Cancun-day trip?

Leaving on Wednesday. For the most part just want to relax, but may plan a day trip. Any suggestions? Plan on buying sun screen at the hotel. Sound doable? Staying at Riu Cancun.

The day trip most recommended here is taking the ferry boat over to Isla Mujeres and spend the day - other than that, check out the links on the right side of the page - where it says Cancun Itineraries and Day Trips - which are recent posts compiled by the forum Destination Experts. Plenty more ideas there.

Bring your sun block with you, its way too expensive there.

Definitely bring your own sunscreen, unless you're ok with spending $25 on a bottle that's worth $8 in the US.

Chicken Itza or Tulum are nice day trips if you're into Mayan ruins. Otherwise an activity tour like Selvatica or Xel Ha are popular. Otherwise, Isla Mujeres is nice and laid back (like a previous poster recommended).

Enjoy!
