Cancun

Couples headed to Cancun looking for a more thrilling itinerary than sipping margaritas by the pool can plan the ultimate adventure while staying at the CasaMagna Marriott Cancun Resort. The property is within driving distance from the natural limestone pools that dot the Yucatan Peninsula, which are perfect for cliff jumping, snorkeling, and hiking, and have long been celebrated for their healing qualities. The historic Mayan ruins of Tulum, and the captivating Chichen Itza (one of the seven wonders of the world) are also a quick drive away – so couples can easily check these historic ancient sites off their bucket lists. Lastly, every May through September, couples staying at CasaMagna Marriott Cancun can embark by boat to snorkel alongside the Mexican-Caribbean’s magnificent gentle giants – whale sharks. Though they measure up to 40 feet long and weigh in at 15 tons, whale sharks feed exclusively on plankton and are totally harmless to humans.
