Wedding planning is already stressful; so sit back and relax with our Top 5 Activities to do in Cancun, Mexico.1. Riviera Maya Cenotes
“A must-see attraction, located about 30 minutes southwest of the iconic Moon Palace Cancun
, is Boca del Puma Eco Park,” says Jack Benoff of Vacationeeze
, an experienced Caribbean travel agent. It’s no wonder he highly recommends visiting a cenote park for a fun day out. Cenotes (pronounced say-NO-tay) are known as “swimming holes” formed by rainwater in the Riviera Maya that sinks through abundant but porous limestone of the Yucatan Peninsula. The Boca del Puma Eco Park offers swimming, scuba diving, and zip lining of the scenic cenote. You don’t want to miss out on this popular activity!2. Boat Cruising with the Family
Need to break the ice for new families becoming one? Or want to do something fun that incorporates the whole wedding party? Why not try a day cruise with Dancer Cruise.

) at your leisure. With drinks flowing and music playing, what do you have to lose? Rather not spend the whole day on a boat? Try a private sunset cruise instead. According to Mango Weddings & Events
