At Meza Dental, we began serving international patients in 2004, with the goal of bringing affordable, top-class care to anyone who needed it. We are proud of the work that we have done, and the number of people we have been able to help in the years since.

To this day, our mission is to continue to grow and improve so that we can continue to provide the most inclusive services possible. 

But another side of a comfortable experience is what happens outside of our dentists’ office. That’s why we created our tourism division and began offering our patients help with accommodations, activities, and more. 

Our Guide to Cancún

We recently celebrated the grand opening of our brand-new clinic in Cancún, Mexico, one of the most popular tropical destinations on the planet. And while at the core of the Meza Dental mission is to revitalize your smile, and having a second clinic that’s just a short flight away is really exciting for us, there’s another reason we can’t wait to tell you about it.

As much as we love to talk teeth, we would be remiss not to share the other reason we’re delighted to share this new office — location. A journey to Cancún is a chance to do more than revitalize your smile — it’s a chance to explore a town built from the ground up to enhance the beauty, adventure, and culture of Mexico’s coast. 

That’s why Meza Dental has tourism staff dedicated to helping you fill your between-appointment days with fun in the sun. Just tell them what you’re looking for and they will organize it for you, or help you put together excursions with transportation, a bilingual guide, food and beverage, and experiences you’ll remember forever!

Read on to learn a little bit more about all the amazing things that Cancun has to offer!

Explore Mexican Culture

Mexican culture is rich, colorful, and steeped in tradition, so exploring the city’s museums, theatres, and cultural events can be a great way to immerse yourself in the joyful lifestyle that is so popular with tourists from around the globe.

Here are a few amazing places to discover all things México:

Dive into Mayan History 

…at the beautifully designed Mayan Museum which seamlessly blends tropical outdoor spaces with airy indoor showing areas. Iconic pieces collected from Quintana Roo, Palenque, Chichén Itzá, and Comalcalco, are available to enjoy in free-standing display cases. Stunning sculptures dot the 8-meter-high space. Admission to the museum also includes access to San Miguelito, a pre-Colombian archeological site connected to the museum by a corridor.  

Chichen Itza

This pre-Hispanic archeological site is one of the most important, and most visited destinations in Mexico, and was named one of the new wonders of the world by UNESCO back in 2007.

The towering stepped pyramid for which it is famous is actually only one of 26 different ruins (of different eras) on the site, which was built by the Mayans more than 1,500 years ago.  

Discover the Wonders of Modern Cancun

Take a guided walking tour of the city, where you can learn about its history, wonder at the vibrant street art that graces many of the local buildings, taste some local tequila, and explore an authentic Mexican market where you can find intricately made handicrafts, taste local delicacies and shop.

Find Adventure Just Past Your Doorstep!

Costa Rica and Mexico both enjoy thriving adventure tourism industries, making them great destinations for people who love to push their boundaries and get their adrenaline pumping. Here are just a few amazing adventures that you can have in Cancun…

Celebrate Life with Mexican Cuisine, Music, and Dancing

Tacos and Beer! 

Yes, you read that right. Remember when I said people tend to think of tacos and mariachi bands when they think about Mexico? It’s with good reason. This guided culinary tour will give you the inside scoop on the city’s best tacos, and cervezas, with a side of mariachi and a dash of history to round out the trip.

Crystal Clear Waters and the World’s Most Beautiful Beaches 


A cenote is a sinkhole or natural pit that occurs when limestone bedrock gives way, exposing the groundwater underneath. That definition may not sound very appealing, and that’s a shame because they can hold sparkling turquoise waters touched by dappled sunlight that filters down from above. They are magical places, perfect for swimming… and Mexico has several to choose from!

Playa Del Carmen

One of the most popular beach towns in Mexico is Playa Del Carmen. With its beautiful palm-lined white sand beach and its pedestrian walkway lined with quaint shops and artisan stalls, it’s a great place to spend time in the tropical sun.

Explore Cancún and Revitalize Your Smile!

As you can see, there is no shortage of exciting adventures to be had in and around Cancun. In fact, we’ve just scratched the surface by sharing our personal favorites. You can also explore one of the many historical sites, explore the rainforest, sportfish, kayak, and so much more!
