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.
Go for a jaunt from Cancun to Isla Mujeres to see Playa Norte about 1h 05 min away. On the 13th (Tue), enjoy an adventurous day among the treetops at some of the top local zipline courses and adventure parks. Next up on the itinerary: get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience, browse the different shops at La Isla Shopping Village, kick back and relax at Playa Delfines, and contemplate the long history of El Rey Ruins (Zona Arqueologica El Rey).
