Share The Article

Most travelers who vacation in Cancun choose the destination for the sunshine, beautiful beaches, and many attractions to enjoy.   

Most of those attractions are ones to enjoy outdoors in the beautiful weather, but Cancun is about to get an unexpected new tourist attraction at the recently opened Grand Outlet Mall.   

It’s an Olympic-sized ice rink that will not only feature events but can be used by tourists too.

Cancun’s new ice rink will have the capacity to fit 450 people, 150 on the actual ice rink and another 400 in the spectator areas.   

The rink’s estimated measurements will be a massive 200 x 100 feet.  

It will be located at the recently built Grand Outlet Mall, located a short distance outside of the Cancun Hotel Zone.   

The opening date of the new ice tank is expected to be announced in the near future.

Ice Skating In Cancun 

You might not think about ice skating when visiting Cancun, but it could be a nice change from the usual Cancun activities and a great way to cool off on a hot day.   

The ice rink will be available for recreational use at certain times, but it will also be used for other purposes.   

Figure skating, curling, ice hockey, and even speed skating practice can all be done on the Olympic-sized ice rink.

In addition to being used for recreational purposes and various sports practices, events will also be held at the new Cancun ice rink.   

This will give visitors the opportunity to watch team sports events while visiting Cancun.   

It’s just another option among the many things to do when vacationing in this ever-popular destination.

The Grand Outlet Mall 

The Grand Outlet Mall, also known as the Go Grand Outlet Riviera Maya, opened in 2023 with much fanfare and is the largest mall in Latin America.   

Located less than 10 minutes from the airport, the “mall” is much more than a shopping center for locals and tourists.   

As much as 30 percent of the space within the complex is being used for entertainment purposes, with axe throwing, go-karts, batting cages, live music spaces, and now, an ice rink.   

It’s truly a tourist attraction all its own.

Where To Stay Near This New Attraction 

The Grand Outlet Mall’s location conveniently puts it near several great Cancun hotels.   

The Hilton Cancun All-Inclusive Resort and the new AVA Resort that is scheduled to open on June 1st are just minutes from the outlet mall and tourist attraction.   

Even closer, though, located directly across the street from Go Grand Outlet Riviera Maya is one of the most popular hotels in the destination, Moon Palace Cancun.   

A stay at this popular hotel that’s just steps away from this new tourist attraction, will run you around $600 a night.
