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.
Explore Cancun's surroundings by going to Akumal Beach (in Akumal), Playa Norte (in Isla Mujeres) and Playa del Carmen (Scuba & Snorkeling, Xplor Park, & more). Spend the 22nd (Sat) in unforgettable company with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience. And it doesn't end there: buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, stop by Plaza Las Americas, kick back and relax at Playa Tortugas, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Mercado 28.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 32°C, while at night they dip to 24°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
