In Cancun, most boats come with the option of having a captain on board which is a great option for you if you don’t have much sailing experience.

This is perfect for you if you are planning a boat party as you cruise on a catamaran/sailboat or if you just want to spend a few days not having to worry about household tasks such as cooking and cleaning.

Although there are many differences between a sailboat and a catamaran, both are well-equipped to provide you with your perfect boating adventure in Cancun. Catamarans are the most popular choice in Cancun, however, it is important for you to choose the boat that best fits you and the experience that you want.
Sailboats are single-hulled spacious vessels that are capable of navigating long routes. Onboard you will find all the necessary room needed to have a luxurious couple of days with a large group of family and friends: sleeping cabins, bathrooms, a kitchen, and living areas. Before your cruise on your sailboat, keep in mind that these types of boats often require more sailing experience. Therefore, if you do not have much experience on the water, we would recommend hiring a boat with a captain. Sailboats are also generally less expensive than catamarans. This is because they use less fuel and do not take up as much docking space.
Catamarans are double-hull vessels, which means that they provide more stability and more space on board. On the bow of the boat, there are usually nets that can be used for sunbathing, watching the ocean beneath you, or even spotting new fauna if the boat is stationary. Due to its stability, this boat is a great choice for avoiding seasickness and is also suitable for claustrophobics thanks to its large open saloon with terraces on each side. However, it is important to remember that the bigger the boat, the more space needed to dock it, which will lead to extra costs.
When you book a sailing trip in Cancun with your family and friends it’s because you want an unforgettable adventure with those closest to you. Whilst taking a jetting around in the Caribbean Sea is already a dream for many, why not make your cruise on a catamaran or sailboat even more fun and have some extras onboard? These can include snorkeling equipment, paddleboards and so many more! Take a trip to a nearby island and then splash around in the beautiful turquoise ocean.

If you yearn to discover more after your tour, it is definitely worth coming back again as there are over 30,000 cenotes for you to explore with your family and friends.
Next, definitely make a trip to climb up the Scenic Tower, which boasts a bird’s-eye view of the city. You have the option of climbing up the tower or taking an elevator. This tower is also part of Xcaret, which is a mixture of a theme park and natural attractions. You can easily spend a whole day here!
