    Hey guys so my wife and I are going in January, it’ll be our first time at TR, and in Cancun in general. What are some other things to do in the area that you guys have done and enjoyed? Thanks in advance!

    You don't say how long your there..... we'd recommend just enjoying the party, a separate plus for us, is sailing the Hobie Cat off the beach or trying other water sports with the guys , they're a great bunch.. quite a few go on the ferry to the Isla Mujeres. If your brave, there's always the Boob Cruise... go twice !!

    TTR and Desire aren't really the resorts to go and see the Mayan Riviera with. They're a huge, fun, exciting, and recently $$$ party. You come here to have an amazing time at the resort. If you want to see Mexico I'd stay somewhere quieter, and probably cheaper. Diving's our only excursion when we stay here, plus the Boobs Cruise!

    That being said, definitely head down the Mayan Riviera and see stuff one trip. Our favourites:
    Diving - if you're not certified then this is the place to do it. There's a national park just off the coast with all sorts of cool creatures, caves, sharks (depending on the season), and you can even dive some fairly technical cenotes.
    Xel'ha - it's a snorkeling resort south of Cancun
    X'caret - cultural Disneyland. They have an evening show that covers some neat cultural history (even if it's a little, er, Spanish-leaning)
    Tulum, Coba, etc. - Mayan ruins. You can get up close and personal at Coba, and Tulum is way less crowded than Chichen Itza

    Most of these are anchor trips you can turn into full-day adventures with a local lunch and visit to a cenote. They're worth it, but check Tripadvisor before committing to a tour company. We've also stumbled into boring, full day tours of mangroves (pre-Tripadvisor days), so a bunch of real, positive reviews is a must.

    Depending on the length of your stay, you can consider a quick day trip to Isla Mujeres. Easy to walk from the resort to the ferry terminal, book a golf cart right there for when you get to the Island and go with the flow once on the Island. There’s bar, ruins, touristy stuff, beaches, great food and you go your own pace. When you’re done, return your golf cart, hop back on the ferry and join the party back at TTR!

    If your only at TTR for a few days, the best advice is to stay there… there’s lots going on. For more than a week, consider an outing if you’d like but be warned, everyone will tell you what you missed when you get back, hehe!

    Isla Mujere is my wife's favorite off site place to go. Its cheap she can get her shopping fix and its pretty cool to explore the island in a golf cart. The ferry is a short walk down the beach and cost is cheap.
