With beach clubs and day trips, parades and festivals, spring break in Cancun is also fantastic for couples, solo travelers, and groups of friends.

Spontaneity takes planning, so if friends or family will drop everything to take a last-minute Cancun-hopping trip, here are some of the best ways to relax, recharge and find moments of fun with Easter holidays in Cancun.

Enjoy Cancun at Easter

Each day is a new beginning when you choose to spend the Easter holidays in Cancun.

In addition to the hustle and bustle of the Hotel Zone – a hotspot for restaurants, bars, and shopping – the city is filled with things to do and see that will inspire you to follow your passions.

From rich cultural traditions and authentic cuisine to beautiful landscapes and luxury resorts, the invitation is endlessly open to connect with Mexico.

Getting to Know Quintana Roo and Cancun

Quintana Roo, incorporating the Riviera Maya, is the 30th and youngest state in Mexico with a population of just over 1.8 million residents. It’s named after the well-known lawyer Andres Quintana Roo who supported Mexico’s fight for Independence. The capital city of Quintana Roo is Chetumal, one of Mexico’s main trading ports with the country of Belize.

Situated on the eastern part of the Yucatan peninsula, Quintana Roo is the state that homes many vacation resort destinations, such as Cozumel, Playa del Carmen, Puerto Morelos, and Cancun.

Cancun has some of the best beaches, clubs, and outdoor activities to enjoy in all of Mexico, and regularly tops rankings for best destinations to spend Easter holidays or spring break.

For locals, it’s all about finding the ideal spot to watch the sun dip below the cerulean waters. But that’s not the end of the party. Come nightfall, the whole of Cancun gets a second wind, to dance to salsa, and drink tropical cocktails, fashioned with craft tequilas and mezcal.

Ready to have fun and fiesta? Let’s take a look at what’s close by to Villa del Palmar Cancun.

Close By and Can’t Miss

Playa Delfines

Playa Delfines is not only one of the largest beaches in Cancun, but it also has some of the brightest, clearest waters to be found along the stretch of coast. Whether you find yourself drawn to the white sand and translucent waters or you like to watch parasailers and pelicans, what makes Playa Delfines exceptional is the fact that there are no hotels, restaurants, or anything else built on this beach, ideal for renewing energy.

Swimming with Dolphins

If you still fancy making a further splash, swimming with dolphins is always a fun thing to do. Dolphin Discovery offers three different experiences where you can interact, play with and even hug a dolphin. You can choose the Royal Swim, where two friendly dolphins will teach you about their agility, intelligence, and strength.

Nichupte Lagoon

Nichupte Lagoon

Nichupte Lagoon is one of the best examples of natural paradise, spanning over 3,000 acres. It has seven lakes and in its waters, you can practice various activities such as fishing, kayaking, canoeing, scuba diving, and snorkeling.

The most popular activity in this lake is the boat ride through the jungle to get to know the different types of flora and fauna that live there. You can even visit a stunning coral reef.

Blaze New Trails

There’s nothing better than a day trip to immerse yourself in a completely new perspective. Cancun holidays are all about showcasing Mexico in ways you’ve never heard of, enabling you to see the history and heart of many destinations.

Isla Mujeres

Isla Mujeres (Island of Women) boasts seafood restaurants, moped and boat tours, snorkeling, kayaking, and an aquatic funday park.

The Punta Sur, the southern tip is a hot spot thanks to its lighthouse, the remains of a Mayan temple, and a sanctuary for sea turtles.


These aren’t the only options as under the sea close by lies the MUSA – Museo Subacuático de Arte housing a total of 500 sculptures within three different galleries, submerged between three and six meters deep in the ocean. It’s the most cultural dive you’ll ever take and reached easily from Isla Mujeres, or the mainland.

Chichen Itza

Chichen Itza was a large pre-Columbian city built by the Maya people of the Terminal Classic period. The archaeological site is located in Tinúm Municipality, Yucatán State, between Valladolid and Merida, and is roughly a 2.5-hour drive from Cancun. Chichen Itza is now officially one of the New Seven Wonders of the World and is a must-see attraction.

A massive step pyramid, known as El Castillo dominates the ancient city, which thrived from around 600 A.D. to the 1200s. Visit the Temple of the Warriors and the Wall of the Skulls. A highlight is the sound-and-light shows illuminating the buildings and ruins.

Puerto Morelos

Named after another independence leader, Jose Maria Morelos, Puerto Morelos is a popular tourist and expat city that is broken into two little towns, situated between Cancun to the north and Playa del Carmen to the south.

There’s a crocodile zoo, a beach protected by reefs, botanical gardens with archaeological remains, and a plethora of coastal town shops and restaurants.

A natural wonder is the sheer host of cenotes – natural sinkholes or underground pits containing a body of very clear water. The cenotes in Puerto Morelos are famous due to their proximity to both Cancun and Playa del Carmen. In the cenotes, you can swim, snorkel or visit the caves.

Playa Del Carmen

Playa del Carmen was once a fishing village in the heart of the Riviera Maya. Nowadays it’s a cosmopolitan beach town with a wide gastronomic fare and a host of entertainment options. It is known for its miles-long, palm-lined beaches, cenotes, white sands, and coral reefs. The perfect town for variety, romance, relaxation, and adventure all expertly woven together.
