Zero interest in Cancun - going anyway. What is there to do if ..."

Jump to last reply

I hate the beach and am prone to sun-poisoning?

My niece will be receiving a trip next summer from her father as a graduation present, with me (favorite aunt, helped raise them) as a chaperone. I did this with her sister two years ago - it was a fantastic 17 day, five country tour through Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Goteborg and London. My niece can choose anywhere in the world - and she chose Cancun.
I am not a beach person, nor do I really have any interest in Cancun (I'm a museum, cafe, strolling through European cities kind of traveler.)

So - what is there for me to do other than sit in the hotel room and read?
I'm actually at the point where I think I might say I'm not the right person to take her - and turn down the free trip!
