Is it possible to go to Cancun for a day while staying at this resort?
Definitely!! It's about 3 hours round trip.
Are there excursions offered at the resort? We are a big group and if people wanted to go off property for the day, it would be good if it were an option.
There are lots of excursions offered with tour companies - many different companies on site but main one is Amstar. It is also very easy to do some things on your own - the Tulum ruins are an $8 US cab ride away; 45 pesos for entrance (must be pesos). Xel-Ha is nearby too - about a $9 US cab ride. Dreams Tulum has an on-site dive shop that is just great - diving and snorkeling tours both in the sea and at cenotes. Very reasonable prices. Here is their web site:
Play del Carmen would be a closer alternative thatn Cancun if people are looking for shopping/partying.
