Suggestions for a Unique, Non-Touristy quick trip to the CANCUN area??

Jump to last reply

Hello fellow travelers,

I have never been in Mexico, yet, I live in California. Sad, I know. I will be flying into Cancun May 12 at 10:30 am and fly out on the 14th at 3:30pm. So that gives me 2 pretty solid days of checking stuff out. I figure I will hang out in Cancun on the 14th to make sure I'm easy able to get to the airport. So the 12th and 13th- I would like to check out other areas. I am a photographer and welcome awesome photographic opportunities.

*I absolutely love old places/ ruins, cool little towns, I'm interested in seeing some cenotes and I'm up for any kind of adventure. I wouldn't mind spending a few hours on some awesome beach (read: the non-touristy beaches).

*I dislike being around the touristy crowds, tourist traps, big casinos/resorts, unsafe areas.

Any side trips that are do-able in a day or day and half? Isla Mujeres? Puerto morelos? Really would like to see some old ruins and/or cenotes.

Also I welcome any ideas for great places to stay/eat. I'm a vegetarian but I do eat fish sometimes.

Please help! and Thank You in advance :)
