Another new location opening for Green Motion!
Green Motion grows again!
Looking for a destination with 14 miles of pristine white beaches, crystalline waters and sophisticated seafood restaurants? Cancún is waiting for you!
Laced with luxury, parties, large resorts, and beautiful beaches, Cancún is a tale of two cities. Outside of the main resort area of Cancún, you’ll find a very local city with few tourists and many friendly people. Travel to the edges of the city to experience the breath-taking beaches.
Don’t let the party reputation fool you – Cancún has much, much more to offer than that.
The large Mayan archaeological site Chichen Itza is one of the New Seven Wonders of the World. The site is 2.5 hours from Cancún, so it’s usually best to go very early in the morning or if possible, over two days. The best way to get around Cancún is to rent-a-car to ensure ease of your travels.
The most impressive structure on the site is the Temple of Kukulkan or the Castillo, as it is often known; the elaborate wall carvings and columns throughout the entire site make it a world-class attraction.
Cancún has a nightlife which rivals any other big city. Most of the nightlife is concentrated around the Hotel Zone in an area known as “party central.” All music tastes are accounted for and the world’s biggest DJs make regular appearances. During spring break, things get far more crowded and more expensive.
It’s no surprise that Selvatica is Mexico’s number one tourist attraction. Within the park you’ll have the opportunity to ride ziplines over the rainforest canopy, go off-roading, quad biking, scuba diving and swimming in a cenote. Opt for the Night Flight adventure, which includes zipping through the canopies, followed by a 3-course dinner.
In Cancún, you can find the world’s most widespread range of underwater caves and cavern systems. Several major documentaries have been filmed here. You can take a snorkelling tour through the pristine waters, ride zip lines, or power through the trees on a SkyCycle.
Shortly after a detrimental storm hit the marine world of Cancún, an artist set out to aid in the reconstruction process. This ‘museum’ features over 400 sculptures, which are platforms for coral growth. Since its founding in 2009, a lot of growth has occurred and every spring, more plants bloom.
Cancún lies along the Great Mesoamerican Reef, the largest reef in the western hemisphere. The area has over 100 types over coral and more than 160 types of reef-inhabiting fish. For even better opportunities, head over to Cozumel or Playa del Carmen.
