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.
Relax by the water at Akumal Beach and Playa Tortugas. Escape the urban bustle at Scuba & Snorkeling and Zipline. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Cancun: Playa Norte (in Isla Mujeres) and Playa del Carmen (Fernando Rodriguez, Xcaret Park, & more). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Playa Delfines, tee off at Moon Palace Golf Course, don't miss a visit to El Parque de las Palapas, and get close to the beloved marine mammals with a swim-with-the-dolphins experience.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airports are Cancún International Airport and Cozumel International Airport. July in Cancun sees daily highs of 88°F and lows of 76°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
