A very popular sport over beaches nowadays is parasailing. In Cancun, Mexico you can choose to sail high over the lagoon or the ocean.
You will soar 200 - 300ft. in the air over the white -sand beaches or the lagoon. The lagoon ride gives you beautiful views of the Cancun hotel zone, the lagoon, and the tropical forest. The ocean choice offers fantastic views of the Cancun beaches, the hotel zone, and Isla Mujeres.
The beach and ocean ride is pretty easy to get to. Right on the beach you sign up under a tent, then get a quick boat ride out to the parasail. There is room for two persons. "Pretty amazing", "Fantastic", "Wow"! The comments were all positive and stated with awe.
The rides are offered daily and are about $60 for 30 minutes. Flying time is 10-15 minutes. You can usually sign up at the hotel activities desk.
If you're adventurous, this is the thing for you.
Of course, there is also zip-lining through the jungle!
