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, Xplor Park, & more) and Akumal Beach (in Akumal). Spend the 12th (Mon) in unforgettable company with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. And it doesn't end there: browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, contemplate the long history of El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey), and kick back and relax at Playa Delfines.

In March, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 82°F, while at night they dip to 69°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
