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.
Visiting La Isla Shopping Village and Scuba & Snorkeling will get you outdoors. Visit Akumal Beach and Playa Tortugas for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Cancun: Isla Mujeres (Punta Sur & Playa Norte), Cozumel (Museo de la Isla de Cozumel, Cozumel Country Club, & more) and Nuestra Senora del Carmen Catholic Church (in Playa del Carmen). Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Playa Delfines, look for gifts at PLAZA PARTY, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Parroquia de Cristo Resucitado, and fulfill a lifelong dream with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.
