Cancun

Few destinations in Mexico dazzle visitors quite like Cancun, a modern resort town filled with glitzy hotels sitting on picturesque and well-developed Caribbean beaches.
Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church and Scorpion’s Temple will appeal to history buffs. Visit Akumal Beach and Playa Norte for some beach relaxation. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cancun: Croco Cun Zoo (in Puerto Morelos), Playa del Carmen (Parque Los Fundadores, La Playa Xpuha, & more) and Scuba & Snorkeling (in Puerto Aventuras). Spend a fascinating day underwater on the 6th (Thu) with a shark diving experience. On the 7th (Fri), enjoy an adventurous day among the treetops at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Museo Maya de Cancun, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, explore the activities along Aktun Chen, and steep yourself in history at El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey).

For photos, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, read Cancun vacation trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 86°F, and evening lows to 76°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
