Our first day in Canćun

If you don’t follow me on Instagram yet you would probably not know that I flew out to Canćun Friday morning and arrived Friday night. I have had the awesome opportunity to fly out here by the courtesies of Student City and I also got to bring a friend! On Thursday they had the first day planned for us which I will tell you all about right now! Its so awesome that Student City not only can help you book everything for your trip, but they an also help you plan activities during the days you are here. If you are the kind of person like me and like to go on adventures and explore a country rather then spending all your days by the pool or the beach, thats what you should do. Not that we won’t hang out by the beach as well.

We didn’t know exactly what we were up for sine they didn’t want to tell us before we arrived at the hotel in Canćun. We knew vaguely and had googled some of the things that was on the schedule that we got, but we didn’t know where we were going. We got up around 8, hit the breakfast buffet and met our little guide from student City, Sarah, at 9.30 where we then would have a trip on approximately 45 minutes to where we were going to Zip Line. At least that’s what we thought. Instead, we were first surprised by being taken to the El Rey Polo Country Club where we all got to ride horses on a trail in the middle of the jungle.

After the horseback riding they took us to the place where all the other activities were. Starting out we did the zip lining which was so much fun! I had never done it before which made it even more fun. The trail was actually pretty long and sometimes we had to walk on boards to get to other platforms as well. We got to do it without hands, upside down and also we got a glove to use as a break for some of the lines so we got to try different things.


Then after the zip lines we got to visit one of the xenotes that they have like everywhere in the jungles here. It was a really hot day so it was really nice to jump into the water and relax for a little bit.

Lastly, we finished off the adventures by driving some ATVs through the jungle. It was so much fun since I haven’t been driving one for a while and this time it was in the middle of the jungle! It is really an experience that I would recommend to everyone. The whole day was an amazing experience and we all had so much fun. Student City booked the whole day for us so we didn’t have to do anything but to be ready at the time they told us. It’s really convenient and since Student City staff is available 24/7 for any questions you might have, they are great.

We got home around 4, took a nap and got ready to go out and party. If you follow me on snapchat (@byfia) you know how much fun we had! We got a table at The City which is the biggest nightclub in Central America and we had so much fun. This is definitely a day for the books.
