Meet your captain at the Aquaworld Marina on Kukulcan Boulevard in Cancun, across the street from the Paradisus Cancun Hotel. Stash your personal belongings in the lockers provided, and receive your safety gear and a briefing before you step onto a jet boat called the Aqua Twister.
Once you’re ready, hang onto the safety bar in front of you as the jet boat sets off at the high speeds that make this ride such an awesome rush. Get used to leaning in all directions as the boat whips you around the swamp-lined lagoon, then charges to a stop before a dizzying 270-degree spin.
During the adrenaline-pumping ride, your group can prepare in between the tricks with a countdown. When it’s time for another spin, remember that the captain is in complete control; it's a reassuring thought when the boat tilts on its side. It’s all part of the experience, so wear clothes that can get wet! It’s not a time to bring your cell phone or cameras because objects will fly!
Recover for a moment and drink some water (provided). You might spot a crocodile, leopard frog, iguana or white turtle as you brace yourself for the captain’s next maneuver.
At the end of your 30-minute ride, return to the Aquaworld Marina to end your tour. Enjoy a shower before retrieving your belongings from the lockers. After the wild ride, you might just feel unsteady on land.
