5 Insane Things to do in Cancun When it Rains in October

Things to do in Cancun when it rains: So you finally did it. You finally decided to come to Cancun. You saved up money. Took time off from work. Got your passport updated. Bags are packed. Hotel booked. Airport transfer shuttle paid for.

Everything is in order. But then…

Rain!? On your vacation?? Could things get any worse?  I mean, these sort of things only happen to you, right? You can already feel the embarrassment coming on. You know everyone will ask you ‘how was your big trip to Cancun?” ‘Oh well, at least I tried’ you think to yourself… ‘At least I can stay inside a nice hotel.’

Nonsense! Don’t give up!

This is CANCUN we’re talking about! The land of extreme adventure. You think a little rain is going to stop you from having fun in Cancun!? Pfft. Let me show you something that will save your Cancun vacation.

I’m not talking about having a positive attitude, and pretending the rain isn’t there. I’m not recommending that you go to the beach, and simply hold an umbrella over you. No. I’m not recommending you run from the rain. I’m saying you should run TO the rain.

Embrace it. Feel lucky.

How in the world are you going to do that? It’s easy actually. Here’s our guide to 5 Insane Things to do in Cancun When it Rains in October. Genius, right?

1.       Grip it and Rip it with a Kickass Polaris ATV

When life throws us lemons, we do what? We make kickass lemonade is what we do. So there’s a little rain here and there. So what? So the ground is muddy. Who cares?

When you’re behind the wheel of an exhilarating Polaris ATV, these are all GOOD things. Why? Because Polaris ATVs eat mud for breakfast. They were specifically designed for this terrain.

Plus, did we mention Polaris makes this ATV!? We doubt you’ve ever experienced suspension this good. The acceleration? You’ll feel like a kid again. Speaking of which…

The mud is your friend. This is Cancun. Let loose. Let the mud fly. Get dirty.

Think about it.

This is the Mayan Jungle. This is Selvatica. This is how we roll.

2.       Soar Over the Mayan Jungle Canopy on a Thrilling Zipline

People did not evolve to fly. We don’t have wings. We’re all stuck down here. Unless…

Find out what it feels to fly! There’s no rush like soaring through the air on a zipline. The view itself is worth the price of admission. This is one of the best Cancun rainy day activities.

Why? Because you’re going to love the way the rain feels as you’re zipping by. It’s the perfect antidote to the hot, steamy weather.

You see? We told you we’d find a way to embrace the rain.

3.       O.M.G. Is that a…Bungee Swing!?

You came to Cancun for adventure right? Well, then there’s no backing down now. You wanted to create memories of a lifetime right? Then just close your eyes and do it. No thinking. Just doing.

We’re talking about walking over the edge. We’re talking about a bungee swing. First, you climb the stairs attached to the tree. Then, they strap you to the bungee. Then it’s time.

No more waiting. No more procrastinating. No more watching ‘the other guys’ jump off. Now it’s your turn. Now is your chance to conquer fear itself, and check off another item from your bucket list.

Let’s do it together. On three. One-Two-Three!!!

WOW. Talk about an adrenaline rush huh?

4.       Discover the Fountain of Youth—A Mayan Cenote!

There’s nothing more fun than a Mayan jungle adventure in the rain. The temperature is perfect. The activities are insanely thrilling. The mud? Well…it’s everywhere.

Not to worry…

You think we’re going to let you go home like that? Sweaty, muddy, and exhausted?

This is Selvatica you’re talking about. We didn’t become the number one outdoor attraction (5 years in a row!) with that mentality.

Introducing: The Mayan Fountain of Youth.

You know the reinvigorating feeling you get after you take a shower? Imagine that…ON STERIODS. The crystal clear fresh water will cleanse you to the core.

The best part?

You don’t walk in our cenotes. You hang on to the zipline, and let go right in the middle!

5.       Participate in the Circle of Life

Wow. What an adventure huh? We told you a little rain wasn’t going to stop you. In fact, just admit it. The rain made it even more awesome. So let’s not forget to pay our respects to the star of the show: The Mayan Jungle.

Without her, none of this is possible. But how can you help?

It’s simple. After you’re all done, place a seed in an expired helmet. Dig a small hole. Place the helmet inside the hole. Add some water. And Voila!

Soon enough, you’ll have contributed to another tree in the Mayan jungle. Pretty cool huh?

Selvatica’s Seed of Life program has shrunk our carbon footprint by over 7.8 million tons of carbon!

