an all-inclusive hotel for several days, enjoying the Caribbean Sea, its
activities, as well as its sunbathing. Well, today we bring you an article with some secret places that you may not
have known about in Cancun. “Secret” places that Cancun has a lot of charm and
many activities to offer.
Let’s start with the list!!
Although it’s not a secret for locals, it’s for tourists. Isla Blanca, Quintana Roo, is
a corner north of Cancun.
Unlike other beaches in the region, Isla Blanca has been minimally intervened.
The intense white of the sand gives the island its name and the blue that
characterizes the Caribbean is present in the water, so the landscapes are
spectacular. In this place you can practice activities such as sport fishing, cycling
If you want to arrive by car, you must take Bonampak Avenue towards Punta
Sam. This road will take you to Isla Blanca, where you will find places to park
On the other hand, there are buses that leave for Isla Blanca at three different
times during the day, they are located at the corner of López Portillo and Tulum
The Archaeological Zone of San Miguelito is one of the secret corners of Cancun.
It is located within the facilities of the Mayan Museum of Cancun. In addition to
observing some plinths and a small pyramid, San Miguelito has an exuberant
nature with ceiba trees dominating the vegetation.
A few kilometers back, there is a beautiful beach with the same name.
It’s a beach that was hidden for a long time, but now it is one of the most
beautiful beaches in Cancun. So you can take a walk along San Miguelito beach
