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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Cancun: Croco Cun Zoo (in Puerto Morelos), Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling & Quinta Avenida) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). There's much more to do: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, take in the pleasant sights at Avenida Kukulkan, enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Delfines, and look for gifts at Galeria Balance Cancun.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In July in Cancun, expect temperatures between 87°F during the day and 75°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
