Land Activities in



GOLF
Cancun is currently home to three 18-hole, par-72 champion- ship golf courses, with plans for many more in the years to come. Pok-ta-pok, designed by golf architect Robert Trent Jones Jr., is set right on the water, allowing for excellent views of both the lagoon and the Caribbean throughout the course. The course is also home to Mayan ruins-a glimpse of Cancun's ancient past in a modern setting. (For more information, call (011-52-98) 83-0871.)The Caesar Park Hotel's course is cleverly tucked into the resort's property. It was designed by the Aoki corporation, and includes challenging sand traps and a driving range. (Information, call (011-52-98) 81-8000.) Greens fees for both courses will vary depending on season, and will be less expensive at Caesar Park for guests of the hotel. Playacar in the Mayan Riviera is also home to an 18-hole championship course designed by Robert Yon Hagge, located next to the Continental Plaza Playacar hotel. (For information, call (011-52-987) 3-0624.)

TENNIS
Many hotels have tennis courts for guests and others; some are lit up at night. Beginner to intermediate lessons from a professional player may also be available for an extra fee.

HORSEBACK RIDING
Either in the exotic jungle or along the marvelous beaches, you can experience the equine thrill of a lifetime. Call Rancho Lorna Bonita (at (011-52-98) 87-5465) to arrange for one of their 100 horses. Drinks, lunch, guide and transportation are included in the cost.

BULLFIGHTS

(Please use your discretion with the kids; after all, in the time-honored tradition of the Mexican bullfight, the animal will die.)
