4 Adventurous Outdoor Activities in Mexico

There are a lot of things that come to mind when you think about a trip to Mexico. You could sample the food, soak up the vibrant atmosphere of Mexico City, or leave all the cares of the world behind and do nothing other than lying on the beach for two weeks. They’re all pretty solid options, for sure! But did you know that Mexico is also a pretty special place for outdoor activities? With so much natural beauty, visitors can do a wide range of recreation activities. Below, we take a look at five options that’ll have you into the outdoors and your blood pumping.

Up in the Sky

Do you ever wonder what it’d be like to be a bird? Or how about a bird that can also drink champagne, and spend a memorable day with their loved one? OK, we’re not really talking about being a bird anymore - we’re talking about taking a hot air balloon ride! There are spots all throughout the country that allow you to see the land from up in the sky, but the most special spot might be the Teotihuacan pyramids. Instead of slugging away in the car to see the famous attractions, take to the sky and get an amazing view.

Under the Sea 

You’ve seen the pictures of the mesmerising, picturesque crystal clear waters of Mexico’s beaches. And you might have even splashed around a bit in there! But what about getting under the sea and exploring like a fish? Mexico has a well-deserved reputation for being one of the world’s best diving locations. There are diving sites everywhere, but the best might be the Cenote Dos Ojos, Discovery Bay, and the Manchones Reef. It’s an especially good place to dive if you’re a complete beginner, too.

Exploring Caves

You don’t have to be up in the sky or under the sea to have a good time; there’s also fun to be had on level ground, too. Well, kind of level ground: we’re talking about caves, of which Mexican has many. These are much more than just a single cave to enter and take a quick photo: they are massive systems of caves, which make for a great day of exploring. One of the best examples is the Cacahuamilpa Caves, which are located in Grutas de Cacahuamilpa National Park. There’s much to see there, so book a room at Ixtapan de la Sal Marriott Hotel, and give yourself a few days to see everything. After all, these are one of the largest cave systems in the world. Down the River We think of the water in Mexico as being all about the ocean, but this isn’t true: it has plenty of rivers, too. And this means that Mexico is a great place to brush up on your kayaking skills! You can take them down a river through rainforests, all the while exploring the country in a peaceful way. If you like your river action a bit faster paced, then take a look at white water rafting.
