Cancun has a large variety of activities available. The hotels are so nice that many visitors are happy to spend their vacation at the hotel. If you want some other things to do here are some activities and approximate US prices as of December 2006. Prices are per adult unless otherwise stated.
Jungle Tour by Aqua World $38.50 Ride a wave runner and then snorkel. I liked this one.
Atlantis Submarine $32 Child, $64 adult - I liked this one.
Chichen Itza – Transportation Only $30 Adult, Child $14 All day tour to the ruins. A deluxe trip may include a deluxe double decker bus, breakfast and lunch, drinks, and admission. This costs more than twice as much as the transportation only trip, but you get a lot more.

A park with lots of attractions. Trips vary in time and transport options.

Prices and details change so verify everything. Be aware that very low prices are sometimes offered for activities. This usually requires something like a time-share presentation. Avoid this unless you want to spend hours getting a high pressure sales pitch!
