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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Akumal Beach and Playa Norte. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Playa del Carmen (Quinta Avenida, Scuba & Snorkeling, & more) and Punta Laguna Nature Reserve (in Tulum). On the 16th (Sun), enjoy an adventurous day among the treetops at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Delfines, buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, take advantage of the amenities at Mandala Beach, and don't miss a visit to El Parque de las Palapas.

For maps, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Cancun trip builder.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Cancun can reach 87°F, while at night they dip to 75°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
