Things to do near GBP Bouganville

We are thinking of staying at this resort next winter for 2 weeks and was wandering about some of the activities off resort. We are use to the Mayan where there are several options of things to do like go to the beaches of Akumal and Tulum where you can snorkel or just sit at a bar and have snacks and drinks and watch the world go by, or go to Playa Del Carmen so the wife can look at some cheap souvenirs.

Are there any interesting tours we should contemplate or any place to just hop in a cab and go hang out for a couple of hours and have a few drinks

One fun easy thing we did was visit Cueva de las Maravillas (Cave of Marvels) just five or ten minutes by cab from the hotel. We got a cab from the hotel lobby and the cabbie waited for us. Took an hour, hour and a half tops for a very interesting visit to a huge cave and then an iguana farm and we were back for lunch.

The cave sounds interesting but an iguana farm?

It's on the grounds of the cave and part of the tour. I think you can also do horseback riding there if you wish

Really not much around the resort, it's a 25 minute drive to either town east and west.

We did the Saona Island VIP tour through Seavis tours, booked it prior to arrival online from home. They don't sell this one from the resort. Seavis picked us up at the lobby of the sister resort, as there is no road to the lobby of the Bouganville. (makes for a lovely quiet lobby area).

We were there for 2 weeks and only did the one tour, but we are beach people and just enjoy the R &R.

Highly recommend the resort, we've been travelling for 13 winters and have NEVER had such great service. We're heading back in February for another 2 weeks.

At the resort there are tours for Saona Island, Catalina Island, Santo Domingo tours, and I did see something about jeep and ziplining I believe.