Best Cancun Adventure is Selvatica [5 reasons why]

There are two reasons why millions of tourists flock every year to Cancun: for beauty and adventure. It’s easy to see why. Everywhere you look, there’s something gorgeous to look at. Everyone knows about the soft-sanded beaches. There’s also the piercingly turquoise waters. Let’s not forget about the sparkling cenotes throughout.

But Cancun is more than that…

There’s also a vast Mayan jungle daring you to conquer it.That’s the other side of Cancun. The side that invites adventure. Like we said, there are two ways to enjoy Cancun: looking (beauty) and doing (adventure).

Some people don’t like adrenaline. Others demand it. It’s their way of ‘feeling alive’. For fans of extreme excursions, Cancun is your playground. Here, you can be free. Unshackle the chains of polite society.

The question is:

When the Mayan jungle beckons, do you answer the call?

For those who shout ‘yes’. Please proceed. We’re going to let you in on a little secret.

For those still unsure: don’t give up yet. Nothing summons the spirit like, adventure. This is the perfect proving grounds for conquering fear.

So step up to the plate. This is your chance to have a jungle excursion in Cancun.

But where you may be asking?

If you’ve been here before, it’s obvious.The best Cancun adventure is Selvatica.

Look’s look at 5 of the best reasons why that’s true.

1.-Insane ziplines over a jungle canopy

Where’s the best place to zipline in Cancun? Selvatica! Selvatica is the premier adventure park in Cancun. Situated in the heart of the Mayan jungle, at Selvatica, anything is possible.

And that includes…

Soaring through the air, over a jungle canopy, upside-down on a zipline!

That’ll wake you up!

Need more? Try Selvatica’s vaunted Tarzania Zipline. Not all ziplines were created equally.

Let me explain:

Most ziplines follow a single path. You start at the top, and gravity takes you down. Not Tarzania. No, Tarzania blazes its own trail. First, you go down.

But guess what? Now you’re going back up again. Then left. Then right.

It’s truly is zipline madness.

the best human roller coaster is Tarzania

 

2.-Get Muddy on a badass Polaris ATV

Think back to your childhood. Remember when you could run freely through the mud? Return to your youth. Selvatica grants you license to ‘get dirty’ again.

Here’s how. Hop on a Polaris ATV. Here’s a tip: make SURE it’s a Polaris.

What’s the difference? Ever been on a buddy’s beat-up pickup truck? You know. Where the suspension is shot and you can feel every bump on the road? Then you drive a Cadillac and it feels like you’re driving on a cloud.

That’s the Polaris difference.

It’s not only that, though. It’s instant acceleration. The stop-on-a-dime brake system. And if anything happens? You have state-of-the-art roll bars for protection.

With nothing to worry about, the Mayan jungle is yours to conquer. One more tip: when they offer you a pair of goggles….wear them! The last thing you need is mud in your eye!

3.-Don’t look down! Hanging Aerial Bridges ahead

Do you have a fear of heights? The ability to stay calm when it matters most? Then prove it.

Walk, high up in the air, over wobbly hanging aerial bridges. But what if you fall? Fear not. You’ll be strapped up to a cable of course!

But don’t let that fool you. Even though you know you’re not in mortal danger, it still gets your heart racing.

4.-The fountain of youth is real: they’re called Cenotes

You know that feeling? The one you get when you come out of the shower after long grueling day? There’s nothing more refreshing. It’s completely reinvigorating. And how couldn’t you be?

Just a moment ago, you were filthy and worn out. Now? Full of life and clean as a whistle. Now take that feeling…and multiply it by a 100. That’s how you’ll feel when you exit our cenote. Remember, by this point, you’re going to be covered in mud, sweat, and exhaustion.

Think about it: is that how you want to drive home?

Instead, hang on to a zipline and enter our cenote with a splash! Is that too easy for you? Need something bolder? Try diving headfirst off a 60-foot ledge! Speaking from personal experience, if you do the big jump, point your toes downwards.

Just trust me on that. =)

Jump into the fresh cenote water and make a splash

 

5.-Make a difference in the world with our ‘Seed of Life’ program

What’s the Selvatica difference? Here, you’re not just another ticket sold. We’re in this together. When you’re here, you’re part of the tribe. We have your back. Your tribe leader will be with you for the whole journey.

Every year, we thank the jungle. Why? Because without the jungle, there is no Selvatica. Every year thousands of trees are cut down. The worst part? They’re being cut down faster than they’re growing.

Together, we can help. It’s easy. Place a seed in an expired helmet. Then dig a hole, and place the helmet inside. That’s it. With this simple project, we have shrunk our carbon footprint by MILLIONS of tons. 7.8 to be exact.

Honor the forest. Without it, there’d be no Cancun jungle adventure!
