Advice to Make Trip Memorable

Hi! My boyfriend and I just booked the Grand Sunset Princess for late July of this year. We do want to relax but this is his first time in Mexico and my first time in this part so we also want some culture and adventure. Any advice on the following:

Whale Shark swimming


Dog rescue - thinking some work doing something good may be an idea


Jungle tour

Chicken Itza

Any tips on places where we can experience local life without being intrusive?

Thank you in advance and I hope all of your trips are amazing!

Have a taxi take you to Puerto Morelos La Colonia. You can wander around, see local life, eat some great foods and hang out. After you can grab a very cheap cab to the beach side of Puerto Morelos and do a snorkel trip very cheap to the 2nd lagest coral reef in the world. Do it with the locals and support their income. It is about $25 pp. For more info go to the Puerto Morelos forum and look under top questions on the right side of the page "snorkeling".
