Around Ruta Maya there are waterholes near mangrove area called Cenotes, some of them are filled with clean fresh water and are open for swimming.
As to the Cancun itself, the situation is not that optimistic. First of all do not forget to reserve a room in a hotel in advance otherwise you will have to look for some alternative accommodation. Hotels in the city are oriented on business groups or organized groups of tourists but not on individuals. An alternative accommodation is possible in the part of the city Ciudad Cancun. Prices there are lower and you can even find some hostels. As for the distance of the region from the centre of the city, it is not a problem because you can easily get a bus in any direction you need.
Anyway, Cancun is a wonderful destination and a unique area. It is really worth visiting.
