of Women). It’s very common to see turtles here as well as lots of other colorful reef fish and sea life. The Underwater Museum of Art (MUSA) consists of two main locations. The deeper section is great for diving while the shallower part is great for non-divers and snorkelers. During your MUSA dive, see over 450 life-sized statues which are now covered with algae and the coral reef. This man-made reef attracts all kinds of underwater life: the crevices of the sculptures provide great hiding places for fish to breed and inhabit.

Overall rating

4.9 / 5

based on 7 reviews

It is best to see what is possible before each trip in order to plan accordingly. In retrospect, we would have booked even more activities than 3 out of 10. But it was new to us and we are super satisfied with the experiences included! We especially recommend the jungle tour, which takes you through the mangroves in a speedboat, and the flow ride! Not a problem even for beginners like me, as Jonathan (great guy) explains everything and shows how it works

Our guide, Fermanda? Was amazing ! She and the other guides made the ride to the subsee so much fun with good music and great drinks. It is really neat in the subsee and is a great alternative for people who don’t want to snorkel

It was an amazing experience for the family. We were privileged to see some special sightings. The guide and captain were superb. I would definitely do this again

Perfect takeoff, flight and landing on the boat. Nice team and nice photos. Thank you, I can highly recommend.

We had a wonderful guide and the overall experience was amazing!
