If you are about to visit Cancún or are already enjoying the Caribbean Sea, we recommend you
visit La Gran Rueda, one of the biggest local attractions.
Located in the hotel zone, just 25 minutes from Cancún International Airport, next to the La Isla
shopping plaza and over 50 meters high, the Cancún Big Wheel provides spectacular views of the
turquoise Caribbean on one side, and on the other the beautiful lagoon of Nichupté.
You can ride the Big Wheel with your partner, family and/or friends, since the cabin holds up to 6
people. The ride lasts 15 minutes and we recommend you do it in the afternoon if you want to
watch the sunset, or at night to appreciate the city lights and urban landscape of Cancún.
VIP cabins are also available if you want to avoid spending time queuing up for the ride. These VIP
pods also have a transparent floor to make you feel you’re suspended in the sky!
Don’t forget to ask about the special prices available for national and local tourists. You can also
buy a souvenir of the Big Wheel ride in the form of a photo, either digital or printed.
The Cancún Big Wheel is open from Monday to Sunday from 2:00 p.m. onwards.
