Adopt a dog during your Cancun vacations

Vacationing in Cancun can now translate into pet adoption, while enjoying the famous white sandy beaches, turquoise warm waters, and exotic animals, amongst many other appealing things.

The local and international communities have joined forces for something spectacular: the rehabilitation of injured and abandoned dogs, and the search for their forever homes. Mayan Explore (ME) has decided to join the cause and give these amazing and loving dogs the lives they deserve.


ME is bringing in a new perspective of Responsible Tourism, which involves increasing awareness around pets´ adoption amongst our customers while visiting Cancun and the surrounding area. You may not have thought about adopting a dog during your stay, but why not? What´s stopping you? We have started collaborating with Playa Animal Rescue (PAR) an incredible no-kill shelter that pro-actively finds rescued dogs spectacular forever homes, after carefully curing, spaying and neutering them. All you need is to say “yes”. PAR will take care of the certificates and documents needed to go back home with a new family member. If you don’t live in Mexico, it is much easier than you may think.
