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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling & Quinta Avenida). There's much more to do: browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, look for gifts at Plaza Las Americas, kick back and relax at Playa Delfines, and get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

For traveler tips, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, refer to the Cancun trip generator.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. December in Cancun sees daily highs of 81°F and lows of 69°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
