Cancun is a resort destination and as such there are all kinds of businesses that cater to your needs and likes. Most of the businesses are legit and they do offer some amazing tours and activities but, there are some businesses that are looking for ways to take advantage of you, the visitor. These are the so called "Tourists Traps." A "tourist trap" is nothing but a simple scam. The most common types of scams are the "Free Offers" and the "2 for 1 Offers" that you will find all over the place.

If you encounter a person or business that offers you a "free tour" or a "free meal" or a "free rental car," you get the idea? Ask yourself when was the last time you got something for FREE, really? The same goes for the 2 x 1 cards and offers where you pay for the cards in advance and you supposed to get all kinds of discounts. Please be aware of these scams. You know what they say... If it is too good to be true, then it probably isn't and these people or businesses are just trying to take advantage of you and your family.

If you encounter any of these scams in Cancun or on the Internet and you want to report them, please send us an e-mail to [email protected] and we will forward it to the appropriate authorities.


Approximately 98% of the people that visits Cancun goes on a tour or enjoys an activity or excursion. Tours will be a fundamental part of your vacation. We guarantee you will be taking a tour or two. We strongly suggest you book your tours with a certified/authorized tour operator. Prices for the authentic tours are pretty much the same. YOU WILL FIND PRICES THAT ARE LOWER BUT THE TOURS OFFERED ARE NOT THE AUTHENTIC TOURS OR THEY ARE A "MODIFIED VERSION" of the original tours. How modified? Well, let's say that by the end of the tour you will not feel satisfied.

As part of our commitment to INTEGRITY IN TRAVEL, we must inform you about these companies that offer lower prices and DO NOT deliver, however, we CAN NOT tell you which companies are legit and which are not. The easiest way to figure it out is by checking if the company is a member of an organization or association such of ASTA (American Society of Travel Agents).

Remember, a lower price does not mean you are saving any money, it just means you are getting a modified version of the tour. IF YOU LIKE TO SAVE MONEY, THEN BOOK YOUR TOURS ONLINE. THIS IS THE ONLY WAY TO SAVE MONEY WITHOUT BEING CHEATED. JUST MAKE SURE THAT YOU BOOK YOUR TOURS WITH A COMPANY LIKE CANCUNFUNTOURS.COM, of course!
We will enchant you!
