Cancun International Airport

Content: We took the public transport, which is really good in Mexico. If you prefer renting a car, do so at the airport, so you can return it when your trip is over. This itinerary is quite fast pace, if you have more time we highly recommend to stay longer at some places. For example Holbox, Tulum, or add more places lake the pink lakes, Mahahual etc. See also our other itinerary about Valladolid.

Content: Do the three island tour in the morning. You will go on a tour and possibly see dolphins and flamingos as well. When in the right time of year it is also possible to snorkel with whalesharks. For us swimming with whalesharks left us a little bit torn. It was amazing to see them, but so many boats and tourists can't be good. At different places in Mexico you can have a more genuine experience
