How the Cancun Explorer Pass Works

The Cancun Explorer Pass is a digital product that gets you into all the most famous local attractions you’re so excited to discover. All you need to do is take your Cancun Explorer Pass right up to your attraction’s entrance gate, have it scanned by a friendly staff member, and head right in to your attraction. There’s no waiting in line, no exchange of money on site.

The Cancun Explorer Pass lets you pick 3, 4, 5, 7, or 10 attractions from a list of 29 distinctive attractions. You purchase the denomination of the pass in advance, and can’t add or subtract attractions later.

The Cancun Explorer Pass is specially designed to function with the Go City Card app. You can download this app for free right onto your smartphone, or choose to simply print out a paper version of your Explorer Pass, too. It’s your call.

The Chicago Explorer Pass is valid for 30 days after you activate it with your first attraction visit. You have one year from the date of purchase to use the pass.

What’s Good? 

For many customers, the fact that all Go City Card products are digital is a great convenience. This means you don’t need to worry about leaving your passes at home or in the hotel, or stress over them getting lost in the mail on the way to your door. All you need is a smartphone

The Cancun Explorer Pass also comes with a free digital guidebook that includes such helpful local information as attraction maps, contact information, location, hours, and more. This is handy as it cuts down on the advance research you need to do before your visit, and eliminates any concerns you might have about forgetting important details such as an attraction’s address or hours.

If you don’t see an attraction you’re interested in visiting listed as an option, don’t worry: Go City Card’s attraction lists are frequently updated to include new opportunities. Just check the Explorer Pass website before your trip to get the latest list of attractions available to you with your pass.

What Could Get Better?

Some people don’t care too much for the fact that the Go City Card attractions list is dynamic. Since that list is always subject to change, it can be a bit irritating to worry about whether or not you have the most up-to-date information.

In most cases, the Cancun Explorer Pass does not cover admission to special exhibits, which can be disappointing at a place like, say, Chichen Itza. If your Explorer Pass does cover some sort of extra, it will be noted on the website.

If you want to be able to use your Cancun Explorer Pass on your smartphone, you’ll have to download the Go City Card app. Though this useful app is free, not everybody wants to put yet-another app on their device. If you feel that way, and want to avoid adding another app to your phone, you’ll have to print out paper copies of your passes. You can do this for the complimentary guidebook, too.

Get Your Money’s Worth with a Cancun Explorer Pass

The Cancun Explorer Pass advertises a savings rate of roughly 53%. This number compares the total amount you’d pay for the Explorer Pass to the total amount you’d pay at the door of your chosen attractions.

Unless you know in advance for certain which exact attractions you want to visit, the calculations can get a bit confusing. As a result, a reliable method for making sure you’re maximizing your savings throughout your trip is to use your Explorer Pass to cover the most expensive attractions and pay out of pocket for those cheaper outings.
