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.
Get outdoors at Scuba & Snorkeling and Swim with Dolphins. Venture out of the city with trips to Akumal Beach (in Akumal), Quinta Avenida (in Playa del Carmen) and Isla Mujeres (Playa Norte & Punta Sur). There's lots more to do: stroll through Playa Delfines, buy something for everyone on your list at La Isla Shopping Village, look for all kinds of wild species at Punta Laguna Nature Reserve, and kick back and relax at Playa Tortugas.

To find more things to do, traveler tips, other places to visit, and other 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 November, daytime highs in Cancun are 82°F, while nighttime lows are 69°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
